An Open Letter to Rwandans, Congolese and all our Friends to Protest against Dictator Kagame
I write this letter on behalf of Great Lakes Human Rights Link inviting you to come in big numbers when holding our protest against the Rwandan Dictator Paul Kagame which will take place on 20/10/2014 near SAVOY HOTEL in London.
There’s plenty of suffering in Rwanda and Congo, therefore this demonstration will show the World and the British People in particular the kind of a man their government supports with huge sums of money despite his poor human rights record.
President Kagame bears all the responsibility for the suffering of all the people of Rwanda and Congo, but also the British government that keep supporting the man recognised as the war criminal president.
Our protest therefore, will motivate the British taxpayer, although they are not involved in the politics to pursue their desired goals, they have a right to know from our voices where their money goes and encourage their government to pressure Kagame to put to an end to the system that does not only kill its own people but also in neighbouring Congo.
As you all know our protest is peaceful and must hold the highest degree of respect for others especially passers-by or those who might disagree with you about any issue regarding your cause, do not surround them, shove them, steal their phone and call them different labels. Having a different view of where blame and responsibility lie against Kagame does not make someone a proxy-combatant for you to attack.
In fact, as usual come with banners and placards that illustrate Kagame’s true colours as a murderer and a dictator.

We will explore every aspect on education, how the public school system have not change much since the segregation era. The teachers of today are really not teaching students, they are teaching student to just pass a standardized test. Also we will talk about the missing subjects that the school system will not teach African American students in school.
Tune in to The Gist of Freedom, The Black History Internet Radio show with host Shellie Gaines as we welcome Award winning Playwright & Author Gabrielle Pina! Gabrielle will talk to Shellie about her play "Letters From Zora" ~Starring Vanessa Bell Calloway. Letters From Zora is currently running at the crossroadstheatrecompany.org!
“Letters from Zora: In Her Own Words,” for which the meticulous and poetic Gabrielle Denise Pina, a novelist in her own right, collected Zora’s massive correspondence and crafted it into a monologue delivered at New Brunswick’s Crossroads Theatre with wit, sincerity, and majesty by Vanessa Bell Calloway.
Calloway’s feat of memory is stunning enough. In more than 100 minutes, without a chance to pause, let alone to stop for an intermission, the actress never stumbled, missed a cue for transition, or failed to articulate the genius, both as a writer, and as a woman determined to live independently according to her own principles, of Zora Neale Hurston.
Calloway’s performance is enchanting. Besides being fluid and heartfelt, it reminds us, thanks to Pina’s excellent editing and composition, how extraordinary and how pioneering Zora was.
Everything Zora for stood and fervently believed is revealed in Pina’s text, and Calloway magically embodies the grit and strongmindedness of Zora along with her femininity, abundant sense of humor, and disdain for anything false or condescending.
Yes, the words as Pina’s title tells us plainly, are Zora’s, but Pina is the one who had to take a volume of letters and make them into one cohesive, listenable and "entertaining" work."
ia to Libya, on Radio Revolution.
Indeed, from Liberia to Libya the past couple years we have seen imperialist interventions whether under the guise of health or humanitarianism, the continued economic colonialism and enslavement of the African continent, in both North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, has continued into the 21st century. Will a Lumumba or Mandela emerge as a new leader to fight the continued oppression of the West, in particular the US empire and NATO gangsters? We discuss this scenario, guests are free to call in or ask questions in chat box, facebook, etc.
Tonight Pam Degand will be joined by a special co-host Charity Wilder-Fischer along with Kevin W. Womble and our special guest is Publisher and Author Heddrick McBride of McBride Stories Collection
Mr. McBride will be our guest this Sunday evening at 8:00 pm Eastern time. He is the owner/author of a collection of stories that are geared towards African American children. The colorful covers really jump out and catch one's eye. Heddrick's passion came from noticing there were very few books in bookstores, libraries, etc. that were just for black children. The books are very informative and fun at the same time.
He has also worked with ex-offenders in order to help them understand just how important family and being a responsible citizen is.

Are men responsible for impregnating women and if so does that mean women are powerless and have no voice or choice in deciding to become a mother?
Even if one were to say, yes it is irresponsible of men not to think and create children they cannot and will not support, how successful has society been in holding men accountable? Is child support enough?
Equally responsible is that the same as saying equally accountable?
