Remembrance, Revelation, and Reparation: The Trans-Atlantic Slave System and Its Afterlife

March 25 Online Presentation

– A presentation by Dr. Isaac Saney, followed by Q&A –

Friday, March 25, 2022 at 3:30-5:30 pm EST

Organized by the University of Windsor to commemorate the UN International Day of the Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, as part of the University of Windsor’s Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Decolonization (EDID) Week.

The Trans-Atlantic Slave System fundamentally altered not only the lives and destinies of millions of Africans and the African continent but also transformed the world. Its boundaries and reach extended into every dimension, facet and interstice of the new global society. Indeed, living in a world created by and through the sufferings and struggles of enslaved Africans presupposes that the creation of a more just and sustainable political, economic, social, and ecological order necessitates not only reckoning with this history but also demanding reparatory justice.

Border stories: Anglo-European chauvinism and racism in dealing with Ukrainian refugees

Foreign students in Ukraine brutalized and terrorized at borders. Germany asks Poland to stop sending refugees. Oligarchs, MPs, neo-Nazis flee for their lives | Press review by TONY SEED*


African students await evacuation from Ukraine.

“Civilized” Europe is not only Russophobic but anti-Black and colonial.

Amid a deluge of reports and footage of racial discrimination in Ukraine, representatives from the Caribbean and Africa spoke to the unjust treatment of Ukrainian refugees of African origin during the debate on the UN General Assembly resolution concerning Ukraine. Videos showing Africans being pushed back from trains and border crossings have gone viral on social media (for example, here), causing an uproar and sparking statements of concern by African politicians and officials.

COVID-19 pandemic on the rise

Reports from around the world indicate that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over. Reports include: south Korea 400,000 new cases in one day; France over 100,000 new cases for a second consecutive day; Vietnam 180,000 new cases on March 16. China has 14,850 new cases. Its Jilin region built eight makeshift hospitals to control new outbreaks.

In the United States, the White House said it will start to wind down a COVID-19 program that pays to test, treat and vaccinate people who don’t have health insurance despite 23,663,746 new active cases as of two days ago. Meanwhile, the Pentagon’s budget for 2022 stands at $768 billion.

In Canada, as of March 16, the count of active cases was 115,048 out of total cases of COVID-19 in Canada since the pandemic began of 3,379,200. This includes 39,653 in BC, 6,559 in Alberta, 15,413 in Ontario, 12,704 in Quebec, 6,689 in Nova Scotia, and 4,039 on Prince Edward Island. Given the number of cases in Canada, the risk to Canadians is considered high.

Russian athletes banned and expelled from competition

Developments of Concern Related to U.S./NATO War Hysteria

Russian athletes are being targeted by various sports federations, including the paralympics, soccer, tennis, car racing, figure skating, curling and other sports who are banning them from competitions. The bans were instigated in large part when the International Olympic Committee (IOC), dominated by the U.S. and NATO countries, took an unprecedented step and demanded that global federations and event organizers put in place a global ban on athletes from Russia and Belarus from all sporting events.

Persecution of Russian artists is unacceptable

Developments of concern related to U.S./NATO war hysteria | Pierre Chénier

A matter of great concern is the persecution of Russian artists as a result of the U.S./NATO war hysteria which has become official ideology within the NATO member countries including Canada. The definition of persecution is the systematic mistreatment of an individual or group by another individual or group. In this regard, there is currently a concerted offensive by cultural institutions in NATO member countries to fire or boycott prominent Russian artists. In some cases it is because they refuse to take a political position of their liking on events in Ukraine or simply because hysteria has been fomented against anything Russian.

Shortly after services ended on February 27, red paint was poured on the front doors of the All Saints Russian Orthodox Church in Calgary. Security cameras showed that a man first tried to enter the building, and on finding the door locked poured paint on the doors.

Owners of a Calgary Russian food store and the Russian Spoon in Vancouver have spoken out about the threats they are receiving, and how this is impacting the mental health of the workers. News media report that these are far from isolated cases. Social media threats against Canadians of Russian origin are also being reported.

Developments of Concern Related to U.S./NATO War Hysteria

Latest TML Monthly published

The reason for the pre-emptive strike launched by Russia is the U.S. and NATO refusal to recognize the conditions Russia requires to secure its borders since the end of the bi-polar division of the world. Talk about “Russian aggression” diverts from the fact that there would be no conflict today, or certainly not this conflict, had the U.S. not expanded NATO at all, had it agreed to keep Ukraine out of NATO and not used it to permit neo-Nazi gangs to attack the population of eastern Ukraine and threaten Russia’s borders. It should have dismantled NATO after the Warsaw Pact was officially disbanded in March and July of 1991, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Instead, the U.S. expanded NATO and is engaging in brinkmanship, pushing pushing pushing to see how far it can go in the hopes it can prevail to crush Russia and then deal with China from a position of strength.

This is by no means a road to peace.

International Women’s Day – Origins and History

International Women’s Day was first celebrated in March 1911, with March 8 set as the official date in 1921. Ever since women fought for the right to vote in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the essence of their fight has been political. They have put forward their claims on society as a matter of right, facing all kinds of state-inspired discrimination and violence against them and state-sanctioned attempts to relegate them to second, third and fourth grade citizenship based on brutal identity politics and exploitation. Women, however, speak in their own name and refuse to accept any limitations on their right to decide all matters which affect their lives. Their courage and determination in the front ranks of the struggle for a society which recognizes everyone as equal members of the body politic with equal rights and duties inspires everyone to also fight for the rights of all.
