Hip-hop artist Chuck D, best known as a rapper with progressive band Public Enemy, has released a new track in response to the extreme racist, anti-immigrant law passed on April 23 in Arizona entitled “Tear Down That Wall”. The song can be downloaded at Chuck D and his wife, Dr Gaye Theresa Johnson (director of Black and Chicano studies at UC Santa Barbara), also released the following statement against the racist law. * * *
This will be the last column I write about the major league baseball team Arizona Diamondbacks in the foreseeable future. For me, they do not exist. They will continue to not exist in my mind as long as the horribly named anti-immigrant “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act”, signed into law on April 23, remains on the books in Arizona. This law has brought echoes of apartheid to the state.
The following is a transcript of a speech by award-winning journalist John Pilger at the Sydney Teachers’ Federation on April 23. It was part of a public launch of the Four Days in July national Aboriginal rights convergence in Alice Springs from July 6 to 9. * * * I am honoured to be on this platform tonight, and I would like to express my warm appreciation to Richard Downs for asking me to join him in launching this extraordinary call-out to all Australians, Indigenous and non-Indigenous.

Wednesday 26th February, 1-2pm @ Manning Bar, University of Sydney.

February 19, 1pm. Fisher Library, University of Sydney

This protest is to raise awareness toward the 435 deaths of Indigenous Australians in police custody. We are banding together to unite in amplifying the voice of the First Nations People.

We want to prevent the death's of incarcerated Indigenous Australians in the future. We want the recommendations from the 1987 Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody implemented. This glaring injustice has gone on far too long.

We're going to walk onto the Story Bridge, sit down in the middle of the road and refuse to move until our perfectly reasonable demand is met:

FREE MOVEMENT: Let the KP120 outside the compound for free movement at their discretion—to exercise, walk and connect with the community.

Their detention is administrative (while their claims are "processed")—it's not meant to be punitive.
