[or Why Mumia Supports Turning the Tide]:
We live in a nation now where over 90% -- Ninety Percent! – of the national media overtly supported a ruinous, dreadful, imperial war, based on a lie.
The question isn’t why should you support Turning the Tide, but why do you still support the corporate media?
They waved flags, beat the drums, played martial music, and swam in the funk of fake fear to propel the nation to a mad war in Iraq – all to please their corporate shareholders – to sell their products, and to continue praying at the Imperial altar of Oil.
What was Turning the Tide doing at the time? They were on the ground, printing the pieces that gave us insight into the grassroots, and giving rare voice to those sane amongst us, who damned the war as a naked Imperial exercise.
They turned their lenses on the prisons, the streets, the neighborhoods and communities of Blacks, Brown, anti- Imperialist whites, and gave a truer, deeper portrait of the world – the world in protest against the Racist Empire.
So, support Turning the Tide, for when you do so – you support yourself, and the Movements that are paving a way for the future.
