15-year-old tells establishment to stick-it

A 15-year-old British student gives a speech about his generation, solidarity and social justice:





"They can't stop us demonstrating, they can't stop us fighting back, and how ever much they try to imprison us in the streets of London, those are our streets. We will always be there to demonstrate, we will always be there to fight... We are no longer that generation that doesn't care, we are no longer that generation to sit back and take whatever they give us. We are now the generation at the heart of the fight back."  (via RodneyOwenMcCarthy)

On November 9, the U.S. Third Circuit Court in Philadelphia will hear oral arguments concerning whether Mumia Abu-Jamal, a black journalist and political prisoner who has been on death row for 28 years, should be executed or given a new sentencing trial. If the court rules against Mumia he could soon be executed. According to lead attorney, Robert R. Bryan, Mumia is now "in the greatest danger since his 1981 arrest."
 

Ready to Rock?

The single biggest problem that plagues humanity, robbing people of their rights and freedom, is our debt money system. Unending interest payments, compounding generation upon generation, have turned "we the people" into indentured economic slaves of the rich. You know the truth, and millions of Canadians are also starting to wake up and figure it out, but they don't know what to do about it.
