    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Tonight on World Wide Africa The Voice of the Pan African movement we continue with the reading of Cheick Ahta Diop, Civilization or Barbarism and our look at the failure of the American Government in 1968.  We will analyze how the lie of White Supremacy can not survive by comparing the African Mode of Politics and the Indo-Aryan Mode of Politics.  Contrasting the difference between the actual ancient governments and the longevity of the political system itself.  The Black Panther Party for Self Defense patterned their system of body politic according to the A.M.P. so that the people would understand that you can’t get blood from a rock.  A metaphoric statement of personification of the intimate object, which is the meaning of Chattel.   So to the White Supremacist who lies about everything, we could have never been Chattel because we bleed.  All human life comes form the African, and therefore so do these Ino-Aryan people the Caucasian people. Every empire they have set up has come to an abrupt end, where as our Pharaoh’s of Egypt that ruled the world thrived for millions of years called Dynasties.  


    So if we become a separate government for the survival of our people against and oppressive government we have enforced our rights as human beings.  The inalienable right to choose the government we give our consent to be governed by.  Every faction of the “Panther Mode of Politics” joined in a political and social body is the worst nightmare of those who wish to keep us in an oppressive state.

    Today is dedicated to our lovely Martin Luther King Jr., devoted brother of Freedoms cause. Family man, Reverend of a Flock leader of the Southern Christian Society.  For his dedication against the outrageous genocide of the South East Asian Population. His dynamic Boycott of the goods from the manufactures who supported the oppression and the war against a free people of the world other than, Black and Brown Americans. Causing the destruction of both social orders and causing mass world wide Revolution that is still being waged against the WHITE SUPREMACIST  OF CORPORATE AMERICA.   A ruthless and diabolical machine that has taken hold of the free world like a pitt bull dog and has refused to let Freedom Ring from every mole hill in Mississippi, to the mountain top of Kilimanjaro, to the great ice tundra to the Tibetan steeps,  to the great Water Falls of the Amazon, to the Virginia sculpted clefts of the aboriginal of Australia. In every venue the Black race is being attacked even more than during the time of Dr. King.  Yet his death by the American Governments Counter Intelligence Police was a major loss for us here in America, but it signaled the slaughter of all Black leaders who were fighting for the cause of the oppressed peoples of the World. And now the general population is under the same attack as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics


    We believe that the government must provide, free of charge,
    for the people, health facilities that will not only treat our illnesses, most of which are a result of our oppression, but that will also develop preventative medical programs to guarantee our future survival. We believe that mass health education and research programs must be developed to give all Black and oppressed people access to advanced sCienti c and medical information, so we may provide ourselves with proper medical attention and care. 


    Point Six of the Black Panther Party Program's Platform of March 29, 1972, explains the reasons for the institution ofthe People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics, which provide free medical treatment and preventative medi­ cal care for the community. Private hospitals and doctors charge fees far more expensive than poor people can a ord, while public hospitals and clinics are so overcrowded and understa ed that their services are almost totally inade­ quate. The People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics o er an alternative to this problem.


     


    The clinics provide comprehensive health care for the community. Doctors treat  patients for common physical ailments and refer them to spe­ cialists if necessary. Laboratory testing is also provided in conjunction with local hospitals.


    Along with the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation, the clinics con­ duct testing and research for a cure for sickle-cell anemia.


    Child health is a serious problem in the Black community, and the clinics have developed a ChildHealth Care Program to meet this community need. The Child Health Care Program provides immunizations; screening and sickle cell anemia iron de ciency anemia, and tuberculosis; referrals; and complete physi­ cal examinations as well as treatment of illnesses."

    The Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation has raised the consciousness ofthe community, first by giving it the basic facts about the disease, and second by bringing to its attention the neglect of the disease in medical research. The community has learned through the foundation 's program that the people  themselves can organize and find solutions to the problems that daily affect their survival. HUEY P. NEWTON The 63rd session of the UN General Assembly in December 2008 adopted a resolution on the “recognition of sickle-cell anaemia as a public health problem,” and urged Member States and UN organizations to raise awareness of SCD on June 19 of each year.21 Despite the fact that the UN has called for global efforts “to bring the disease out of the shadows,” relatively little attention has been given to assessing the burden of SCD and how to reduce it in Africa, where about 85% of children with SCD are born.22 In 2010, the WHO Regional Office for Africa proposed a SCD strategy in official recognition of the fact that this disease is an important cause of child mortality in many African countries.23 Enough is already known to justify investment in public health SCD programs, such as those already in place for other conditions (e.g., HIV or malaria), for promoting widespread screening, health education, and treatment to prevent or manage SCD complications.

    SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT


    "Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi­ zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug­ gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."


    A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com­ bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per­ cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."

    "SICKLE-CELL ANEMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION


    Established  by the Black Panther party in 1971to test and create a cure for sickle-cell anemia ( a deadly blood disease that affects primarily Black Americans), the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation informs people about sickle-cell anemia and maintains a national advisory committee of doctors to research this crippling disease.


    In conjunction with the People’s Free Medical Research Health Clinics the Sickle -Cell  Anemia Research Foundation to date has tested nearly half a million people throughout the country in the last three years.


