The African People of Love HeadquartersWelcome to African People of Love. “When we surrender our personal power, we cede our rights, our progress, and our emotions to others. We can reverse the situation when we take back the reins of power over our lives. Awakening ourselves, involving ourselves, keeping ourselves energized and alert will help us focus on the things we need to do to make our lives fulfilling –and to make our African Nation Strong. By Eliyah X.”!

Protest at Site of Grand Jury

By Staff

Chicago, IL -75 people entered the lobby of the Dirksen Federal Building here, Dec. 23, to make a statement to U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and the FBI. They were there because four more anti-war and international solidarity activists have been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury.

Maureen Murphy, one of those targeted by Fitzgerald with a grand jury date of Jan. 25, made a strong statement to the press:

"I have no intention in participating in the government’s witch hunt. It is very clear that no crime has been committed and that the government’s motivation in issuing these subpoenas is to have us name the names of other activists not only here in the United States, but also in places like Palestine and Colombia, where many of us have traveled to learn about the human rights situations in those places. We can only assume that the U.S. government shares intelligence with the governments of Israel and Colombia, whose repressive military rule the U.S. bankrolls at the taxpayer’s expense. And it is essentially a prison sentence or worse for human rights activists in Palestine and Colombia to be singled out in this way. And I have no intention in playing any role in that."

Why Indefinite Detention By Executive Order Should Scare the Hell Out of People Obama’s Liberty Problem By BILL QUIGLEY and VINCE WARREN The right to liberty is one of the foundation rights of a free people [sic]. The idea that any US President can bypass Congress and bypass the Courts by issuing an Executive Order setting up a new legal system for indefinite detention of people should rightfully scare the hell out of the American people. Advisors in the Obama administration have floated the idea of creating a special new legal system to indefinitely detain people by Executive Order. Why? To do something with the people wrongfully imprisoned in Guantanamo. Why not follow the law and try them? The government knows it will not be able to win prosecutions against them because they were tortured by the US. Guantanamo is coming up on its ninth anniversary – a horrifying stain on the character of the US commitment to justice. President Obama knows well that Guantanamo is the most powerful recruitment tool for those challenging the US. Unfortunately, this proposal for indefinite detention will prolong the corrosive effects of the illegal and immoral detentions at Guantanamo rightly condemned world-wide. The practical, logical, constitutional and human rights problems with the proposal are uncountable. Our system provides a simple answer developed over hundreds of years – try them or release them. Any other stop gap measure like the one proposed merely pushes the problem back down the road and back into the courts again. While it may appear to be a popular political response, the public will soon enough see this for what it is – an unconstitutional usurping of power by the Executive branch and a clear and present danger to all Americans. The US government has never publicly said who can be prosecuted and who they have decided to hold indefinitely because they think they cannot successfully charge them. Now, after holding people for years and years, they think they can create a new set of laws by Executive Order which will justify their actions? Recall that dozens of the very same people who would now be subject to indefinite detention have already been cleared for release by the government. How can indefinite detention of people we already cleared to go home possibly be legal? The government proposes essentially to detain people for being a potential member or friend of the enemy force – a standard that is too open ended and inconsistent with the US and international laws of war. Our criminal process, requiring charge, conviction and other safeguards, is the primary means by which the government may deprive a person of liberty, with carefully limited exceptions. “Freedom from bodily restraint has always been at the core of the liberty protected by the Due Process Clause from arbitrary governmental action.” The Supreme Court has “always been careful not to “minimize the importance and fundamental nature of the individual’s right to liberty.” Foucha v Louisiana, 504 US 71 (1992). The liberty of all persons is protected by the criminal process guarantees, among other rights: the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures; probable cause for arrest; right to counsel, right to indictment by grand jury; right to trial by an impartial jury; the right to a speedy public trial; the presumption of innocence; the right that government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt every fact necessary to make out the charged offense; a privilege against self-incrimination; the right to confront and cross examine witnesses; the right to present witnesses and use compulsory process; the duty on the government to disclose exculpatory evidence; prohibition against double jeopardy; prohibition against bills of attainder and ex post facto laws; and a prohibition against selective prosecution. For hundreds of years judges and legislatures and advocates for justice have struggled to create protections for our liberty [like genocide against Indigenous people, slavery, colonialism and war]. People who suggest bypassing all of these protections of our liberty in the name of safety or politics do our people and our history a grave disservice. Some wrongfully suggest that preventive detention by the Executive would be allowed because the law already allows civil confinement. But there are only very narrow circumstances when limited civil confinement is allowed by law. It is clear government cannot use civil detention or anything like it to effect punishment or to escape the comprehensive constraints of the criminal justice system. Kansas v Crane, 534 US 407, 412 (2002) (noting that civil commitment must not “become a mechanism for retribution or general deterrence. Further, preventive detention also violates international law, specifically the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), article 9. The proposal to create a special new legal system by Executive Order is an end run around Congress and the Judiciary. It will lengthen the illegal detentions in Guantanamo and will force this entire system back into the courts for years. It will further damage US efforts to portray itself as a fair country of laws, and will threaten the liberty of every single US citizen who is not in Guantanamo because it will damage the due process guarantees which have built up over the years to protect each one of us.

THE POLICE ARE OUT OF CONTROL!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE POLICE ARE OUT OF CONTROL!

Today, November 27th, the New Black Panther Party will join the Peoples Organization for Progress, for a citywide march and rally demanding a U.S. Justice Department investigation of the Newark Police Department.

Marchers will assemble at Broad and Market Sts. at 12 noon.

Both organizations are supporting a 96page petition by the American Civil Liberties Union documenting 407 cases of police abuse just within two and a half year period!

The march and rally takes place against the background of the New Black Panther Party just coming e to the defense of Erika Hankerson again, who was falsely arrested and harassed just several weeks ago. Hankerson is the mother of Travis Rattray, the 15year old Newark youth beaten savagely by an undercover Newark police officer on videotape some months ago.

The march and rally takes on added focus as just this past Wednesday, the Irvington Police Department attacked a peaceful assemblage organized by the Newark AntiViolence Coalition (NAVC). That gathering was to condemn the recent shooting of Saleenah Baines, a pregnant mother of three and coalition member, on Myrtle and Madison Avenue.

The rally was at the site of the shooting.

Under the pathetic direction of Irvington Police Chief Michael Chase himself, the police arrested six coalition members, several female
members were senselessly maced. One female member was punched in the
face and separated from her young son and arrested.

“The Coalition went out of their way to work with City leadership, elected
and law enforcement, to prevent anything like from happening, right up
until the day before the rally,” explained Zayid Muhammad, of the New
Black Panther Party.

“The police response, over 50 deep, from several different specialized squads, was all done in legal language in ‘bad faith’ to say the least, and whole lot of people could have gotten hurt on
both sides, and police leadership ought to be held accountable,” he
finished angrily.

The Irvington attack underscores the organizers broadening their Justice Department call to not just investigate the Newark Police Department, but the patterns of abuse in neighboring forces like Irvington’s.

The Party’s letter to the Justice Department is annexed.

For more information on the march and rally, please call 973 801 0001…
