A bonus 7” record came with my pre-order of Lese Majesty…here’s the bonus track from that record. It very well could have been on the album but giving it it’s own 7” is maybe even cooler. Enjoy.

Hamas and The US Legal System

David Cole reviews the report by Human Rights Watch 

Illusion of Justice
Human Rights Abuses in US Terrorism Prosecutions

I concluded that the US government can punish you for trying to help people in Gaza and The West Bank. Draw your own conclusions.

Taken From The New Yorker  Magazine :Terror Prosecutions and Muslim-Americans

Five former employees and board members of what was once the largest Muslim charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation, are currently serving sentences of up to sixty-five years in prison—longer than many sentences for murder—for providing “material support” to Hamas. The prosecution offered no evidence that the charity ever supported any violence, let alone terrorist violence. It did not even claim that the charity provided direct material support to Hamas. Instead, the government argued that funds distributed to charities in the West Bank and used for peaceful, charitable purposes amounted to aiding Hamas because these charities were fronts for Hamas—even though the government had never designated them as such and had itself provided aid to some.

Re-reading the seminal 1992 article by Mark Sinker on Afrofuturism

Part of the story of black music has been this - that losing everything except basic dignity and decency is a potentially survivable disaster. The other part is that staying true to the best in yourself may mean talking in dark, crazed, visionary tongues for a season.

The Case for Sanctions Against Israel ebook available for free from Verso

Clean and affordable water is the basis of life. Skyrocketing water prices, unsafe supply, failing infrastructure — these problems fall disproportionately on the most vulnerable among us. This is why public institutions, not private corporations, must lead the development of water systems and delivery. The World Bank Group is uniquely positioned to increase access to clean water for the billions who need it. Instead of using its position to line the pockets of water companies, it should support what is most needed: affordable and clean — and public — water for all.

The symbolic meaning of the Raven

The symbolic meaning of the Raven in Native American Indian lore describes the raven as a creature of metamorphosis, and symbolizes change/transformation.
In some tribes, the Raven is considered a trickster because of its transforming/changing attributes.
