In this episode we begin by discussing some of the international news stories of the week, such as Saudi Arabia and Iran committing to a path towards re-establishing diplomatic ties through the negotiations held in Beijing with the help of China; the 10 year anniversary of the passing of Hugo Chavez, who took on the mantle of leading the Bolivarian Revolution along with his people; the recent US-Cuba Normalization conference held at Fordham University March 10-11; the upcoming Call to Action on March 15+16 to call the White House incessantly to demand Cuba be removed from the State Sponsor of Terrorism List; the upcoming rally and demonstration/march in DC on March 18th....along with a few other stories. We then transition to discussing the recent censorship of Black Power Media, an independent media coalition of incredible organizers, historians, educators and activists who were given a vague conclusion that they "engaged in election misinformation" leading to a 7-day post ban, and then told this was 1 of 3 strikes before their entire account is removed. Dr. Jared Ball was on BreakThrough News with Eugene Puryear and Rania Khalek talking about it and it struck a cord with me, so wanted to show love to the Comrade Jared Ball and all the folks at BPM, but also connect it to the confusion, lack of revolutionary awareness, consciousness, and history that the Western, Euro-Amerikan and European Left is ignorant of or intentionally ignoring.
Let me know what you think!
ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