    While more research  is needed to discover treatment and a cure for the disease, people must first be informed about it and tested to see if they have it or its side effects. To accomplish this, the Sickle -Cell Anemia Research Foundation publishes and disseminates brochures and other printed materials with facts about sickle-cell anemia." HUEY P. NEWTON "The Black Panther Party Service to the People Programs 


    Sickle cell anemia (sickle cell disease) is a disorder of the blood caused by an inherited abnormal hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein within the red blood cells). The abnormal hemoglobin causes distorted (sickled) red blood cells. The sickled red blood cells are fragile and prone to rupture. When the number of red blood cells decreases from rupture (hemolysis), anemia is the result. This condition is referred to as sickle cell anemia. The irregular sickled cells can also block blood vessels causing tissue and organ damage and pain.

    "The SAFE Program also aims to unite Black and poor communities by actively recruiting and hiring a number of our youth to help implement these much-needed services. Both drivers and escorts will be recruited from among the young and unemployed in our community, a strategythat at the same time will cut down the number of youth who would consider snatching a pocket­ book just to get a little change. In addition, drivers and escorts will be given extensive training in their respective fields, with both groups receiving inten­sive safety and FIRST-aid instruction.


    State, federal, and local funding of the SAFE Program will also mean addi­tional transportation-at least five vans with a seating capacity of twelve per­ sons each, plus the hiring ofa full-time program director and assistants. All totaled, the proposed annual budget for the SAFE Program comes to slightly less than two hundred thousand dollars ($195,530).


    E orts to acquire funds for the SAFE Program have not yet been success­ful. A formal proposal has been presented before Oakland Model Cities, a fed­erally funded poverty program, but that agency has made no commitment. A portion of Oakland's $4.5 million in revenue-sharing funds has been suggested for the SAFE Program, but the city administrators have been typically mum. Complete and adequate funding for the SAFE Program was, in fact, an integral part ofthe Seale-Brown Fourteen-Point Program to Rebuild Oakland in the 1973 campaign and, far from being abandoned, it will be included in initiatives and referendums.


    The SAFE funding proposal, like the program itself, is an argument for our protection instead of our abuse by public service agencies, which theoreti­ cally function on our behalf. SAFE is a simple but basic program designed to help and secure the lives of a very important yet often forgotten segment of our communities: the older people." HUEY P. NEWTON

    What exactly is the Spiritual stance of the Black Panther Party? THE SON OF MAN TEMPLE was created by Huey P. Newton which had a purpose in the spiritual  lives of the Panthers through the acceptance of all, but mandated no religious preference. It is stated as follows by Huey in the “STATEMENT OF PURPOSE”


    “We have always hoped that we could establish a place in our community where hundreds of ideas could grow and flourish, where people could feel free to say and do the things that seemed most natural to them.  The Son of Man Temple was created for that purpose, to serve in humankind’s development.


    However, the place in which we come together to espresso our humanity is not a church in the most traditional sense.  We do not practice a religion; we are not Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Moslem. We do not honor one God or one reverend.  This does not mean that we negate any religion; we all have differing philosophies and jews of our world.  We are all part of everything and it is a part of each of us.


    Our belief is that every human being has the right to be free.  We can all agree that we are not.  Therefore, we come together to express our agreement on the belief every Sunday at the Son of Man Temple.  It is a place where we can come to discover and learn.  If we begin the week with this kind of unity and understanding, we can carry through each day our concern and an enthusiastic felling about our survival and our freedom.   


     The ways in which we express this agreement about our desire to break away from our common problems—oppression—may differ.  Some of us might sing or dance about it, some of us might play music about it, or some of us might speak about various aspects of our problem. It does not matter what we do if it is done with sincerity and in our people’s interest."

    Tonight we will expound on how to make learning how to service the people our top priority. there is too much miseducation in the system for it not to be a signal to the people that the sure racists attitudes of this country will get a whole lot more than the bombing of the TWIN TOWERS.


    “SURVIVAL PENDING REVOLUTION


    INTER COMMUNAL YOUTH INSTITUTE


     The Inter-communal Youth Institute was established in January 1971 by the Black Panther Party.  The institute was initiated in direct response to the public school system to educate Black and poor youth has caused generation after generation of our people to be inadequately  prepared to participate and survive in our highly technological society.  In order to beg in to break this seemingly endless cycle of oppression.  the Black Panther Party established the Youth Institute.  Our plan is to provide an example in the education of Black children and to guide our children toward becoming fully capable of analyzing the problems they will face and to develop  creative solutions to deal with them.” HUEY P.

    "The threat to American apartheid led by Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the ‘60s initiated a great democratic awakening, especially among young Black People.  This awakening was the de-nigerization of BlackPeople —the process of turning sacred, intimidated, helpless folk into bold, brave hopeful people willing to live and die for Black freedom.  


    The Black Panther Party was the most advanced organized effort to exemplify this awakening. In other words, it was the highest from of deniggerization in niggerized America. The Black Panther Party was the greatest threat to american apartheid because it was indigenous in composition, interracial in strategies and tactics, and international invasion and analysis.  It was indigenous in  that it spoke to the needs and hope of the local community, as can be seen in the historic Survival Program of the party.  It combined bread-and-butter issues of everyday people with democratic empowerment in the face of issues of everyday people with deep democratic empowerment in the face of an oppressive status quo.  It  was interracial in that it remained open ot stratigic alliances and tactical coalations with progressive brown, red, yellow and white activists.   And it was international in that it understood American apartheid in light of anti-imperial struggles around the world, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.  the revolutionary politics of the Black Panther Party linked  the catastrophic conditions of local Black communities (with the disgraceful school systems, unavailable health and childcare, high levels of unemployment and underemployment, escalating rates of imprisonment, and pervasive from of self-hatred and self-destruction) to economic inequality in America and colonial or neocolonial realities in the capitalist world system. Needless to say this great awakening was too much for the american establishment." West
