The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and – hopefully – promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Forget Juneteenth, July 4th and Covid-19... hoards of White Women are storming the streets to protest the Supreme Court ruling to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision on abortion. Once again, Race Soldiers used this moment to Racially Showcase Justice Clarence Thomas, as though he's in charge of the court and made all the (mostly White) judges make a decision to his liking. The SCOTUS had other rulings this week. They also decided against New York State's legal prohibition on the concealed carry of firearms. The "empire state" was already having robust dialog about increased gun violence and crime in New York City as well as last month's White Terrorist attack in Buffalo, which left 10 black residents dead. In Belgium, White officials agreed to send the remains of former Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba back to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Lumumba was assassinated in 1961 - and his remains were deliberately hidden. We'll also discuss plans in California to label cannabis products with mental health warnings. #DomesticWhiteTerrorism #BlackSelfRespect #TheCOWS13 INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE: 564943#

This Friday episode is here to carry you into the weekend with some thoughts on the Women's PGA Championship beating up the best in the world early in the week, and the meritless complaints about it being too hard and long. There's some brief chatter about the Prince's push in Hartford and Living and Working in Maine.

⁣Your Working Dog Radio hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with Director and Co-Founder of ATS, Anti-poaching Tracking Specialists, Bryce Clemence.⁣ ⁣ Bryce Clemence, was awarded 2021 Best Game Ranger in Africa, by the Game Rangers Association of Africa, for the Rhino Conservation Awards. These awards recognise excellence and unity in the field of wildlife management. Bryce and his father, Peter Clemence, founded ATS in 2009; later joined by Bryce's brother, Shannon Clemence.⁣ ⁣ Shannon served as a tracking instructor at Scott Donelan Tracking School, which regularly trained American Special Military Units. Shannon returned to Zimbabwe and joined the family in 2015.⁣ ⁣ Peter is an ex-Selous Scout Chief Instructor, in the Rhodesian Army. The Selous Scouts were raised as a special forces regiment, and specialised in bush craft and counter insurgency, and intelligence based work. They were trained to hunt and forage for their own food and water supplies. Their survival skills allowed them to operate without external support which was critical to their operations. The Selous Scouts is still widely recognised today as one of the most elite counter insurgence units in history.⁣ ⁣ Bryce Clemence and his father have trained many of Zimbabwe's best rangers in key Intensive Rhino Protection Zones across the country. Extensive training has been conducted for Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (ZPWMA) and Africa Parks. Additionally, ATS has trained hundreds of rangers, and prepared pass-outs for APU's in South Africa, Zambia, Malawi, Rwanda, Chad and Congo.⁣ ⁣ Today, ATS is regarded as having created one of the best operating Malinois canine units in Southern Africa: An award winning rhino protection, anti-poaching and illegal wildlife anti-trafficking, wildlife conservation and security unit in Zimbabwe's Savé Valley Conservancy. The dogs will regularly track up to 25kms, and on poacher detections will go further than this. Total area under their protection is 250,000 HA.⁣ ⁣ ATS works primarily against two main groups: Rhino Poachers, and Bushmeat Poachers. ⁣ The rhino poachers are highly skilled network in trafficking, well supported, and motivated by the rising demand for rhino horn in Asia. They are not afraid to use gunfire against ATS. The bushmeat poachers are prolific, subsidiary illegal hunters. These hunters employ snare traps, and usually, homemade type weapons, spears and knives. They know the bush very well and are vulnerable to becoming targets for ivory syndicates (rhino gangs) to recruit.⁣ ⁣ Their work is not for the faint of heart! Be sure to sit down, and learn something from this incredible team! You can also follow ATS for more information and to learn how to get involved!⁣ @ats_antipoaching

There are, once again, tweaks proposed for the playoffs and a three-event cash grab tour in the fall. Andy and Brendan discuss all these proposals, how they might work, and if they will matter in the fight against LIV. Stick around for the ad read on this one as well, as they might get in trouble. One name defecting to LIV is Brooks Koepka, and his decision is panned in light of his recent statements.

