Biden Will Resume “Humanitarian” Wars
The Biden Administration will “shift back to the ‘humanitarian’ interventionism model of US imperialism,” said Danny Haiphong, contributing editor of Black Agenda Report and co-host of the influential podcast The Left Lens. “Biden’s rhetoric from the beginning has not been encouraging on easing the Cold War against China” and heightened tensions with Russia, said Haiphong.
Haitians Tell President “Get Out by February 7”
Protesters gather regularly in cities around the country to demand that Haitian President Jovenel Moise step down by February 7. “Jovenel has been ruling by decree” in the absence of a legally constituted national legislature, said Daoud Andre, an organizer with the Brooklyn, New York-based Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti. The United States and its allies continue to support Moise, because “he does their bidding.”
“Expect Push for Censorship Under Biden
Under the new administration, the State will attempt to “constrict political analysis and alternative information, to impose on us an ideological conformity,” said Ajamu Baraka, national organizer of the Black Alliance for Peace, speaking at a Dissenters online event. UCLA history professor, author and activist Robin DG Kelley said the movement must “do a better job of fighting on behalf of our prisoners of war,” some of whom have been incarcerated for three generations. These prisoners defended their actios under international law, “and that’s why judges hate them,” said Kelley.
