In this episode Penny Hess, Jamie Simpson and Jesse Nevel discuss Pete Buttegieg's track record as mayor of South Bend, Indiana as it relates to the mass incarceration of African people, the question of marijuana decriminalization and the case for reparations for the colonial "war on drugs" waged as part of the U.S. counterinsurgency against the African community.
Co-hosts Jamie Simpson, Penny Hess, Jesse Nevel are joined by Renee Nassar and Halley Murray to discuss the historic plenary conference of the African People's Socialist Party, "Vanguard Up! Unity of Theory and Practice" as well as a lively discussion about the Iowa Caucus disaster and the crisis of imperialism. We also took questions from facebook on the role of white people in solidarity with the African liberation movement.
"Reparations in Action" is the weekly broadcast that goes from the headlines onto the frontlines, with analysis and lively discussion from the point of view of African Internationalism, addressing the white community on why it is our responsibility and interest to join under the leadership of the African Revolution.