Shhhhedule for the week focuses on a logjam of major golf, starting with the Women's PGA at Congressional, which should show beautifully.

Chimpanzees fascinate people for many reasons. We are struck by the apes' resemblance to humanity, as seen in their use of tools and their complex social lives, and we are moved by the threats that human activity poses to them. Our awareness of our closest living relatives testifies to the efforts of the remarkable people who study these creatures and work to protect them. What motivates someone to dedicate their lives to chimpanzees? How does that reflect on our own species?This book brings together a range of chimpanzee experts who tell powerful personal stories about their lives and careers. It features some of the world's preeminent primatologists―including Jane Goodall and Frans de Waal―as well as representatives of a new generation from varied backgrounds. In addition to field scientists, the book features anthropologists, biologists, psychologists, veterinarians, conservationists, and the director of a chimpanzee sanctuary. Some grew up in the English countryside, others in villages in Congo; some first encountered chimpanzees in a zoo, others in the forests surrounding their homes. All are united by a common purpose: to study and understand chimpanzees in order to protect them in the wild and care for them in zoos and sanctuaries. Contributors share what inspired them, what shaped their career choices, and what motivates them to strive for solutions to the many challenges that chimpanzees face today.Support Independent Bookstores buy the book here: https://wellingtonsquarebooks.indiecommerce.com/book/9780231199292

Ep. No. 64 — Disobeying his boss turned a humanitarian crisis into a calling / Sasha Chanoff, CEO and Founder, RefugePoint and Co-Author, “From Crisis to Calling: Finding Your Moral Center in the Toughest Decisions”. In 2000, refugee expert and humanitarian aid worker Sasha Chanoff was in the Congo on a mission to evacuate a very specific set of Tutsi refugees, who were on a UN resettlement list. But as he was about to leave with those refugees, Chanoff was invited into a tent. And what he saw in that tent would shake the foundation of his life, soul, and career. That “crucible moment” as Chanoff calls his experience in that tent prompted him to launch RefugePoint, whose mission is to address the critical and unmet needs of those who fall through the cracks of humanitarian assistance and have no other options for survival. RefugePoint has a special focus on women, children, and urban refugees. Chanoff is the co-author of the leadership book, “From Crisis to Calling: Finding Your Moral Center in the Toughest Decisions,” which he co-authored with his dad, noted non-fiction writer, David Chanoff. He has won many awards and accolades for his extraordinary contributions to addressing the global refugee crisis. In this moving episode, Chanoff examines the impact of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the global refugee and humanitarian crisis that it is exacerbating. And he dives deep into his and RefugePoints efforts to address the huge gaps in the systems put in place globally to help the 100 million people that have been forced to leave their homes, belongings, and families behind, sacrificing everything they know and love, as is happening in Ukraine today. As we commemorate World Refugee Day today and recognize the grim realities of the forced migration crisis happening all around the world, I'm honored to welcome a pioneer in the field, Sasha Chanoff, CEO and Founder of RefugePoint.

“Here in our culture when you don't see the body of someone, for the woman you can't go back to sleep on the bed. You have to stay on the floor all the time. So this is what the family has gone through. For them that tooth is the body of their father”. Patrice Lumumba is a national hero in his native Democratic Republic of Congo. He became the country's first prime minister at the age of just 35, after it won independence from Belgian rule in June of 1960. But less than a year later, he was overthrown, jailed and killed by factions reportedly supported by Belgium and the US. Now a tooth, believed to have been stolen as a trophy by a Gendarme when his body was destroyed, is being returned to his family and the DRC. Last week the Belgium monarch, King Philippe, expressed his ‘deepest regret' for colonial era abuses – but stopped short of formally apologising or offering reparations.

