AFRICOM, #Striketober and Line 3 Pipeline Protests

What's up to my wild-hearted wildebeests and capering cape buffalos!

Welcome back to the BNP everyone! Thank you for joining. Shout out to my patrons- I love you! Strap in folks, there's a lot on the docket for this one.

This week is a solo mission, and I tackle 3 topics that are both timely and critical for empire babies and concerned global citizens to understand. They are also all being ignored in the corporate media, unsurprisingly. 

Firstly, we cover #Striketober, a month of rolling worker strikes across the U.S. There are currently 18 active strikes, including at massive corporations like Kellogg's and John Deere. Solidarity to all striking workers!! Boycott Kellogg's products until the workers get what they deserve.

Secondly, we cover the ongoing Indigenous led protests against the Enbridge Line 3 Tar Sand Pipeline in N. Minnesota.  This pipeline is brazenly breaking tribal treaties and polluting our precious land and water. Indigenous activists and allies occupied the Bureau of Indian Affairs building in D.C. for the first time since 1972. Over 150 people have been arrested and elders have been getting beaten and tazed by the state.

Finally, we unpack AFRICOM, or U.S. African Command. AFRICOM represents a troublingly large and growing footprint of the U.S. military, intelligence agencies and special forces across the African continent. AFRICOM grew massively under the Obama administration, and has accelerated since the brutal overthrow of Libya, because the Libyan leadership was a major force in resisting AFRICOM. Now, it's spread out all across the continent, and the U.S. is executing 4,000+ mostly secret missions a year. We never hear about this, because the corporate media is white supremacist. This episode is my offering to help raise awareness about AFRICOM, so we can build a movement at home to end it. U.S. Out Of Africa!  

Thank you for rating, reviewing and subscribing to the BNP wherever you listen to podcasts, and for spreading the word and telling a friend about the BNP. It's how we expand our tribe of philosopher-barbarians and un-fuck the world together!
