    Christina Fast -A STERILE Approach to Health Care in West Africa

    in Culture

    Please join host Frankie Picasso this Thursday, August 13th at 1:00 pm EDT on The Good Radio Network when she is joined by her guest, Christina Fast,  an incredible young Canadian woman who founded SPECTrust, ‘Sterile Processing Education Charitable Trust’). The trust  which that was established to support education related to effective sterile processing and infection control practices in hospitals and clinics in developing countries such as Guinea, Sierra Leone, Congo and Madagascar.

    Christina first went to West Africa in 2011 when she volunteered to be an OR Sterilizer for Mercy Ships Canada. While on board, she was able to teach to some crew as a well as local staff  the International course on Sterilization that she was currently delivering in Calgary.

    Curious about the local hospital, Christina asked these nurses if they would take her to visit the local hospital to view their sterilization setup. She almost wished she hadn’t. ‘

    Not only were their sterilization techniques unsanitary, “They had a few drum sterilizers that had been broken for an unknown length of time.” says Christina, but the infection rates post surgery were like 90% compared to the hospital where Christina worked was 0.03% surgically related infection rate.

    Touring that hospital, Christina realized at that moment that she hadn't been called to Africa to serve onboard, but to be a voice for this unseen and so crucially important area of the hospitals.”

    Since that visit, Christina has developed more training, and continues to volunteer sterilization techniques in collaboration with the African Mercy.

    Through a government grant, Christina has been able to purchase Pressure Cookers that she brings to hospitals and medical centres throughout West Africa in an attempt to increase the sterility of their instruments.

    Stay tuned to hear her story.

    "The psychic distance between love and hate could be the mechanical difference between a smile and a sneer, or it could be the journey of a nervous impulse form the depths of one’s brain to the tip of one’s toe.  But this impulse in its path through North america nerves may, if it is honest, find the passage disputed: may find the leap form the fiber of hate to that of love too taxing on its meager store energy—and so the long trip back may never be completed, may end in reconnaissance, a compromises, and then a lie..... "

    This myth of the creation of the white race, called “Yacub’s History’” is an inversion of the racial death-wish of American Negroes today.  Quite simply, many Negroes believe, as the principle of assimilation into white America implies, that the race problem in America cannot be settled until all traces of the black race are eliminated.  Toward this end, many Negroes loathe the very idea of two very dark Negroes mating.  The children, they say, will come out ugly. What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable.  What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable.  From the widespread use of cosmetics to bleach the black out of one’s skin and other concoctions to take Africa out of one’s hair, to the extreme, restored to by more  Negroes than one might wash to believe, of undergoing nose thinning and lip-clipping operations, the racial death-wish of american Negroes—Yacub’s goal—takes its terrible toll. What has been happening for the past four hundred years is that the white man, through his access to black women. has been pumping his and genes of the blacks—i.e., has been fulfilling Yacub’s plan and accelerating the Negroes on death-wish."

    Tonight our show will be about those SELF HATING NEGROES, oh yeh you know them. “The psychic distance between love and hate could be the mechanical difference between a smile and a sneer, or it could be the journey of a nervous impulse in its path through North American nerves may, if it is honest, find the passage disputed:  may find the leap form the fiber of hate to that of love too taxing on its meager store of energy—and so the long trip may never be completed, may end in a reconnaissance, a compromise, and then a lie.  

    Self-hatred takes many forms; sometimes it can be detected by no one, not by the keenest observer, not by the self-hater himself, not by his most intimate friends. Ethnic self-hater himself is even more difficult to detect.  But in American Negroes, the ethnic self hatred often takes the bizarre from of a racial death wish, with many and elusive manifestations. Ironically, it provides much of the impetus behind the motivations go integration.  And the attempt to suppress or deny such drives in ones psyche leads many American Negro to become ostentatious separationists,  black Muslims, and Back to Africa advocates.

    The murder of Malcolm X, the exile of Robert F. Williams, who was forced the flee to Cuba with the combined terrors of the FBI and the minions of Southern justice snapping at his heels, and the exile of the late W.E.G.  Du Bois, who, in the sunset of a valiant life, made three symbolic gestures as a final legacy to his people (renouncing his American citizenship, ‘returning’ to Africa to become a citizen of Ghana, and cursing capitalism while extolling communism as the hope of the future) —these three events on the one hand, and on the other hand the award of a Nobel Prize to Martin Luther King and the inflation of the image to that of an international hero, bear witness to  the historical fact that the only Negro American allowed to attain national or international fame have been the puppets and lakers of the white power structure—and entertainers and athletes….

    It is against the back ground of the traditional role of the Negro entertainer and athlete in racial crisis and the rebellion against that tradition — that the Muhammad  Ali— Floyd Patterson fight for the heavyweight championship must be viewed."  Soul On Ice by Eldridge Cleaver 

    "Malcolm X knew that he needed a prominent ally to help him launch a new organization once his permanent suspension became public.   It so happened that Cassius Clay, scheduled to fight Sonny Liston  for the heavyweight championship of the world, was a good friend of Malcolm X, one of the few people Malcolm X ever invited to this house….." JUdas Factor Karl Evanzz

    "The broad support for Muhammed Ali among negroes had nothing to do with the black Muslims’  racist ideology.  Even the followers of the late beloved Malcolm X, many of whom despise Muhammad Ali for the scurvy remarks he made about the fallen Malcolm….." Soul On Ice

