In the beginning of the speech, one of the organizers asks specifically if all recording erquipment could remain off. Obviously this was disregarded. The reasons that media was not allowed was because the school/organizers felt that if they invited any media they would have to be FAIR and invite ALL media. |
If we are to recognize our enemies and pioint them out and actively work against them, we are going to have to be able to pick and choose our allies. Naturally corporate media should be told to fuck off, because they have demonstrated daily that they cannot be responsible to the truth, yet they can be responsible to the monetary interests in the economically run world.
This audio is just the speech, there is a questions and answers section after that that will be made available soon, but this is addressed in a question then. Ward said something to the effect that media could not quote one sentence that he had uttered correctly, and that was why he was against having media present. One of the organizers admitted that Reed was taping the speech and that if you would agree to play it in its entirety, and have permission from Ward, you could get a copy of the audio.
This audio has been recorded by someone that beleives in independant media, beleives that we can be the media and tell the truth, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US. I also beleive that Ward Churchill has a very necessary message to get out there and that he has a certain eloquence that reaches people. Becuase of this, it is a shame that this audio would otherwise be regulated. This audio is made available, the speech in its entirety (in four pieces for uploading purposes), for people to hear these words that Ward says and hopefully to become radicalized by them and hear what he is really saying.
The enemy is clear to us, we have the means to overtake our enemy. This will not be a painless or bloodless fight, power will not give power over without some clear convincing. No more daily struggle to pay the rent, lets have a daily struggles to take our lives and the mechanisms of production back into our own hands as we begin to reclaim this land, and start to take our lives back into our own hands.
