SORT BY Relevancy
They can lock us down but they can't hold us down. We are going to pay respect to some of our political prisoners and speak on how they try to create propaganda's in hopes of turning their own people away. A political prisoner is someone imprisoned because they have opposed or criticized the government responsible. The term is used by persons or groups challenging the legitimacy of the detention of a prisoner. Supporters of the term define a political prisoner as someone who is imprisoned for his or her participation in political activity. If a political offense was not the official reason for detention, the term would imply that the detention was motivated by the prisoner's politics.

Thank you for joining this segment of The Struggle Continues. This week we talk with our first time guest, Orie Lumumba, about Political Prisoners. Yes, we expose yet another dirty little secret of the U.S.!
Lumumba has worked extensively with many of our people whose terms of incarceration and protracted detainments are, however neatly and mysteriously packaged and presented to the public, politically motivated! Come learn with us as we define the classification of prisoners, e.g. social, political, death-row etc. Join our exploration and analysis of, what this program coins as, the "Recidivism Racketeer:" who gets released; why are they released; how long before their expected reincarceration; and, the silver bullet, how does this impact and effect others who should be released.
Let's support and join forces with Lumumba as he instructs us on how we can help to hasten the release of all Political Prisoners and enusre that their basic human needs are met in the interim.
Here are some resources:
Cutting through the political clutter to bring you the lattest news in an intelligent and funny way.

“MOTHER HORRIFIED AFTER JAILED SON PICTURED WITH SWOLLEN EYE AND ROPE AROUND HIS NECK”http://blacklikemoi.com/2015/03/mother-horrified-after-jailed-son-pictured-with-swollen-eye-and-rope-around-his-neck/
Since the last week of March, social media continues to blow up commenting on this story. So much so, we wanted to hear your comments live on “talk back Tuesday’s.” Unfortunately too many mothers have cried over their sons being incarcerated, but how many of us focus on the safety of prison life? It may be more American to focus on the conditions of our loved ones who go off to war. Nevertheless, both present with more similarities than differences, when they return to civil society. Both prisoners and soldiers live in war zones that require them be in survive or die mode. Living at code red for a significant amount of time and then returning to civil society without any real transition comes down to trained assassins living in communities that do not recognize them. We only assume and make judgments about where they’ve been, and demand that they just fall in line with the rest of us. With social media giving us a glimpse of prison reality and our war hero’s returning home physically but function like they are still in level 5, means that we have to get real about PTSD and other mental dysfunctions brought on by extreme life experiences. Lets Talk!
Come Get on the COUCH with The 3 Counselors and a Couch and Bring a FRIEND!!!!!
Rev. Edward Pinkney, Pastor of God House of Faith in Benton Harbor, Michigan and President of BANCO, is a hard working activist who found himself in an unexpected place. Jail.
Toni Meekey Stith, Chicago community activist working with Families of Those Wrongfully Convicted and candidate for Alderman of the 34th Ward, found herself also in an unexpected place. Jail.
Both recognize trumped up charges placed against them which seem to originate from those whose positions of authority they are threatening with their public activism.
We like to believe that America is a democracy where people are treated equally under the law but recent events have made it clear that this is not so. Many are outraged that those in "low income" communities tend to be arrested and jailed more often than those from affluent communities. But what about the injustice against those working people who are targeted simply because they dare to challenge those in authority? Sometimes those in power will become cruel and ruthless if threatened with the loss of a political position. Is jail being used as a tool by some in authority to silence their opposition?
Title says it all, we talk police brutality, freddy gray, political correctness, daredevil on netfli
Why are so many people of color from oppressed communities routinely disengaged when it comes to mainstream politics in the United States? What role has structural racism, white supremacy and capitalism played in this? What are some of the things that need to be done in order for historically oppressed people of color to develop vastly different (and more effective) political alternatives to the mainstream Democratic and Republican parties? Tune in to this show to hear the thoughts and perspectives of several college students regarding this issue, and many more.
