Acción Urgente - Juicio político a sindicalista costarricense
17 Apr 2006
El representante sindical y político Orlando Barrantes de Costa Rica, podría ser encarcelado injustamente. El pretexto serían presuntos delitos que se crearon deliberadamente en su contra a lo largo de cinco años, luego de la huelga en la región atlántica de diciembre de 2000. En realidad, con su prisión y sentencia se estaría criminalizando la protesta social y se le inhabilitaría políticamente. Junto a Barrantes, también está siendo procesado Iván Angulo, regidor municipal

Immigration Policy: Send Us Your Poor, They Will Wind Up in Iraq
17 Apr 2006
They are coming by the millions from all
over the world. Let them come here. Let
them find that there are not enough jobs.
They will find the military to be the last
resort when their welfare is cut off. And
let them acquire Gulf War Syndrom
(radiation sickness from uranium
munitions).! It works just fine in the
minds of the neo-cons.

the united states of africa
17 Apr 2006
I wanted to give you an update on the building of the United States of Africa I started back in 96 with Robert Wood - who together with me comprise The Wood Bros. Music group. We are still at: - but our NEW music is at:

Our mission remains the same, to unite Africa as one nation and thus unite the world, in uniting Africa.

God willing.

* take a look at the Current site for the movement at:

The United States of Africa - Please forward to anyone who has cried a tear for Africa and wants to see a change.

"There are no words to describe what I feel about the possibility of the achievement of The United States of Africa.

The applause of the entire globe could not give this cause justice, and justice is what this cause will bring. I am sure that the US of Africa will mean the extinction of poverty and the promotion of world Unity. I know the day will come when its constitution is signed. It will be signed not with greed and power in mind, but instead with love and unity.

My prayers and deepest salutations are with you all." – Jared

While we understand the beginning of the USA for USAfrica may have an unusual genesis, the heart felt reasons behind the movement are unmistakable, and the need for a United States of Africa, is Undeniable.

No continent in the world is better positioned than Africa, ( a United Africa ) to contribute to the welfare of Mankind over the next thousand years. As an ABC Night Line reporter covering Africa noted, "Africa is 98% virtually the same as it was a thousand years ago." An incredible vast land of undeveloped potential both for it's people and the world.

In a United States of Africa, a citizen could freely travel from Gambia to South Africa to Algeria or anywhere on the continent to seek education, opportunity, commerce or the simple pleasure of tourist travel within their vast country.

A common African currency much like the EU model affords the ability to buy and sell throughout the continent with a reliable backed currency. A transcontinental citizenship throughout Africa will one day become the envy of the free world.

Much of Africa's third world debt could be relived if freedom and security of capitalism were able to thrive in any African country - state from taxes paid by companies involved in business in any African location. An immediate positive effect would arise from local, municipal and federal levels throughout Africa.

Any and all of these possibilities can only arise from what can take place in a United States of Africa. With national borders being no more restrictive than state borders, allowing transcontinental travel, commerce and opportunity for all African citizens.

A United States of Africa with the largest usable coastline in the world could one day be the country that enriches all of Mankind, feeds the world, heals the world, teaches the world and balances the world.

There is so much more involved and the USA for USAfrica is not naive to the many levels that must be addressed, our point is the dialogue must begin at once, in the media, on the airwaves, in discussions and editorials.

The concept of a United States of Africa must immediately be brought into public debate worldwide and among Africans themselves.

Yours in peace and a United Africa,

Mark Wood
