Syria: Operation Red Line

By J L Samboma

The latest instalment of "Letting Off Steam," our occasional documentary series, this episode maintains that the chemical attack in Syria, on 21 August, was a ploy by Western imperialism to pave the way for  intervention to effect regime change in that country.

It provides evidence that links the attack to a Dirty Tricks plot by the Americans to kill hundreds, perhaps thousands of children, women and other innocent civilians in a Pinky-and-the-Brain-like bid for World Domination. Please don't laugh. This is dead serious!

Please watch and share.

"Hands Off Syria" demonstration outside Downing Street

By J L Samboma

The following video is of the "Hands Off Syria" demonstration outside Downing Street on 28 August of this year.  It took place at a time when many of us felt the Western imperialist powers were on the verge of another spree of mass-murder in another Middle East country. However, historical forces conspired to deny Mr Obama and co the "pleasure." This video is the first of an occasional documentary series we have called "Letting Off Steam."  Please watch and share.

Denis Macshane, corruption and the hubris of the British political class

By J L Samboma

Former Labour MP Denis MacshaneThe resignation of British politician Denis Macshane from the House of Commons, and his expulsion from the Labour party after being found guilty of corruption, may not rank as high on the scale of tragic ironies as the story of Oedipus Rex, but it sure brings that ancient tale to mind.

Scripted by Sophocles, Oedipus Rex is about a man who slays a traveller he does not know is his father and then goes on to inherit the latter’s throne and wife – who just happens to be his own mother.  One of the many tragic ironies of the tale is that Oedipus then vows to find and punish the man who killed the king – none other than he himself!

A modest discourse on Received Wisdom

By J L Samboma

Thomas SankaraaIt is inherent in the process of human cognition that we are apt to take a given stimulus, internalise it at face value and then – hey presto! – assume it to be divine truth and subsequently parrot it as our very own origination.  And so it happened to me not long ago, when I chanced upon a statement which, on the surface, seemed to be a self-evident truth, to wit: "Avoid loud and aggressive people."

The Hijacking of Libya, an eBeefs documentary 

By J L Samboma

The following is a trailer for a documentary on last year's imperialist assault on Libya, during which a sovereign nation was hijacked by the West and their local henchmen, under the guise of bringing "freedom and democracy" to the country. The project is now in post-production, although a few interviews are pending. The aim of this trailer is to provide a taster and to help solicit funds for production costs.

Bang Bang in Da Manor screening leads to debate on gun and knife crime

By J L Samboma

Britain’s black community must look inward rather than to the wider society for solutions to the increasing black-on-black gun and knife culture and its growing toll on young lives, according to parents, young people and community activists at the recent screening of Bang Bang in Da Manor, a film on the subject.

The screening was organised by A Just Movement for African Unity (AJAMU) and the OMEGA Foundation Society.  Speaking after the documentary show, which took place at the Park View Learning Centre in north London, one concerned parent* said: “We have to take a hard look within ourselves.  We are catastrophically failing our young people.”

Lumumba film screened for 51st anniversary of killing

By J L Samboma

Patrice LumumbaA documentary film on the death of Patrice Lumumba was screened at London’s Human Rights Action Centre Saturday 21 January to mark the 51st anniversary of the slaying of the Congo’s first post-colonial leader. The event was organised by the Save the Congo group and was well-attended.

Arguably the most important political assassination of the twentieth century, the Pan-Africanist leader was killed on January 1961 in a plot involving the USA, Belgium – the former colonial overlord in the Congo, the United Nations and local, African pawns such as Colonel Joseph Mobutu.  According to Vava Tampa of the Save the Congo group, the consequences of that plot haunt the country to this day.
