Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program features our regular PANW report with dispatches on the announcement by the federal government that it would not proceed with the building of an oil pipeline in North Dakota which has sparked mass demonstrations by Native peoples in the area; African National Congress leaders in South Africa have spoken out against the destruction of public education property by students demanding a reduction in tuition; in Zimbabwe the ruling ZANU-PF party has announced major cuts in the civil service and public spending amid a new round of political unrest; and finally the DPRK has conducted a successful launch of a defense missile system drawing condemnation from the United States and its allies. In the second hour we focus on the 45th anniverdary of the Attica Prison Rebellion in New York state beginning on September 9, 1971. In the final segments we continue our month-long focus on the literary contributions of African people through the works of Langston Hughes.
