Here they go supporting INSURRECTIONISTS (for OIL and Against African Unity)
To Obama, the Libyan leader was slightly more conciliatory: "If you had found them taking over American cities with armed force, tell me what you would do."
Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, who was the 2009 Chairperson of the African Union (AU), has advanced the idea of a United States of Africa at two regional African summits: in June 2007 in Conakry, Guinea, and
again in February 2009 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Gaddafi had previously pushed for the creation of the African Union at a summit in Lomé, Togo, in 2000. Having since described the AU as a failure, Gaddafi has asserted that only a true
pan-African state can provide stability and wealth to Africa.
The "United States of Africa" was mentioned first by Marcus Garvey in his poem 'Hail, United States of Africa' in 1924. Garvey's ideas deeply influenced the birth of the Pan-Africanist movement which culminated in 1945 with the Fifth Pan-African Congress in Manchester, United Kingdom, attended by W. E. B. Du Bois, Patrice Lumumba, George Padmore, Jomo Kenyatta, and Kwame Nkrumah. Later, Nkrumah and Haile Selassie (among many others) took the idea forward to form the 37 nation Organisation of African Unity, the forerunner of today's African Union.
The idea of a multinational unifying African state is seen by the French publication Le Monde diplomatique as a successor to the medieval African empires: the Ethiopian Empire, the Ghana Empire, the Mali Empire, the Songhai Empire, the Benin Empire, the Kanem Empire, and other historic nation states
I alsot learned from an exile of Apartheid who lives in our complex that Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi helped the South African ANC Party in the early days of their struggle against Apartheid.
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili gets a warm welcome everywhere he goes to the USA odd for someone who just three years ago gave the order that led to the death of hundreds of civilians in the republic of South Ossetia.
Looks like Libyan leader was not crazy but right he said he was fighting al-Qaeda. Check this video out.
Netanyahu is actually pointing his finger at Israel when he said "Iran is the most irresponsible force in the world. . . . We are dealing with a regime that violates every resolution and has no respect
for international standards," the Israeli premier said.
In the above quote Netanyahu should replace Iran and say Israel. His statement is pointing his finger at himself and Israel's political policies. In psychology the Israeli PM's above statement is called projection. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4190903,00.html
THERE ARE 17 UNION LOCKOUTS IN THE US - UNION BUSTING PLUS WISCONSIN
Right now in Sandusky, workers from the U.S. Tsubaki plant are standing in the cold - locked out of the factory for over a year. A plant that some of them have worked in for 30 years or more.Â
We feel so passionately for the plight of these courageous and resilient people that we wanted to share their story with you: A portrait of the plight of the American Worker. The story of the Tsubaki workers is the story of far too many people in our great nation.
Please pledge your support of these workers by signing petition at www.Kucinich.us/Solidarity
People who gave 20, 30 or some even 40 years to a company and a plant are standing on the sidewalk, worried about feeding their families, wondering if they will have any security in retirement. Tsubaki locked them out, ended contract talks and chained the door, not because these workers were asking for outrageous pay or benefit increases, but because what they really want is to break the union. And if they do, worker protections in this country will fall like dominoes.Understand what is happening at the Tsubaki plant, and what's at stake here, because your workplace could be next.
Today, the NLRB ruled that Tsubaki had unfairly locked out its workers and demanded that the company come to the bargaining table. And the struggle continues. There are 16 lockouts in the United States that have not been resolved, this is one of them. It is urgent that we support the just cause of workers.
Helping these workers - and working people everywhere - is why I ran for Congress and why I want to stay in Congress. Knowing what's happening in Sandusky, and being part of it, should be the
litmus test for people who say they are pro-labor.
Watch the video, join the fight, and when a politician asks you for your vote, ask what they've done for the workers at Tsubaki.
UNITED STATES OF AFRICA USA
Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, who was the 2009 Chairperson of the African Union (AU), has advanced the idea of a United States of Africa at two regional African summits: in June 2007 in Conakry, Guinea, and again in February 2009 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Gaddafi had previously pushed for the creation of the African Union at a summit in Lomé, Togo, in 2000. Having since described the AU as a failure, Gaddafi has asserted that only a true pan-African state can provide stability and wealth to Africa.
The United States of Africa is a proposed name for the concept of a federation of some or all of the 53 sovereign states of Africa. The United States of Africa, if formed using that name, would share the
abbreviation "U.S.A." with the United States of America.
A number of senior AU members also support the proposed federation, believing that it could bring peace to a 'new' Africa. Alpha Oumar Konaré, former President of Mali and former Chairperson of the African Union Commission, spoke in favour of the concept at the commemoration of Africa Day, on May 25, 2006
