Innocent people living in fear anywhere is a problem: Feloniou...

Beirut. Paris. Nigeria. America. It's not "this or that." It's both. All oppression is linked in the sense that there are groups of people attempting to control other groups of people through fear.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Vaccines & Black Concerns


Each year, many children are injected with potentially harmful mercury-based neurotoxins at a time when their immune systems are very vulnerable, and their brains and other organs are still developing. Pharmaceutical companies are among those manufacturing U.S. licensed vaccines and they make billions. Nothing has stopped rapaciously greedy elites from corrupting medical related industries. 

Many are concerned about vaccines and their possible links to autism.

Autism is four times more common in boys than in girls with the largest increase being seen among Black and Latino children. This is alarming, especially when you consider that fact that many Blacks and Latinos live in areas lacking high quality health care facilities, are more likely not to have medical coverage, and are less likely to have the income needed to afford expensive treatments or special educational needs for a child diagnosed with autism.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the son of former U.S. Attorney Gen. Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, who is an outspoken critic of forced vaccination and the use of the mercury-based Thimerosal. Here are important words from him lasting approximately 10 minutes.

The 5th Annual Englewood International Film Festival




Community Film Festival inspires attendees with Powerful Vision 
Englewood Film Festival’s fifth year celebration bring powerful celebrities to Chicagoland.


It is October and tickets for the Englewood International Film Festival (EIFF) are now on sale. This is the fifth year that EIFF has been apart of the community and they show no signs of slowing down. The festival will be held Thursday, October 22 through Sunday, October 25, 2015. While embarking on their fifth year the theme for this year’s festival is “Vision.”

Naturi Naughton
The EIFF founders have been advertising on various social media platforms about the tickets and workshops that are apart of the weekend festivities. One workshop creating a lot of buzz is the actor’s workshop “Power of the Actor” with Naturi Naughton and Wendy Mckenzie.
This ticket gives you the opportunity to submit your bio and headshot for consideration by Swirl Films and In The Wink of An Eye Casting for upcoming projects.
This year the festival selection committee has received several films from here in Chicago to Iraq. The festival includes four days of networking, workshops and films for all ages. While the opening night premiere film and celebrities attending the festival is still a surprise, EIFF founders, Mark Harris and Alisa Inez believe that their “vision” for the festival continues to build each year and more people from the Chicagoland community and the independent film community will want to be active part of making their vision a reality.
Coming back for the second year is the EIFF Career Day. Grammar and High Schools in Englewood are offered an opportunity to have a film industry professional visit their school. Actors, Film Producers, Writers, Set Designers and Make-Up Artists and many more volunteer their day to go into as many classes as possible to speak about their career path in film; whether in front of the camera or behind the scenes. Their “vision” is to encourage youth to see great possibilities for their lives and the importance of education.
Save the date: October 22-25,2015. Early bird tickets are currently on sale on www.eiff.org. With so much to do in preparation for this event we are still looking for community members to be a part of our vision. If you would like to volunteer up to three hours of your time to EIFF or if you are a business that is inspired to partner with us, contact englewoodfilmfestival@gmail.com.

‘Chosen For Change’ An Interview with Michael Brown Sr. #JusticeOrElse

His son in death, still lives as the patron saint of a movement.

Minister Farrakhan declared Mike Brown Jr. a 'patron saint' of the #JusticeOrElse movement

On August 9, 2014 the death of Michael Brown Jr., shocked and angered people to such an extent that the little town of Ferguson, just outside of St. Louis became known as “Ground Zero” and sparked nationwide protests against police brutality.

He was shot dead in the street at the Canfield Green Apartment complex by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

The young man’s death has taken an emotional toll on his father, Michael Brown Sr., in fact, just a little over two weeks prior to his son being shot down, the 18-year-old  stood by his father’s side as the Best Man during his wedding.

His son has now become the patron saint of a movement, a martyr. He shared his thoughts with me just steps away from where his son was killed.

***

Ashahed M. Muhammad (AMM:) Brother Michael, we’re all with you, we’ve seen you on the front line marching and we admire your courage and bravery standing and want to tell you that we really appreciate you giving us your time to talk. We know this is really an emotional time for you.  Can you put any of your thoughts into words for us right now to let us know a little bit about how you’re feeling?

Mike Brown, Sr. (MB:) Of course I’m still hurt, I’m still grieving, I’m still going through my emotions.  This is just the beginning—for me this fight has just started.  Where I’m heading with this big thing I’m pushing is just keeping aware of what these people have been doing to us for 400 plus years; I’m about the fight.

AMM: As it relates to what has happened so far what are you happy about and what are you unhappy about as far as justice for your son?

MB: Ain’t nothing happening but me standing up for him! It’s still a lot of work to do. I’m proud of myself, the team. I’m proud of St. Louis and everybody around that’s standing with me but it’s still a loss.

AMM: In your quiet time when you are alone and you reflect on memories of your son, because of the way he was characterized and demonized in the controlled media, what is something that people don’t know about your son that they should know?

MB: That smile that goes across my brain every time I look at a picture or think of him.

AMM: Your foundation has been started. It is called Chosen for Change. That is the outgrowth of what has happened and a catalyst for activism in your son’s name. Do you want to tell us a little bit about that?

MB: It was made up one night me and my wife were just sitting up looking at pictures that kids had drew of my son. One of the pictures was from a 10-year old of a picture that he drew of my son. He had (written) across the top of it and it said “chosen for change.” And this 10-year old I’m looking for him so I thank him for the title. With this foundation we are basically based upon helping the youth empowering our youth, helping Black men and women; just keeping us strong and knowing what we need to do for ourselves to be mentally educated and the resources we need to keep going forward in life and positive.

AMM: “Justice or Else!” is the theme for the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March. Do you have any thoughts on that theme and Minister Farrakhan elevating your son saying he would be like our patron saint and one of the symbols of what this is all about?

MB: Yeah! I like that I like how he put that together … that’s cold. (Smiling) That’s all I’m going to say about that.

AMM: Thank you.

It has been nearly one year since Michael Brown Jr. was shot dead in the streets of an apartment complex on Canfield Drive in Ferguson, Mo., by former police officer Darren Wilson. His August 9, 2014 death shocked and angered people to such an extent that the little town just outside of St. Louis became known as “Ground Zero” and sparked nationwide protests against police brutality. As we approach one year since his son's death, his father Michael Brown Sr. told me he wants #JusticeOrElse!
"I’m still hurt, I’m still grieving, I’m still going through my emotions.  This is just the beginning—for me this fight has just started.  Where I’m heading with this big thing I’m pushing is just keeping us aware of what these people have been doing to us for 400 plus years; I’m about the fight."

Activist Tamika Mallory on the call for #JusticeOrElse: 'It's now or never'


Tamika D. Mallory
"I think it is definitely timely! It’s now or never, and clearly we see that all across the country Black folks are on fire and that’s in good ways and bad ways. We’re prepared to fight back at this point but we must be convened, we need some training, we need some understanding that is rooted deeper than us just being activist that sort of ‘pop up’ and  want to move.  We need to be able to understand how these things connect and the right way to get it done and I think what Minister Farrakhan is providing—an opportunity for all of us to come together—is significant at this time.

I remember the Million Man March. I was 15-years old. My father went, so I remember all the Black men in my family were a part of the Million Man March and it certainly was encouraging for me to see that. I think that for me to be a part of the planning of the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March is certainly a culmination for me of the work that I’ve been doing."
