SummaryOn December 14, 2012 a 35-year-old African political activist died in a German city near Frankfurt. A victim of white left feminist ideology, his death was officially recorded as suicide. However, an investigation of the circumstances leading to his death reveals he was just another victim of colonial domination, physical and ideological. Unia Leti and Akua Leti, two members of the Uhuru Movement, friends and allies of the dead victim will discuss his death and the ideological pressures facing Africans living in Germany. The current crisis of imperialism that is also reflected in the economic instability of the primary capitalist countries throughout the world is, within the U.S., being discussed as a horrible confrontation of a fiscal cliff that promises doom and despair for Africans and others lest something drastic is done to avoid it. Glen Ford, Executive Editor of Black Agenda Report and the vice chairman of the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations will provide an analysis that will expose the real reason for the manufactured fiscal crisis and its implication for the well-being of the people.
