|Broadcast Title||THE PEOPLE ARE GETTING READY...|
On todays show we will feature interviews of the leadership being interviewed on PressTV Network discussing recent events in the United States.
We will start with a Christmas Eve dialogue between Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African People's Socialist Party and the African Socialist International and Frederick Peterson -a Congressional Defense Policy Advisor - discussing the recent Police shooting of Antonio Martin, an 18 year old African in Berkeley, Missouri.
The shooting occurred just a few miles away from Ferguson, Missouri - where on August 9th, 2014 Michael Brown an 18 year old unarmed African was shot several times by Cop Darren Wilson. Brown's death was the catalyst for a on-going campaign of African resistance in Missouri and across the world. On the evening of Monday November 24, 2014, St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced that there would be no grand jury indictment in the murder of Michael Brown, an 18 year old unarmed by Ferguson cop Darren Wilson. The resistance spread through 170 cities in the United States and hundreds of other cities in the world.
As the non indictments of killer cops have continued to come down from Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY and others, it is clear that the People are not going to let their murders deaths go unchallenged.
Berkeley Missouri, Mayor Theodore Hoskins - said at the press conference on the police murder of Antonio Martin - That Berkeley is not Ferguson. We will hear Chimurenga Waller, Director of Recruitment and Membership, of the African People's Socialist Party dissect that statement.
We will also hear from Kobina Bantushango of the African People's Socialist Party - discussing the shooting of Antonia Martin and the importance of community control of police in the African community.
