Michael Chege and his friends patrol their neighbourhood in Athens, Greece, most nights.

it’s a familiar story. economic downturn hits a country and reactionary activity starts to multiply. across Europe, the recession has adhered to this with right-wing governments being elected to office and such rhetoric finding familiar freedoms. my thoughts do drift to thoughts of the obstacles facing brothas and sistas in such locations as Poland, Spain, Belgium and the like. it’s encouraging therefore to hear of resistance to such problems
click on the link to be informed of brotha Michael Chege, a Kenyan father who has basically had enough of being a target of far right Grecian economic frustrations. read and watch how him and other out posted African’s are coming together to fight back against right wing malevolence, funnily enough, calling themselves the Black Panthers in the process. we’ll end with some words from brotha Michael
“I’m not afraid of this neo-Nazi, stupid, idiotic group…In WW2, they were crushed. In WW3, we will exterminate them out of the face of the earth.
“I am a member of the Black Panthers and everybody knows that. So I am giving them (Golden Dawn) a straight warning – don’t mess with black people, anyhow. And I mean it.”
The Almighty’s Blessings
