UPDATED: Friday Jan. 10th 2014


Historical note on the subject of Barack Obama:

Real Change is not about putting a new person in the place, as the leader of the ruling empire. It can give some smaller changes maybe?!
Revolutionary change is more leaning towards seriously considering a turnover of the present power-system (What we in daily speak refer to as Babylon).

Let me remind you that Democracy is not in function at the moment!

In this situation we now look at - of worldwide importance and impact - every 4 years the system lets 5% of the world population, get the chance, to choose between 2 candidates, from - uptil now at least - 2 corporate depend parties, in a usually frauded election.

If a man like Barack Obama can win and enter the position of president of the ruling empire, and that way, help real change towards the fall of this Babylon system - and do it in a just way and positive manner - I can only approve of him.

Surely Obama leaves us much hope - it sounds like a dream having a Black man take over the White house.
The question is of cause, if this man can manage to be idealistic, realistic and pragmatic all the way to Babylon fall - which actually means moving dissolving his own position as president.

People to the power, Obama, please! That is real change...

Give thanks for listening,
Ras Thor Caf I,
Action Taken

We are proud to support these
revolutionarys in their Act.
In a recent 100.000 people stong
demontration in Copenhagen,
youth activists from
the International Socialists
where the only ones who had
the guts to throw out the
leader of the ultra-rightwing
socalled Danish Folkparty.
She, Pia Kjærsgård, had showed
up at the demonstration,
even though it was eventually
against her politricks as
the leader of a supporting party
for the right-wing government.
They did so,
dressed like Robin Hoods,
peacefully but determinated,
trowning paper-strips and
shouting slogans like:
"No more racists in our streets".
Pia Kjærsgård finally
fleet the demonstration and
made a big fuss about it,
in the media.
Click here to see the
a videoclip from the action.

International Socialists also
supports the right to be socialist
and religious at the same time,
in the case of the socialist female
muslim Asmaa Abdol Hamid.

Speech by H.I.M. Haile Selassie I,
28th February, 1968:

[Here reproduced as it was put to music by Bob Nesta Marley in the song 'War' on the Album 'Rastaman Vibration']

"Until the philosophy which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be persued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa, sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of a war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not now peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory
Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil..."
