Inspired by the day of global protest, this is a work in progress.  If all you know about this movement is what you’ve seen on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, the WB or some other mainstream source, you’re doing yourself a disservice.  70k people in Televiv.  10 - 20k people took to Times Square in NY.  Whats going on in Oakland, CA is CRAZY.  Denver, Colorado —- madness.

For many years, many have been talking about a shift.  When the 2012 end-of-the-world-madness hit the tv and movie theaters, those in the know talked about how the Mayans never said the world would end, but that there would be a shift in consciousness.  I heard someone discuss something along those lines the other night… something about this global reaction being a bit deeper than economic enslavement and corrupt politics.  It was very, very interesting. 

Some believe it’s do or die right now. I’m not referring to violence, but more so the fact that failure to implement change will result the death of many and the continued crippling of the ecosphere.

Anyway…  won’t get into it.  I never thought I would witness any such thing in America. 

I was wrong.

It has begun…
[again]

The people are becoming reacquainted with their power. 

When the civil rights movement was waning and the pan-african movement was still alive in this country, my father took to the streets… There were people from all over the world struggling to establish a sense of unity, not only for people of color, but for all people.  They wanted the same things we want today… freedom, justice and peace… They struggled to stay alive in a place where hate groups, who often murdered protesters without any legal consequences, had more power and favor than law abiding citizens. 

Somewhere between now and then, some things have changed… and some things have not. Now, unlike then, people from all walks of life realize that we are all shafted in many ways.  Beyond race, creed and other forms of separation/classification, we have all been conned. Many do not know the details and inner workings of our economic and political systems.  After all, such information has been left out of our class rooms, television shows, magazines and newspapers.  However, it doesn’t take rocket science to recognize a con.

I have heard many criticize this movement.  Such criticism has even come from people I respect and admire.  However, unlike them I see no positivity in such criticisms, be they accurate or otherwise.  Where they see flaws and chinks, I see strength and numbers.  They they see a lack of focus (demands), I see patience and a plethora of questions that demand serious answers.  Where they see a mass of uninformed people, I see a mass of information exchange… a massive organized community to be more accurate…  Perhaps a group of people that represent real democracy, community, solidarity in a… protest experiment of sorts. 

Where they see a path to failure, I see existing success.

We live in world where millions flock to see the Superbowl or watch a sitcom, and mere hundreds (if that) gather to fight for a worthy cause.  I am proud to see this movement bring together thousands of strangers and I know it will bring thousands more.

Unity. 

That is where the power lies. 

Unity.

The civil rights protesters knew it.  The womens rights protester knew it.  Pan-Africanists… Workers unions… And on and on…

For this, I am happy and grateful.
It is the beginning of an ending…
…the start of a closing chapter.

I support this movement.

PS: OfF ToPic… I can’t believe we live in a free country where people can get arrested and go to jail for wearing mask… Yes.. A mask = handcuffs and jail.  The thought alone is crazy… To make matters worse,  I find this disturbing truth even more disturbing with Halloween around the corner( lol ).  I laugh, but I know its not funny.  Freedom in New York, like freedom in the rest of the country, is an evolving joke.  But… this country, like its people, is changing as well…

Update: Seems like some people I admire and respect are coming around.  Good for them!

Aisha Mike - River of Passion

River of Passion

Something for Sunday… Stepping away from house music, for a sec.  We’ll come back to the house by the weekend (I hope). 

I know the piano starts off a bit weird, but stay with me here.  Thats the singer playing the keys there. 

I always wanted to finish this with a bass player, guitarist and live drums.  I never had the chance… Oh well.

Mr. Stim' - Get Free
10 plays

This song was inspired by some Caribbean music and the news.  I never really finished it… and probably should have taken out that synth thing (in the break).

I often wonder why people must kill other people.  What is a human life worth?  Land? Money? Fame? Power?  When is enough enough? Is it ever?  Funny how the masses can be happy with so little, and the few crave more riches upon their riches and are never content.  Funny how greed, government and corporate interests lead to guns and bombs dropping on innocent unarmed human beings… who all simply want to live their lives.

It’s a spectacle watched by all…

Despite all of our alleged advances as human beings we can’t seem to get the basics right.  We can’t respect life, be it human or otherwise.  Without respect for life, how advanced are we really?

We are all going to die someday… but I wish we lived in a world where natural causes replaced the bullet and the bomb.

Freedom and peace to all here or in the hereafter

The choice is ours.
