Ron Breland U.S.
Army Staff Sergeant Ron Breland (Ret.) served in the United States Army from 1990 to 2005as a DoD Certified Firefighter and a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Specialist. As a third generation firefighter, Breland realized early that his destiny was to serve. In 1993, Breland volunteered for the humanitarian-turned-combat mission in Mogadishu,Somalia where he engaged the enemy on his own ground. Unbeknownst to Breland at the time, he suffered a minor Traumatic Brain Injury after a truck explosion. He was also a Quick Reaction Force Member and thwarted a surprise attack on his basecamp by two Somali insurgents which he killed quickly during the “Battle of the Black Sea”. A tour to the war torn region of Kosovo would come later, in 1999, where then Sergeant Breland was hand-picked by the XVIII Airborne Corps Command Staff and named the Task Force Falcon Fire Chief, serving under then BG Carlos Sanchez. Breland successfully ran fire stations on three base camps in two countries while forging mutual aid agreements between the United States

Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. This broadcast features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the current power shortages in the Southern African nation of Zimbabwe where the government is attempting to resolve the crisis along with a burgeoning income gap among executives and the majority of working and poor people; the United States supported regime in Somalia faced another attempt to impeach the current president in Mogadishu; a political analyst suggests that Kenya is not a middle-income state which poses huge economic challenges for the future; and fighting continues among internecine rebel groups in the North African state of Libya where in Benghazi, the birthplace of the 2011 counter-revolution, people are being killed even under a curfew imposed on the city recently. In our second and third hours we conclude the month-long focus on race relations in the U.S. and internationally. An examination of the slave burial grounds discovered in New York City reveals a profound history of African people in that region of the country. Also the so-called "Tulsa Riot" of 1921 is reviewed as one the worst acts of mass slaughter and destruction in the U.S. directed against African Americans. Finally a retrospective on the South African Revolution is presented through an audio documentary championing the heroic role of the masses in that country.
African Media Association Malta is a new NGO bringing together African journalists who have come to Malta. The organisation has won start-up funding* for it's first project “Somali Media Malta”.
The aim of the Project is to bring information to African immigrants in Malta, such as news, current affairs, information how to live in Malta, music and culture etc. The team has been formed by professional journalists who escaped persecution in Somalia to set up new life in Europe, and have gained legal status here.
In the short term the plan is to set up a website and produce radio programmes to broadcast in Somali language on internet based Blog Talk Radio (or similar), and any Community Radio Network willing to co-operate. Somali nationals are the largest African immigrant group in Malta.
Longer term, other languages will be added.
Many immigrants from Africa are unaware of the One Radio show for them, Connect Africa, mostly playing African music, and in English language. That is the only radio broadcast currently in Malta for immigrants, broadcast weekly on Thursday evenings at 8 pm on 92.7 FM, on-line streaming at www.one.com.mt 92.7, and with podcast links to past shows – find Connect Africa Radio on Facebook.
One objective is to seek consent of Malta Government and Agencies to enable new arrivals in Detention Centres, and those who have been processed and are in Open Centres, to be able to hear information in Somali language from the time of arrival in Malta. There is no such service at present and many do not speak English or Maltese on arrival.
The young team are all under 27years old, as are most of the African immigrants in Malta.

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.
