Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We feature our regular PANW reports with dispatches on Nigeria where attacks continue by Boko Haram fighters in the northeast and in the political capital of Abuja in light of the 55th anniversary of the independence of the West African state; in Burkina Faso calls grow louder for the prosecution of Gen. Gilbert Diendere, intelligence director of the presidential security regiment, who led a military coup aimed at derailing national elections scheduled for October; western media reports are carrying more objective and critical stories on the United States supported and coordinated airstrikes and ground operations in the Middle Eastern state of Yemen; and the Russian military continues its operations in Syria in conjunction with the army of President Bashar al-Assad. In the second hour we continue our month-long focus on the history and character of state repression in the U.S. and internationally with archived audio files on the first U.S. President George Washington and his involvement in African enslavement as well as the use of the death penalty in America. Rare declassified tapes are available on the thinking of former U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson on the assassination of his predecessor John F. Kennedy. In the final hour we cover events surrounding the United Nations 70th General Assembly in New York City. The UN Declaration for Human Rights will be reviewed along with the address of Republic of Namibia President Hage Giengob at the gathering taking place in New York.