Après la rumba congolaise, la Sape veut être inscrite au patrimoine de l'humanité

La rumba congolaise, ou la danse du nombril, a été inscrite en décembre 2021 par l'Unesco comme patrimoine culturel immatériel de l'humanité. Les sapeurs des deux rives du fleuve Congo ont salué cette inscription, à Brazzaville, à l'occasion des manifestations culturelles marquant le mois de l'Europe. Désormais, ils souhaitent que la Sape bénéficie également de ce privilège, car elle et la rumba sont liées et se complètent. De notre correspondant à Brazzaville, Ce soir le hall de l'Institut français du Congo a un autre décor, le public le dos tourné à l'entrée principale est réparti sur deux rangées. Le couloir est réservé aux sapeurs de Brazzaville et Kinshasa qui sont en compétition, ils partent du podium où se produit l'orchestre Les Bantous de la Capitale, pour exhiber leurs beaux vêtements. Soudain, Derick Boukaka, membre influent des diables rouges de la Sape, la sélection des sapeurs du Congo, se détache pour nous présenter ce qu'il a arboré. « Aujourd'hui je suis en dépareillé, j'ai une paire de chez Lory Torrenk, j'ai un pantalon Gucci, et j'ai une cravate Pierre Cardin, et j'ai un blazer de chez Richo Pipo de Manuela, et sur la tête j'ai un chapeau Kenzo. » Les sapeurs tiennent le public en haleine pendant des heures, des points leur sont distribués à la fin de la séance. Dans un fond sonore, on peut écouter un tube de Rapha Bounzeki, un artiste musicien Brazzavillois, longtemps confondu à un sapeur, disparu en 2008. Pour Derick Boukaka, la Sape qui a donné lieu à une science nommée « sapologie » a un apport culturel inestimable. « Parce que la Sape au Congo a plus de visibilité que la rumba, que le football, c'est la Sape aussi qui fait dégager l'image, le drapeau tricolore de notre pays. » Il plaide pour que le Sape soit inscrite sur la liste du patrimoine immatériel de l'humanité. « Si les autorités compétentes du Congo pourront penser à ce mouvement, et je pense qu'on peut aussi vendre l'image de notre pays à travers la Sape, parce qu'il y a des pays en Afrique aussi qui vendent leur image à travers leur culture, à travers leurs richesses, or nous on a eu la chance d'avoir le pétrole, d'avoir l'or, et d'avoir la Sape. » C'est aussi le combat d'Yves Sambu, artiste photographe de Kinshasa, qui passe son temps à filmer les sapeurs, pour lui la Sape, patrimoine commun des deux capitales les plus proches au monde mérite une reconnaissance. « Maintenant retroussons nos manches, et pourquoi pas commencer maintenant à travailler ensemble. » Les autorités n'y voient aucun inconvénient, Jean Omer Ntady est conseiller au patrimoine et aux archives au ministère de la Culture. « C'est un engagement, chaque fois nous sommes obligés de travailler comme ça pour faire que les éléments qui font notre force culturelle soient portés au niveau de l'humanité. » L'inscription de la rumba a été un long processus, ça sera certainement le cas pour la Sape qui est son complément,  estiment les sapeurs eux-mêmes.

In the interview, Pope Francis takes on accusations that he is “pro-Putin” and argues that a failure to accept the Second Vatican Council is at the heart of church polarization today. On “Inside the Vatican” this week, host Colleen Dulle and veteran Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell unpack the pope's interview. Speaking about the war in Ukraine, Pope Francis told the editors that World War III had been declared. But what does this mean? Colleen and Gerry examine the pope's rhetorical shift from describing a third world war fought “piecemeal” to a “declared” world war. In the second half of the show, Gerry and Colleen look at the pope's comments on “restorationism,” which Gerry defines as “going back to the past. You don't want the new things; you want things as they were before.” Pope Francis commented to the European editors that there are many such people in the United States, who want to return to a pre-Vatican II era without having ever accepted the council's reforms. “Restorationism,” the pope said, “has come to gag the Council.” Lastly, the hosts discuss the postponement of Pope Francis' scheduled trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan, and what effects the postponement has for people in those countries who were expecting the pope.

