American policy is responsible for ISIS. Ferguson violence alerts world. Is Garvey's spirit alive in Ferguson?
Zafar Bangash, Gloria La Riva, Norman Otis Richmond
ISIS is a scam, just like the Syrian "chemical weapons" of last year. The same person is responsible for both of these: Saudi Prince Bandar Bin Sultan.
The purpose is the same as last year's WMD hoax: to clear a path for U.S. entry into Syria.
Zafar Bangash explains how the U.S., Turkey, and Gulf monarchs have nurtured ISIS from the very beginning as their contra force against Syria.
Gloria La Riva reports on the growing movement sparked by the people's rejection of the police shooting to death a peaceful Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. She describes similar police shootings in other cities.
The militarized police rained rubber bullets on many people, including Gloria, who were marching in a legal, peaceful protest.
The people's demands are: Arrest murdering police officer Gary Wilson; Change the police force; Force the resignation of the DA prosecutor and of the police chief.
Gloria states that the Militarized Police show racism and a disdain for the poor, that those in power focus on dividing and conquering the working class. She derides the power system: Pentagon giving weapons to local police and the FBI countering People's movements with a coordinated (and financed by taxpayers) plan.
Norman Otis Richmond celebrates the great African Internationalist Marcus Garvey on the 100th anniversary of his Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) in Jamaica, which he duplicated in NYC, and which became the largest mass movement of African people in the world.
Richmond traces Garvey's influence and visits in Canada.
Richmond describes Garvey's 22 lessons for new black leadership after his death, but claims that Garvey's most significant contribution was his oratory skills to deliver his message. Garvey founded Negro World, the most read newspaper around the world, and ran The Daily newspaper for three years.
Malcolm X's father distributed Garvey's newspapers, and Malcolm's mother educated her children with them -- planting the seed for the next greatest African American organizer.

Ferguson: A Movement is Starting... ICC: Giving the West what it wants
Norman Otis Richmond, Tiphaine Dickson
Guest Richard Williams was scheduled to appear on the program today, but he is doing his civic duty and attending the demonstrations in Ferguson, for which we are pleased.
We are joined by Norman Otis Richmond, veteran of the struggle against racism on this continent. From the vortex of activism over Ferguson he praises Richard Williams' new book 'Black and White, The Way I See It.' Otis Richmond reminds us that Missouri had a long history of legal segregation.
Richmond makes clear that Black leaders have to avoid the role of "buffer" for the White power structure of state and federal governments and that is time to resume the struggle for affirmative action to correct injustice that began with slavery.
Phil interviews Tiphaine Dickson, international lawyer, who wrote the introduction to the new book by Barry Collins, "Rwanda: 1994: The Myth of the Akazu Genocide Conspiracy and its Consequences."
Dickson states that it would be futile for the Palestinian Authority to try and make a case before the ICC. She claims the obvious - that no Israeli authority would be convicted at the ICC.
Dickson shows how and why ICC trials are one-sided anti-politics with no historical methodology. The ICC represents only one side of the equation, while falsely claiming to be representing the African People. Dickson notes the questionable claims of "crimes against humanity" unfairly leveled against murdered Libyan Moammar El-Gadhafi and also Laurent Gbagoom ex-president of Cote d'Ivoire.

Black History Month with Norman Otis Richmond.
Norman Otis Richmond, Joel Richardson
This Black History Month, Phil begins with the racist and war-like politics of the Superbowl. Phil goes on to describe the American Crusade Against Lynching organized in the USA supported by WEB Dubois, Paul Roberson, and Albert Einstein. Writer Norman Otis Richmond is interviewed about his recent article, "Negro History Week to African Liberation Month." His view is that Black History Month has been hijacked by the black petit-bourgeoisie, banks and hamburger chains to sanitize it rather than promote black liberation fighters.
Phil talks to Joel Richardson, artist and film-maker about his new work, "The Brock Johnson Story", whose trailer includes, "Brock's life is turned upside down and inside out when his neighbourhood cocaine dealer (the same dealer as the Mayor) gives him a tip on a story that could change his life... and end the life of his dealer." Does this sound like a spoof of a certain major Canadian city?
