Eugene Debs predicted what today’s big problem would be 94 years ago: “The class which has the power to rob upon a large scale has also the power to control the government and legalize their robbery.”
“A basic principle of modern state capitalism is that cost and risks are socialized to the extent possible, while profit is privatized.”
“The worst illiterate is the political illiterate. He hears nothing, sees nothing, takes no part in political life. He doesn’t seem to know that the cost of living, the price of beans, of flour, of rent, of medicines, all depend on political decisions. He even prides himself on his political ignorance, sticks out his chest and says he hates politics. He doesn’t know, the imbecile, that from his political nonparticipation comes the prostitute, the abandoned child, the robber and, worst of all, corrupt officials, the lackeys of exploitative multinational corporations.”
~ Bertolt Brecht

Africa’s great leader, Nelson Mandela also wrote in his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, in a freedom struggle there are two types of personalities: “Those who succumbed to slavery and those who are willing to suffer to be free.”
We have started breaking the conspiracy of silence and it is the right time to coordinate our resources, both human and material, to dismantle Meles Zenawi’s apartheid and brutal regime. As one U.N. Special Rapporteur promised few months ago, the lackey of exploitative multinational corporations, Meles Zenawi, is now under the radar of the international community. We don’t let him legalize his robbery. We say no to evictions and displacements of the indigenous people – land grabbing.
“Law is a changing instrument.”
Zenawi has written a funny law. If you oppose his exploitative policies or write critically against his oppressive regime you are a “Terrorist”. Very funny indeed!!!
Co-ordination worked and the country that fiercely fought against apartheid and defeated it, South Africa, refused to host Meles Zenawi as a guest speaker in its university. A great blow to an egocentric and autocratic dictator!!! A great victory for the people!!! Defeat after defeat both in front of his bosses in Washington and in front of the African people. The guy started frustrating and became seriously sick. I don’t care whether he dies or lives. I am interested to kill his apartheid and racist regime.
