    Government to ban imports of Chips from South Africa - IS THIS GOOD POLICY?.

    in News

    "GOVERNMENT will ban chain stores from importing certain processed foodstuffs such as potatoes if they fail to comply with the directive by President Lungu to stock locally produced goods.


    Deputy minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry Miles Sampa has since given a two-month ultimatum to international chain stores such as Shoprite, Spar, Pick n Pay and Hungry Lion to start buying potatoes produced by local farmers."

    Friday FARcast: Bring On The Flood, Dead Reckoning & Remembering Kenneth Warren

    in Spirituality

    The air is thick with the compulsive dread that spreads like a dark thundercloud before an epic storm. If you can't feel it, you aren't alive.  The administration is pushing hard to pass the TPP, which effectively ends America as we know it, giving title and control, through consent to the major corporations, who will govern commerce and goods with no restrictions and no tarrifs or safeguards for American workers and products.  While Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are beating the drums to raise the minimum wage, they're debating for a hollow platform, an aging paradigm and soon-to-be discarded economic structure.  Rumors of pole shift and tectonic rupture abound.  California is supposed to meet it's demise in just six days, while the Madrid fault shudders and shakes.  More false flag protests are waiting in the wings and an army assembles in the southern states.  What's it all mean and where is it headed?


    We're in a time of reckoning and the spiritual atom smasher, the real CERN is revving up, accelerating the shift in each and every one of us.  I'll be discussing this process and where I think it's headed. 


    I'll also take some time to honor a great person and a very dear friend, Kenneth Warren.  Ken was a writer, social critic, mystic, researcher and communal record keeper.  He was a sage and vizier of the highest order and gracious, humble man. Ken passed yesterday morning.  I am replaying an interview I did with him after he got back from the Vincent Ferrini conference.  Ken was an acolyte of the great, American poet, Charles Olson. His magnum opus work is "Capt. Poetry's Sucker Punch, A Guide To The Homeric Punkhole, 1980 - 2012."

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    BISHOP DR. LAWRENCE MWAMBA PRESENTS, ZAMBIANS FOR JUSTICE IN SOUTH AFRICA

    in Radio

    DEUTRONOMY 27: 19.


    CURSED BE HE THAT PERVERTETH THE JUDGEMENT OF THE STRANGER, THE FATHERLESS AND WIDOW. AND ALL HE PEOPLE SHALL SAY AMEN.


    It came to our attention and that of the whole world.  How that innocent imigrants from within Africa had travelled to South Africa seeking for a better life and in turn help build tthe economy of South Africa.  Many did mange to get juobs in South Africa, and some manged to start their own businesses.  Over the years many of the imigrants were established as citizens of South Africa  Others were on their way to obtain legal status of becoming legal residents of South Africa.


    A Xenophobic [Deep hatrate of foreigners or imigrants]  attitude brewed in many quaters of South Africa.  hateful words spoken by some chief insitigating attacks on innocent imigrants was a regratable behavior of a person in leadership. Suddenly innocent foreigners from Angola, Mozambique, Nigeria, Malawi, Zambia and other African countries were killed in cold blood.  Foreigners were torched and burnt alive using car tyres, others were axed to death the perpertrators using knives, matchets and whatever steel weapon they could lay heir hands on.  The foreigners cried for mercy but never got any.  People mainly South Africans just looked on and did nothing to help these innocent victims, while others just laughed the whole event off.


    One man had his brains axed out of his head, he lay dying with his brains next to him, anothjer had his intestines cut out of his stomach and they were handing out of his body. Another had car tyres dressed over their necks and set on fire. These innocent foreigners were burnt to death with no remedy.  Another man was pictured with a South African so called crook yielding a kniofe over his face ready to stub and skice him to death and nothing was done.

    Prophetic Update

    in Religion

    "Extremism" Word - "The seeds of wickedness have been sown in the ignorant and destruction lays waste at noonday to those who abhor righteousness.


    "The Deliverers"  - “I will ROAR out of Zion, and MY standard will be lifted up to all nations! I have a controversy with the nations. Will the pot say to it’s maker, He did not make me?  Will the men of the earth finally realize their foolishness before Me? There is no other god besides Me, yet the world runs after wood and clay idols, and gold and silver.  Well I say,  The gold is Mine, and the silver is Mine! And all the glory that is in the earth is from My creation!  Therefore oh sons of men, hold tight to your King.  Do not allow the worlds goods to hold you!  For I am coming again like a mighty rushing wind, and every knee shall bow before Me....

    1.As a youth living in Los Angeles, CA, Akubundu Amazu-Lott experienced first hand being profiled by the police. On at least a half dozen occasions he was pulled over at gun-point by the LAPD. This experience contributed to his understanding that African people in America were treated as second-class citizens. He made his way out of Los Angeles to SJSU. There he participated in sports (football) and received his B.S. in Business Administration and his Master of Urban Planning. He joined the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (AAPRP) in 1979 and is currently on the Central Committee and the California Chapter Coordinating Council. It is through his extensive study of Pan-Africanism and the struggles of oppressed people globally that he remains motivated to work for positive change. He has been an adjunct professor at SJSU for the past seven years in the African-American Studies Department.

    3 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.


    14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.


    15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.


    16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.


    17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.


    18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.


    19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.


    20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.


    21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Today is the Birthday of our most prolific example of a Black Father, a Black Leader, a Black Brother, a Muslim with morals, a Black Husband that knew his duty to provide for his wife and children and to protect them from all harm.  On February 13, 1965 the Nation of Islam bombed the house of Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz. Having the instincts of a warrior he safely evacuated his family and still made an engagement to the people of Detroit. "The newly awakened people all over the world pose a problem for what's known as Western interests, which is imperialism, colonialism, racism, and all these other negative isms or vulturistic isms. Just as the external forces pose a grave threat, they can now see that the internal forces pose an even greater threat. But the internal forces pose an even greater threat only when they have properly analyzed the situation and know what the stakes really are. Just by advocating a coalition of Africans, Afro-Americans, Arabs, and Asians who live within the structure, it automatically has upset France, which is supposed to be one of the most liberal--heh!--countries on earth, and it made them expose their hand. England the same way. And I don't have to tell you about this country that we are living in now. So when you count the number of dark-skinned people in the Western Hemisphere you can see that there are probably over 100 million. When you consider Brazil has two-thirds what we call colored, or nonwhite, and Venezuela, Honduras and other Central American countries, Cuba and Jamaica, and the United States and even Canada--when you total all these people up, you have probably over 100 million. And this 100 million on the inside of the power structure today is what is causing a great deal of concern for the power structure itself."
