Some days ago we saw a sunset that turned the robe of heaven a bright violet. Today it is a very hard red that the eye encounters. - Frantz Fanon, Towards the African Revolution
Frantz Fanon, the Caribbean philosopher and revolutionary who joined the Algerian Revolution, died of leukaemia at the age of 36 on the 6th of December 1961. His last book, The Wretched of the Earth, was published soon after his death and so we are fifty years on from both Fanon and the first major attempt to think through the limits of newly independent Africa.

In the aftermath of the earthquake, we all want to alleviate the conditions & suffering of African people in Haiti. But what can we do to make a real difference?
Uhuru Solidarity Movement | 01.17.2010
In the wake of the devastation following the 7.0 earthquake on January 12, 2010, the African People’s Solidarity Committee, a white organization working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party, expresses our deepest solidarity with African people in Haiti.
With at least 50,000 dead, hundreds of thousands injured and more than 3.5 million homeless, the conditions on the island have been described as unimaginable. With relief efforts moving slowly and the threat of mass starvation mounting, U.S. military occupation forces are being sent in, raising the specter of the brutal treatment of African people in New Orleans following the 2005 Hurricane Katrina.
U.S. president Barack Obama has promised a massive U.S. relief effort with a pledge of $100 million to be sent to Haiti as an outpouring of support comes in from throughout the U.S. and around the world. All major media sources have sent reporters to the country’s capital, Port-au-Prince.

For those who want to see more than the 2-3 minute mainstream television reports of Israel's wholesale massacres and massive destruction in Gaza than what the corporate mainstream American/Western broadcast TV national news shows reveal...

Watch al-Jazeera in English
for extensive television/video coverage of the Zionist war machine's wholesale atrocities in Gaza.
This is especially what people in the Middle East get to see every day that we usually don't, especially in the U.S..
