I don’t think everyone knows that one of the biggest genocide of humanity is currently taking place in Congo, more than six million deaths have already occured in the past 13 years. Silence is a crime so please, spread this, because obviously the medias won’t.

Watch while Obama convinces you how great of a man Nelson Mandela was and how he is deeply grieved by his sad loss, while financing a state that has violated both UN resolutions and International law and keeps oppressing Palestinians through house demolitions, limited access to water, electricity and freedom of movement, and military occupation that was deeply condemned by Mandela himself, who called it apartheid similarly to his experience in South Africa. If you see past his act, tell me how that could possibly be fair.
"And if there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America."
Nelson Mandela (via lifeisliterallylimited)
Corruption is everywhere. I feel helpless knowing that my own taxes and today’s essential brands fund a military occupation, and that some people don’t know a single thing about this, while venerating a government that caused so much harm and damages to countries that they can’t even place on a geographic map. I think we all contribute someway or another to these illegal acts, because as much as we say that we can’t do anything about it, we’re the ones who refuse to unite, protest and divest.
"Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law. It has, in particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children."

"Today, as you see whitewashed images of a post-prison, unarmed, grandfatherly Mandela, please remember that he was someone who had the pride and courage to take up arms against his oppressor. Mandela fought in a guerilla war against white supremacy in South Africa, as did many others all across the world. Our own CIA alerted the SA authorities to Mandela’s location, which is what led to his 27 years behind bars and the medical condition which felled him today. Our government was responsible for that crime, and still holds our own anti-apartheid militants behind bars. So when you see Obama crying his crocodile tears later today remember that he would imprison a modern Mandela, that he arms the apartheid government of Israel, that he refuses to pardon those who fought against the corporations propping up the South African government here in the US, and that he has done everything he can to crush the kind of dissent that Mandela stood for."
