Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The broadcast presents our regular PANW reports with dispatches on recent developments in the West African state of Burkina Faso where a military coup was recently defeated through mass pressure and international political intervention; the bombing in Turkey which killed nearly 100 people has sent shockwaves through the NATO state; an Ohio prosecutor has declared the police killing of 12-year-old African American youth Tamir Rice during 2014 as being justified; Palestinians are fighting back against the repressive apparatus of the State of Israel resulting in the deaths of six people in the last few days; and the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March took place in Washington, D.C. on October 10. The second hour continues our month-long focus on state repression in the United States with special segments on the role of British imperialsm in the Atlantic Slave Trade and the exploitation of African people in the U.S. after the legal abolition of enslavement during the late 19th and early decades of the 20th century. The final hour looks at the resistance to national oppression through labor organizing and revolutionary culture during the middle decades of the previous century.
