5 Closing Music , them song of O Canada
Global Peeks looks at US repression, persecution and some lessons in the struggle against it in light of the police onslaught of Black people & the newly released Senate Report on the CIA interrogation of political prisoners at various sites across the world. We would hear Historic lessons & commentary by Political Prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, Activist Pam Africa & others as well as music of consciousness & revolution.
SUPPORT THIS ISSUE: Defeat Pennsylvania Senate Bill 508 – signed by Governor Tom Corbett – which prohibits prisoners and those formerly incarcerated from speaking publicly. The law targets journalists, non-profits and individuals who aid prisoners in communicating to the outside world.
This law is designed to stop the commentaries of Mumia Abu Jamal from being recorded and aired to the outside world. Protect the First Amendment right to free speech.

I know you're workin' for the CIA - They wouldn't have you in the Ma-fi-a (from Why Can’t We be Friends,by WAR; 1974/75)
The CIA has been exposed, and the principals are scurrying for position.
Senator Diane Feinstein, Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee released this week, the very controversial CIA Report, which provided graphic detail of torture (AKA enhanced interrogation techniques) of suspected conspirators of the 9/11 attacks, in 2001.
Whatever altruism she may possess, it does seem somewhat, she decided to take a major parting shot at the GOP, as her leadership tenure and that of the Senate Democrats, comes to an end. .
Barack Obama and John McCain, took strong positions against torture, while Dick Cheney and the present Director of the CIA, defined the tactics, arguing that the information extracted, prevented further attacks, thus, saving American lives.
While this report is perhaps the highest level of transparency ever, of the Agency, one has to wonder, what information was left out?
Frankly, not only does this open up for a discussion of information-extraction tactics, but the larger issue of the CIA itself, in its historic role in American and world politics, in Africa, for example.
This should be a most provocative discussion on Critical Discourse.
So, tune in this Saturday, at 6 AM, and tell your friends!
