Sudan’s New Challenges and Opportunities

“Most of these guns are used by civilian populations to hurt each other and for cattle rustling and many lives are lost in the process - that is the problem. So, now, after that incident, there is more dialogue so that we achieve peaceful disarmament. We are looking into ways and means to do that. Small arms are a big problem, but it is not just a Sudanese or a southern Sudanese problem; it is a regional problem. Civilians are armed in Uganda, in Kenya, in Ethiopia.” Pagan Amum, SPLM Secretary General         Full Story

“Our First National Hero Deserves Better”

“The consensus of those who were interviewed was that the international Black, African and other interested communities needed to actively encourage the Government of Jamaica to do more for the Garvey visual and intellectual legacies on the Island.” Devon Evans, Correspondents

Remembering Marcus Mosiah Garvey

“In remembering Marcus Mosiah Garvey, it must be admitted that he lacked business acumen and he also lacked honest and competent business associates.   His Black Star Line Enterprise was therefore doomed to failure.”  Valarie Dixon [Full Story]

Text Box: Developing The Infrastructure of The Voluntary and Community Sector

“The seeds for social exclusions of black and ethnic minority voluntary and community initiatives were planted during the 1970s and 80s by policy makers who did not seem to consider the consequences for posterity, by ignoring substantive calls from Black and ethnic minority leaderships to provide capacity building and infrastructural support towards an equitable Britain.”

Text Box: New Global Network for People of African Heritage

“The important lesson to learn from the slaving and colonising of African peoples is that it was an international and unified system, which enslaved and colonised the Africans.  And so, latter day peoples of African heritage need an equally strong international system, ensuring that they are in the vanguard of its leadership, to promote their development and prosperity worldwide.” Read full story

Text Box: War and Conflict

“We are all potential targets in the wars of the new century – wars often fought with low-tech weapons that in the hands of determined militants can bloody even the greatest military powers. The deadliest of those weapons is the suicide bomber. The world may have avoided a nuclear holocaust in the last century, but its appetite for war in pursuit of resources, national rights and religious beliefs shows no sign of waning.”

 – Reuters 2006

 

  “Now that the whole ship’s cargo  were confined together, it became absolutely pestilential. The closeness of the place, and the heat of the climate… almost suffocated us...The shrieks of the women, and the groans of the dying rendered it a scene of horror almost inconceivable...I began to hope that death would soon put an end to my miseries.”  - Olaudah Ecuiano, sold from Africa into New World Slavery at age 12.  [More]

Security of Activists in

A Changing World

 

“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” George Orwell ‘1984’ (1949)

 

Who controls the past ? Who controls the present ?

 

Activists must be matured in their approach in planning their security, while claiming and practising their rights as free citizens within a just, truthful and free society. Activists who believe in the preservation of our democratic way of life cannot be childish in their approach to personal security. In these days when every telephone call, e-mails and  snail mail are recorded and read by internal and foreign agents, those who believe in the preservation of a free and civilised society have a special duty to be vigilant.
