Last year we profiled Brazilian Revolutionary turned Politician Marielle Franco’s assassination. Franco, who became an advocate against police brutality after her friend, a Black man was murdered by cops. After fighting for the people of Brazil she too succumbed to the same fate. It was long rumored that the “Drive by” that killed her and her driver was politically driven. Now 2 days before the anniversary of her death two former police officers have been arrested in her murder. Here’s the link to our story on her life:
Here’s also the link to the story of their capture:
Idi Amin once known as a loyal soldier to the British army held one of the highest titles in the British military and fought in many battles destroying black lives in the name of the British government.
When the country gained it’s (So called) independence from the UK Amin became head of all the armed forces. Aligning himself with the new President Britian thought they could use Amin to oust the President who although at the time worked with West Germany, Isreal and other European counties began leaning towards the far East. Amin ousted the President but not for Britian.
Becoming the 3rd President of Uganda Amin immediately turned Uganda into a Military state. Viciously he sought to rid Uganda of Any British influence and any non indigenous people, take over their businesses and give them to the people. He took flack for ousting thousands of Asians from the country. He got funding from Mommar Gadafi in Libya and weapons from the west’ s number one enemy, Russia. Nepotism, corruption, ethnic persecution, economic mismanagement in his eight year bloody reign from 1971-79 to defact Uganda from British influence is a gross example of “By any means necessary”
Nelson Mandela, the lawyer born in British South Africa got into politics when the national party instituted apartheid which granted special privaledges to it’s white citizens over the indigenous Blacks.
After years of strife with the racist government Mandela and some of his African National Congress (ANC) members were charged with sabotage and sentenced to life in prison.
After serving 27 years in prison the then President released Mandela in 1990 for fear of a racial Civil War and together Mandela led his ANC to victory in capturing the presidency in 1994 ultimately ending British rule in South Africa.
