(en) US, Turning the Tide - issue July August '05 Journal of Anti-Racist Action*

Date Sat, 16 Jul 2005 15:48:02 +0300

The new issue of "Turning the Tide: Journal of Anti-Racist Action, Research
& Education," Volume 18 Number 3, is now available. The newsprint tabloid,
produced by Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles/People Against Racist Terror
(ARA-LA/PART) features a piece by Silas Weatherby of Oakland on Grand Jury
witch-hunts and FBI repression against activists and communities in
California, and meditations on the contradictions between
indigenous/Mexicano heritage and anti-immigrant, anti-Mexican vigilantes in
"The Battle of Baldwin Park: Land, Memory, Genocide and Denial," by
Chicomozteca (with a graphic by Judith Baca, whose art installation in
Baldwin Park, CA has been the target of repeated provocations by the racist
"State Our State" group, supported by the Minutemen and open white
supremacists like Stormfront and the National Vanguard).

"When They Say 'Aid,' They Mean 'Raid'," an analysis of the British
proposal for aid to Africa by Mumia Abu-Jamal (political prisoner on Death
Row in Pennsylvania) is echoed by "Debt Schemes: Imperialist Aims of the
G-8 Debt Relief Maneuver," by Kali Akuno of the Malcolm X Grassroots
Movement, which looks at efforts by the US and Britain to redivide the
spoils of Africa in order to preserve US hegemony, satisfy EU demands for
its own profit realization, and contain Chinese expansion. Canadian analyst
Asad Osmi looks at the economic and military limits and potential fall of
the US Empire, in "The Bigger They Come, the Harder They Fall."

Attorney Jan Susler contributes a piece on Puerto Rican political prisoner
Oscar Lopez Rivera, recently transferred (along with Leonard Peltier) to a
prison in Terre Haute, IN. A new generation of Puerto Rican struggle,
inspired by the political prisoners and POWs, is represented by poetry on
the gentrification of Chicago by Janeida Rivera, a teen spoken-word artist
associated with the Juan Antonio Corretjer Puerto Rican Cultural Center.

Editor Michael Novick of ARA-LA/PART authors "PART's Perspective: End the
War in Iraq -- Bring the War Home!" which looks at what it will take to
save humanity and the planet by bringing down the US Empire. Anti-Racist
Action Toronto reports on the upcoming Youth Against Hate/ARA Network
International Gathering, scheduled for their city over the weekend of
August 5-7. The issue also includes coverage of the detention and attempted
deportation of Nigerian activist Dele Ailemen from the Los Angeles area. It
is rounded out with information about the Hands Off Assata campaign and a
planned Black August event about the exiled Black liberation freedom
fighter, on whose head a $1 million fugitive slave bounty has just been placed.

"Turning the Tide" has been publishing for 18 years as an independent,
grassroots voice opposing colonialism and white supremacy and struggling
for human liberation and planetary survival. It has no partisan subsidies,
government grants, foundation financing or corporate underwriting. For a