Frédéric Van Leeuw: «La dent de Patrice Lumumba est remise à sa famille et non pas à l'État congolais»

La semaine dernière, le roi Philippe de Belgique était en RDC. Un voyage au cours duquel le souverain belge a, à nouveau, exprimé « ses plus profonds regrets » pour les blessures liées à la colonisation du pays. Le 20 juin, nouveau temps fort entre Bruxelles et Kinshasa : les autorités belges vont remettre la dépouille de Patrice Lumumba à sa famille. Une dent lui appartenant a été retrouvée il y a six ans chez la fille d'un policier belge chargé à l'époque de faire disparaître le corps. C'est cette dent qui va être rendue à ses proches. Elle sera restituée par Frédéric Van Leeuw, le procureur fédéral belge. Il est l'invité de RFI. RFI : La dépouille de Patrick Lumumba va donc être restituée ce lundi à sa famille, un geste que ses descendants réclamaient depuis longtemps. Pourquoi cela a-t-il pris autant de temps ? Frédéric Van Leeuw : La date avait déjà été prévue il y a quelques mois, mais ça n'allait pas pour les autorités congolaises parce qu'il fallait aussi quand même une certaine solennité. La dent n'a pas pu accompagner la mission royale, parce que c'est un dossier judiciaire et c'est une exécution d'une décision d'un juge d'instruction de remettre la dent et la dent est remise à la famille et non pas à l'État congolais.  Cette dépouille, c'est donc une dent qui a une histoire terrible. Racontez-nous la façon dont la police, puis la justice en Belgique sont parvenues à mettre la main dessus.   L'histoire au départ, c'est un gendarme belge, Gérard Soete, qui est là-bas au Congo, à qui on demande de faire disparaitre le corps qui avait été enterré sommairement quelques jours avant, juste au moment de l'exécution. Mais les autorités du Katanga ont eu très peur qu'à un certain moment, cet assassinat soit révélé dans la population et provoque des mouvements. Donc, il a fallu faire disparaître le corps avec une cuve d'acide. Et c'est ce que Gérard Soete avec d'autres ont fait. Gérard Soete s'est, quelques années plus tard, vanté d'avoir pris avec lui deux dents et même deux doigts. Puis ce récit est un peu tombé dans l'oubli et est remonté à la surface avec la commission parlementaire importante qui a eu lieu en 2000 suite à un livre d'un historien, Ludo de Witte [« L'assassinat de Lumumba » aux Editions Karthala]. Et dans une interview un peu plus tard, Gérard Soete a rappelé qu'il avait ces deux dents en disant qu'il s'était débarrassé d'une des dents. Et après la plainte qui a été déposée par la famille, à un certain moment la fille de Gérard Soete, qui était entretemps décédé, a montré la dent. Et à ce moment-là, la justice a été recherchée la dent lors d'une perquisition. Depuis lors, je pense que c'est depuis 2016 que cette dent est saisie.  Cette dent est aujourd'hui dans un coffre-fort du parquet fédéral belge que vous dirigez…  Tout à fait. Vu la valeur et le respect dû à ce qui reste finalement de la dépouille de Patrice Lumumba, il fallait que cette dent soit bien protégée. Et donc elle l'est dans un écrin qui a été fabriqué tout spécialement pour la protéger et elle se trouve dans un coffre du parquet fédéral effectivement, puisqu'on voulait éviter qu'elle soit simplement considérée comme une vulgaire pièce à conviction qui se trouverait au greffe du tribunal.  Cette dent va donc être remise ce lundi à sa famille. Comment précisément va se dérouler cette restitution ?  Au début de la cérémonie, il y aura un moment plus intime rien qu'avec la famille. C'est à ce moment-là que je remettrai la dent. Il ne s'agit pas de faire du spectacle ni quoi que ce soit. Et après il y aura une cérémonie plus officielle.  Cette restitution ne marque tout de même pas la fin de l'histoire, car il y a toujours une enquête en cours ouverte en 2011 par la justice belge pour crime de guerre. Où en est cette enquête aujourd'hui ?  L'enquête continue. J'ai justement parlé de la commission parlementaire qui avait eu lieu en 2000. Il y a eu lors de cette commission parlementaire une série d'auditions à huis clos et le juge d'instruction a décidé il y a quelques mois de faire une perquisition au Parlement pour obtenir le contenu de ces auditions qui avaient été faites à huis clos. Actuellement, il y a un tout un débat juridique qui se fait. Les pièces sont sous scellés. Nous avons soutenu, en tout cas en tant que parquet, qu'il n'était justifiable ni légalement ni moralement de garder secrètes les auditions qui ont été faites à huis clos il y a plus de 20 ans. Il y a un point de vue différent qui a été développé au niveau du Parlement et cette question-là doit être tranchée. Le dossier a été plaidé le 1er juin et l'arrêt de la cour d'appel est prévu vers le 14 septembre.  Outre cette perquisition au Parlement fédéral, la juge en charge de l'affaire a-t-elle entrepris d'autres actes ces dernières mois ?  Je ne peux évidemment pas trop m'exprimer là-dessus. Il y a effectivement d'autres devoirs d'enquête dont certains sont connus vis-à-vis des Nations unies et autres pour obtenir l'accès à certaines archives. C'est un dossier très particulier puisqu'on fait une enquête plus de 60 ans après. Quelque part, les preuves matérielles à part justement cette dent n'existent plus vraiment et encore, pour éviter de détruire complétement la dent, il n'y a pas eu d'ADN qui a été faite sur la dent. Donc, c'est un faisceau de présomptions qui fait que nous sommes sûr qu'il s'agit de la dent de Patrice Lumumba, mais il n'y a pas de certitude scientifique par rapport à cela, parce que si on avait prélevé de l'ADN, on aurait détruit complètement la dent. ► À lire aussi : Un héros littéraire nommé… Patrice Lumumba

