♥ Happyyyyy 80th Birthday, Willie ♥






















We are the same. There is no difference anywhere in the world. People are people. They laugh, cry, feel and love, and music seems to be the commons denomination that brings us all together.
Music cuts through all boundaries and goes right to the soul.

A Desperate Situation at Guantánamo: Over 130 Prisoners on Hunger Strike, Dozens Being Force Fed

 
A Desperate Situation at Guantánamo: Over 130 Prisoners on Hunger Strike, Dozens Being Force Fed

 Published on Apr 29, 2013

Democracy Now! - The U.S. military has acknowledged for the first time the number of prisoners on hunger strike at the military prison has topped 100. About a fifth of the hunger strikers are now being forced fed. Lawyers for the prisoners say more than 130 men are taking part in the hunger strike, which began in February. One of the hunger strikers is a Yemeni man named Samir Naji al Hasan Moqbel. In a letter published in the New York Times, he wrote: "Denying ourselves food and risking death every day is the choice we have made. I just hope that because of the pain we are suffering, the eyes of the world will once again look to Guantánamo before it is too late." We speak to attorney Carlos Warner who represents 11 prisoners at Guantánamo. He spoke to one of them on Friday. "Unfortunately, they are held because the president has no political will to end Guantánamo," Warner says. "The president has the authority to transfer individuals if he believes that it's in the interest of the United States. He doesn't have the political will to do so because 166 men in Guantánamo don't have much pull in the United States. But the average American on the street does not understand that half of these men, 86 of the men, are cleared
for release."

Even when I sleep
the land comes near me
in my dream.
I smuggle its wild thyme
between exiles
I sing its stones
I will even sweat blood
from my veins
to drink its news
so the land comes near me
leaves a stone of love with me
to defend it
and defend me

Richie Havens Performs "Freedom"
at 2003 Worldwide Protest Against the Iraq War 

Published on Apr 23, 2013

To mark the passing of legendary protest singer Richie Havens, Democracy Now! has posted video of his performance of "Freedom" at the massive demonstration against the Iraq War, which took place in New York City as millions filled the streets around the world on Feb. 15, 2003.

You may recall the song from Havens' performance at Woodstock, where he was the first act to take the stage,
and did so quite dramatically.
After a nearly 50-year career, Havens died Monday at age 72
in his New Jersey home after a sudden heart attack.

Release Mumia Now! Rally and March April 24

April 24th marks the 59th birthday of internationally acclaimed journalist and political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has spent 30 years on death row for a crime he didn't commit.
Last year his death sentence was commuted to life in prison,
but we are clear -- life in prison is not justice.
Mumia is innocent.
We want his immediate release.

I Belong There

I Belong There

I belong there. I have many memories.
I was born as everyone is born.
I have a mother, a house with many windows, brothers, friends,
and a prison cell with a chilly window!
I have a wave snatched by seagulls, a panorama of my own.
I have a saturated meadow. In the deep horizon of my word,
I have a moon, a bird's sustenance, and an immortal olive tree.
I have lived on the land long before swords turned man
into prey.
I belong there. When heaven mourns for her mother,
I return heaven to her mother.
And I cry so that a returning cloud might carry my tears.
To break the rules, I have learned all the words needed
for a trial by blood.
I have learned and dismantled all the words in order to draw
from them a single word:
Home.
