Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We feature our regular PANW reports with dispatches dealing with the recently defeated military coup in Burkina Faso where domestic and international pressure forced the presidential security regiment to relinquish power after one week when the elite unit allied with ousted dictator Blaise Compaore attempted to derail elections scheduled for October and to maintain the existence of the dreaded apparatus; there is reportedly no end in sight to the flood of migrants into Europe from the Middle East, Africa and Asia while the European Union states remain divided over how to deal with the crisis stemming from imperialist wars of regime-change and the global economic crisis; there have been more children killed in Yemen due to the United States supported war against the people than in any other country worldwide; and the police in Wilmington, Delaware have shot dead a disabled African American man in a wheelchair. The second and third hours continues the examination of race relations in the U.S. and internationally with an audio documentary on the making of the Autobiography of Malcolm X and another archived file on the history of the human rights act in Australia. The final segment presents audio files surrounding the 70th summit of the United Nations General Assembly examining the humanitarian situaiton around Lake Chad and reports on the status of the fight against Ebola and other infectious diseases.
