Conscious political rapper "M1" of Dead Prez:

"FROM THE GHETTO TO GAZA"

-- interview tour in Oakland, San Francisco and other Northern California cities

What:

Tonight's the night for YOU to sit down with M1 of dead prez, who speaks with as much fire power as he raps, to discuss and debate the best ways to help Gaza win justice - ways that we can then turn around and use to win justice in our Ghettos here at home - on his Ghetto to Gaza speaking/interview tour.

M1 of Dead Prez will be speaking about his travels to Gaza in support of the Palestinian people and their intense struggle for basic human needs, human rights, and liberation from well over a half-century of brutal Zionist colonialism -- the 20th and 21st century's longest human rights catastrophe.

Resistance to this brutal colonialism is labeled "anti-Semitism" -- where the once brutally oppressed, in Europe, had since become the brutal oppressors, in historic Palestine (Israel has become its colonial name).

Ironically, it was the Nazis who saw the European Jews as barbaric -- and then, ironically, Zionist Jews who saw and see the Palestinians as barbaric. Since then, C was made to pay for something that A did to B, made to pay by both A and B.

Zionists were/are just the latest group of such racist Europeans, this time Jewish instead of Christian, going out to the non-European world, also toting the Bible and the gun, claiming religious oppression back home in Europe, but, in turn, demonizing and oppressing others abroad in the non-European world.

M1 will be interviewed by Nadra Foster, the former broadcaster at KPFA who was beat up by the police inside of the studios, after a member of management lied on Nadra a year ago and called the police to the radio station on her.