    Initial Reaction on the Assassination of Malcolm X

    After Malcolm made his pilgrimage to Mecca, completing a triumphal tour of Africa and the Near East, during which he received the high honors of visiting dignitary, he returned to the U.S.A. and set about building his newly found Organization of Afro-American Unity.  He established the Muslim Mosque, Inc., to receive the Muslims he thought would pull away from Elijah. The Muslim Mosque would teach Orthodox Islam, under the direction of Sheik Ahmed Hassoun from the Holy City of Mecca.  Grand Sheik Muhammad Sarur Al-Sabban, Secretary General of the Muslim World League, had offered the services of Shei Ahmed, help Malcolm X in his efforts .......
    "So now Malcolm is no more. The boot lickers, Uncle Toms, lackeys, and stooges of the white power structure have done their best to denigrate Malcolm, to root him out of his people's heart, to tarnish his memory.  But their million-worded lies fall on deaf ears.  As Ossie Davis so eloquently expressed it in his immortal eulogy.   "If you knew him you would know why we must honor him: Malcolm was our man hood, our living, black manhood!  This was his meaning to his people. And, in honoring him, we honor the best I ourselves..... However much we may have differed with him -----or with each other about him and his value as a man, let his going from us serve only to bring us together, now.  Consigning these mortal remains to earth, the common mother of us all, secure in the knowledge that we place in the ground is no more now a man---but a come forth again to meet us. And we will know him then for what he was and is ---- a Prince ------our own black shining Prince!----- who did n't hesitate to die, because he loved us so." Ossie Davis 
    We shall have our manhood. We shall have it or the earth will be leveled by our attempts to gain it." SOUL ON ICE, by ELDRIDGE CLEAVER

    If we get rid of the enemy in a united common struggle it would be easy to transform this unity into a common theme of things.  We are not separate nations of men to continue the pattern of fighting amongst ourselves.  We are a large collection of communities  who can unite and fight together against our common enemy.  the United States domination over all our territories equals a reactionary (in opposition to the interest of all) set of circumstances among our communities.  Reactionary Inter-communalism.  We can transform these circumstances to our benefit: Revolutionary Inter-communalism.

    On the continent of Africa there are people who look like us.  They are Black.  We are brothers because our struggle is common.  We have both suffered under the White racism and under oppression.  This is why we should not let the reactionaries of the world be the only ones communicating across the waters of the masses of land. We have a common interest to survive, and therefore, we can learn from each other." 

    "Despite their religious differences, they came together. Some were communists; some were socialists; some were capitalists. Despite their economic and political differences, they came together. All of them were black, brown, red, or yellow.

    The number-one thing that was not allowed to attend the Bandung conference was the white man. He couldn’t come. Once they excluded the white man, they found that they could get together. Once they kept him out, everybody else fell right in and fell in line. This is the thing that you and I have to understand. And these people who came together didn’t have nuclear weapons; they didn’t have jet planes; they didn’t have all of the heavy armaments that the white man has. But they had unity."

    "What does the Black Panther Party mean when we say that we are revolutionary inter-communalists? In a few words, we believe that the world's people from a collection of communities, all dominated or controlled, by those who rule the United States.  The most common definition for a nation (as opposed to a community) is a group of human beings who have in common their own land territory, economic system, culture ( or way of day to day living), language, etc.  At one time men from one nation would go out, and through warfare, conquer other nations.  The conquer would bring under their control the resources, the people, perhaps everything that was sovereign or sacred to the other nations.  A variety of things would result: A government of the conquered nation; the foreign language may be imposed upon the people; the name of the nation might be changed; or most importantly, the economy of the conquered nation would be fully controlled by the conquerors." Huey P. Newton .

    "We have a common enemy. We have this in common: We have a common oppressor, a common exploiter, and a common discriminator. But once we all realize that we have this common enemy, then we unite on the basis of what we have in common. And what we have foremost in common is that enemy — the white man. He’s an enemy to all of us. I know some of you all think that some of them aren’t enemies. Time will tell.
    In Bandung back in, I think, 1954, was the first unity meeting in centuries of black people. And once you study what happened at the Bandung conference, and the results of the Bandung conference, it actually serves as a model for the same procedure you and I can use to get our problems solved. At Bandung all the nations came together. Their were dark nations from Africa and Asia." MALCOLM EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZZ

    The oppression of the people of the world is not just limited to brutal force which is nothing more than conquest by the American Government the force of the illigal strong arm of the Secret Socities of the Wealthy Pigs of Arostocracy, but the economic conditions created by greed of the rich and those who seek to be rich. HUEY P. NEWTON  put it bluntly in his :“UNITING AGAINST A COMMON ENEMY OCTOBER 23, 1971”To achieve this end, we struggle here in the United States to get rid of our oppression.others struggle inside their territory boundaries to get rid of oppression.  The more territory  we liberate in the world, the closer we will come to an end to all oppression .  The common factor that binds us all is not only the fact of oppression but the oppressor:  the United States Government and its ruling circle.  We, the people of the world, have been brought together under strange circumstances.   We are united against a common enemy.  Today the philosophy of revolutionary inter communalism dictates the the survival programs implemented by and with the people here in America and those same basic People’s Survival Programs being implemented in Mozambique by the Mozambique Liberation Front are essential to bringing about world unity, from Africa to the Black community inside America, developing and uniting against a common enemy.  That enemy has rolled up into one large hand the power of the World."