Bicycles are a symbol of freedom. Women suffragists hopped on bicycles to defy the patriarchy at the turn of the century. A child learning to ride their bike – and finally freeing themselves from their parents' grasp – is an early step towards independence. In 1989, young people streamed into Tiananmen Square on bicycles to protest China's communist government.Bicycles, however, have a complicated history. The early surge in biking's popularity in the late 1800s also meant a surge in demand for rubber. Belgian King Leopold II extracted much of that rubber from Congo, enslaving and killing millions of Africans as he did so.During the pandemic, many people tried to avoid public transportation and get outside. City infrastructure, however, often pits bicyclists against drivers for a place on the road.We explore the history and mystery of the bicycle with Rosen and turn to a bicycle activist for his perspective on the current issues facing cyclists.Want to support 1A?

In June 2014, cases of Ebola were reported in Guinea and the disease began to rapidly spread across the border to Liberia and Sierra Leone. More than 28,000 people became ill with the disease and over 11,000 died. The 2014 outbreak was the first Ebola outbreak in West Africa. According to the World Health Organization, it first appeared in two simultaneous outbreaks in 1976 in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The outbreak in DRC happened in a village near the Ebola River and that's where the illness gets its name. The early symptoms of an Ebola infection include fever, headache, muscle aches and sore throat, according to the World Health Organization. It can be difficult to distinguish between Ebola and the symptoms of malaria, typhoid fever or cholera. Only in later stages do people with Ebola begin bleeding both internally and externally, often through the nose and ears. Dr. Brantly is originally from U.S. but he had arrived in Monrovia, Liberia in October 2013 and he was working at the ELWA hospital at the time of the Ebola outbreak. He had been treating patients with Ebola for several weeks and on July 23, 2014, he woke up feeling ill. He would eventually be given the officially diagnosis; he was ill with Ebola and the U.S. doctor was transported to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. On this episode, Erica Vella speaks Dr. Brantly who shares his experience and she speaks with other with health-care workers who were on the front lines, battling Ebola. She finds out where it came from, why it spread so quickly and how the 2014 outbreak impacted communities in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. — with Files from the Associated Press.
