Revolutionary Greetings Sisters & brothers! It is I your comrade in struggle brother Malik reporting in from the Texas Gulag. In 2018 the campaign to End Prison Slavery will be thrust onto the national stage.
I have been contemplating heavily in respect to the significance of our movement and comparing what we prisoners in Amerika are going through in comparison with human beings in Libya who are actually being auctioned off as Real Life Slaves!!
The question presents itself:
How can we—people who claim to be dedicated Human and Civil Rights Activists—ignore the tragedy of a modern day slave trade happening right before our eyes?
We Can’t Ignore It!!
We can’t be silent and we are going to have to take steps to stop it. NOW!! Not tomorrow.
I’ve been asking myself, how did this happen?
Why are we so apprehensive and hesitant to call-out Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton? Imperialism and the greed for fossil fuels and world domination led to the murder of Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi. Hillary Clinton laughed on National TV and made a joke about Gaddafi being hacked to death by American backed murderers!!
Do any of you remember Hillary’s insensitive remarks?? I do! She said: “We came, we saw, he died.”
Muamar Gaddafi was a friend to Black People. To Hillary black people especially young black males are nothing more than ‘Super Predators.’
But neither ‘good brother’ Barack or “sister” Hillary are in the White House any more.
No! We have a white supremacist Con-Man in the White House and Donald Trump is not going to do a damn thing about our beautiful African sisters and brothers being sold as slaves in Libya!
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley isn’t going to say or do nothing! Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is not going to intervene. And don’t think for one minute that the ‘Closet Racist’ Mike Pompeo the Director of the CIA is going to lose any sleep over the open air slave markets in Tripoli.
It is my contention that Imperialism has allowed ‘legalized’ prison slavery to spread throughout Amerika and it has ushered in a Modern Day Slave Trade in Libya. I say we must combat this with Socialism/Communism and come to grips with these dialectical FACTS:
1) The sole purpose of slavery and slavery and fascism is to create wealth for the middle and upper class slave traders!
2) If the economic incentive associated with slavery and/or racism were to be eliminated by abolishing the exploitative class structure, slavery and/or racism would disappear!!
In other words, when we smash capitalism/imperialism, we open the door to creating a true egalitarian environment for all humanity!
Lastly, 3) Progressive persyns and revolutionaries throughout the world should unite in order to overthrow Imperialism.
When we hear the slogan:
Workers of the World Unite, it should serve as a battle cry for all likeminded comrades and allies in struggle.
The Democratic and Republican Political Parties in Amerika have continued to ignore the crimes against humanity which are taking place right now in Libya!
We have the Neo-Liberals Obama and Clinton who created this mess.
Then, we have the neo-conservatives and alt-right fascists who support Trump and they certainly are not going to fix the problem.
So what good are these corrupt money hangry political parties??
That’s the key—they aren’t any good for any of us.
In 2018 it’s time for change! Socialists and Anarchists who are committed Abolitionists must take an Active Role in calling out the US Government!!
These Hypocrites, and I’m talking about Trump & Obama, encouraged Nigerian President Mohammadu Bahari to destroy Boko Haram but now that innocent Nigerians are being forced into slavery in Libya, the state department sits on their damn hands!!
You don’t like what I’m saying President Trump??!
Well, shut me up!
Get up off your Ass and do something meaningful to stop the sale of our African sisters and brothers!
Stop ignoring the Humyn Rights disaster in Libya!
Abolish Slavery NOW!
Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win, All Power to the People.
