Free Palestine!!
 
Palestine Solidarity Activists in Brighton have been picketing the EcoStream/SodaStream shop which sells produce from Israel's illegal settlements for the last 18 months since it opened. The campaign will continue until they pack up and quit Brighton in the same way that the Ahava shop closed in London when the Zionist propaganda chiefs realized that its presence was not only hated by a large section of the public but it was also continuing to lose vast amounts of cash.

As I have said before the only time Zionists speak in support of 'Palestinian Workers' is when it suits them; otherwise the IDF could shoot them all dead and the only mention it would get in the Jewish Chronicle would be "Board of Deputies denies Israeli involvement in Maale Adumim attack".  If the demonstration is not about the shop but about the continued existence of the state of Israel why were there no demonstrations to speak of in Brighton before the arrival of the Zionist propaganda shop? Israel has been around for some 66 years.

The Colour of Money: Colonialism and the Slave Trade.

"The British did not become slave traders because they were racist, they became slave traders because they used slaves for great profit in the Americas and devised a set of attitudes towards black people that justified what they had done. The real engine behind  the slave system was economics. Once it was established that the exploitation of black people was a base for expanding British wealth how could one argue that the great inferiority of black people was not built into the fundamental cultural and structural values of British society?"

Former Black Panther Party leader Marshall "Eddie" Conway was released after serving nearly 44 years in prison. Supporters describe Conway as one of the country’s longest-held political prisoners. He was convicted of killing a Baltimore police officer in 1970, for which he has always maintained his innocence.

Conway, 67, was freed from prison Tuesday after challenging his conviction in a 1970 shooting that killed Officer Donald Sager and injured another officer. Conway's case was one of dozens affected by a ruling in which Maryland's high court said verdicts before 1980 were invalid because of faulty jury instructions.

The shooting occurred at a time when federal and local authorities were infiltrating and disrupting the Black Panthers and other activist groups. At the time of the shooting, the FBI was also monitoring Conway’s actions as part of its counterintelligence program, COINTELPRO. Numerous groups have campaigned for years calling for his release, saying he never received a fair trial and was convicted largely on the basis of testimony from a jailhouse informant.

Conway said that during his trial, the Black Panther Party was being attacked, with many members being jailed. Supporters have said the Black Panthers were being monitored by group of federal and local law enforcement agents whose mission was to "neutralize" organizations deemed subversive.

"My case happened right in the middle of that" climate, Conway said.

Despite the fact he felt unfairly targeted, during his four decades in prison, Conway said, he was determined to continue to do positive work for the community.

Politically active in prison, Conway founded Friend of a Friend, a group that helps young men, often gang members, resolve conflicts, and published a memoir, "Marshall Law: The Life & Times of a Baltimore Black Panther."

Now free, he plans to dedicate the next stage of his life to community service.

"The whole time I have been incarcerated I have always been trying to continue to do the positive work that I joined the Black Panther Party to do. And that was to feed children, to help educate people, to help organize the community, to help build a better community," Conway said during a interview Wednesday with Marc Steiner on WEAA FM.
