Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We will feature our regular PANW reports with dispatches on events involving the United States supported and coordinated occupation of Somalia by the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) where a base was overrun recently killing AU troops and capturing Ugandan soldiers; the British media has finally exposed the role of their government in the ongoing bombing and ground operations aimed at taking control of Yemen from the Ansurallah movement and its allies; the European migration crisis is a direct result of imperialist militarism in Africa, the Middle East and Asia illustrating the racist character of immigration policy and the horrendous treatment being meted out to migrants in Hungary; and the Black Lives Matter movement is being targeted for intelligence and law-enforcement disruption inside the U.S. while the number of deaths at the hands of the police has reached astronomical proportions despite Washington's "human rights" rhetoric around the world. In the second and third hours we focus on our month-long examination of the history of race relations in the U.S. and internationally. The program highlights an interview with long-held American Indian Movement political prisoner Leonard Peltier and an historical account of the role of the Black Seminoles in the fight against U.S. imperialist expansionism in the North American southeast. Finally we look back at the Attica Rebellion some 44 years later and the worsening problems of the prison-industrial-complex and its role in the national oppression of African Americans.
