Usually, I am very reluctant to criticize the dead. However, since the corporate media seem so fervent in their desire to glorify Ronald Reagan and will probably do so for weeks, if not months, I think an alternative perspective is only fair.
I have been at numerous anti war demonstrations with our Palestinian and other Islamic brothers and I have been ashamed by ignorance of the beautiful Arabic language. So I have learned some basic phrases, which I am posting here for the community's benefit. Learn Arabic - it's fun!
We will resist the DNC with all of our might. We will make the delegates realize we do not want them in our fair city. We will refuse to recognize the State and we will continue to fight against the crook that is nominated. We will not ask for freedom, we will demand it. In order to extend our base of support we have added a link to donate money to the Bl(A)ck Tea Society on our website. This will allow even those who cannot make the journey to Boston this summer to support us in demonstrating our dissent. This money will allow us to organize a convergence center and autonomous zone; host a free open-air bazaar and concert; and fund the legal defense of our comrades arrested by police repression during the convention. Your support is deeply needed and appreciated.
