By Any Means Necessary

“We declare our right on this Earth to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being, in this society, on this Earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary.” The quote comes from Malcolm X’s speech at the founding of the Organization For Afro-American Unity, in which the phrase “by any means necessary” is used repeatedly. “Malcolm X: Inter-national. By Mike Alewitz/Labor Art & Mural project, USA. Special thanks to: Sean Colligan, Bill R, Mickey Doc, Danny Devenny & Radical Artists, Ardoyne Fleadh Comm.”

It’s Black And White!

The Holy Cross dispute of 2001 (WP) is compared to desegregation in the southern United States in the wake of Brown v. Board Of Education in 1957 (WP). The left panel is a rendition of an iconic image of Hazel Bryan hectoring Elizabeth Eckford, one of the Little Rock Nine (WP), in Little Rock, Arkansas. The orange sweaters of the central children echo that of the child in the red coat in the (almost entirely black-and-white) Steven Spielberg movie Schindler’s List. “Everyone has the right to live free from sectarian harassment.” Estoril Park, Belfast.

Wani Waci Yelo

“Wani waci yelo ate omakiyayo” is the opening line of a Lakota healing song (here is a version from Robbie Robertson‘s album Contact From The Underworld Of Redboy) meaning “I am praying because I want to live”. The supplicant in this case is Leonard Peltier, who was convicted of killing two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975 and sentenced to two life-sentences (WP). “Saoirse do Peltier” = “Freedom for Peltier”. “Sign up on line http://www.LeonardPeltierDefenseCommittee” Divis Street, Belfast
