!Wars Without End -- Again!

{speech writ. 10/14/07} (c) '07 Mumia Abu-Jamal

 

    Ona Move! LLJA!

    Thanx for your invitation for me to speak to you today!

    For millions of people (I among them) the Nov. 2006 elections marked a major turning point in U.S. politics -- or so we thought.

    The elections had one, single motivation: to end the Iraq war.

    Well, the elections changed majorities in Congress.  But did it change U.S. policy?

    Nope.

    Before the numbers of votes could all be counted, you heard the backtracking: "we must be cautious"; "if we leave now, there'd be chaos", etc., etc.

    Now, Democrats say openly that no significant troop withdrawal can come before 2012- 5 more years!

    And then, don't you think you'll hear an additional 5 or 10 years?

    War isn't a Democratic or Republican project - it is a corporate one, where both corporate parties play the game laid down by their sponsors and contributors.

    Here we see the convergence between neo liberals and neo conservatives, who join in their service to corporate power.  Their 'fight' (if it can be called that) is over who can represent their bosses best (and, by this, I don't mean voters!)

    But, people, working through popular movements, can change how politicians think, speak, and even act.

    If you put your trust in the same politicians, you'll achieve the same result - disappointment, frustration and yes -- betrayal.

    What kind of democracy is it if you vote for peace, only to get more war?

    But the answer isn't less protests -- it's more protests!

    To finally bring peace, the People must bring it!

    Thank you!

    Ona Move!
