Crocodile tears over passenger treatment  

While there is a great deal of outrage and coverage over the United Airlines video  there seems to be a lack of  awareness about people in this country who suffer far worse treatment while on British aircraft . Jimmy Mubenga was on a scheduled British Airways flight. He was treated so badly by the G4S security guards deporting him that he died . Initially the CPS did not  bring charges against the guards but after a major campaign by the family, the guards were finally brought to court, see timeline HERE . In court the judge decided to exclude a number of racists texts from the guards as they 'did not have any real relevance'. The guards were found not guilty of manslaughter.

 Since then, rather than deport people on scheduled flights and have other passengers as witnesses, there is now a preference to fill a whole plane with deportees, see examples HERE and HERE. With mass deportations via private jets, no one  can return to complain or give evidence.  Women, many of whom were black, were sexually abused by guards at detention centres before being deported. The situation was so bad that when the United Nations Special Reporter on Violence Against Women asked to visit Yarls Wood  detention centre in 2015 they were refused entry, details HERE
Watch Channel 4's undercover video on the abuse of women at Yarls Woo d and charter flights  HERE

If you wish to get involved Sara Calloway of Women of Colour and Crossroads Women's Centre has been doing major work on the sexual abuse and deportations of women in detention centres

Hollywood has a habit of borrowing stories from other cultures but representing them as their own: Disney's Lion King was based upon an orginal African folk tale, Christopher Nolan's Inception borrows heavily from Japanese anime movie Paprika, James Cameron's Avatar is very similar to Studio Giblhi's Princess Mononoke. In this interactive film analysis of Dr Strange  we will cover...(click image above for more info)

Exodus Gods and Kings Movie breakdown, Part Two
Sunday 7th May 3-6pm  West Kensington

Many people are upset by the all white casting of films set in ancient Africa. They are less able to explain the extensive and insidious mis-representation of African culture; history, architecture and art which occur in every frame of those movies. This is just as damaging but often goes unnoticed. It affects people who have not even seen the movie due to the massive promotional advertising that comes with such films, the brainwashing continues indirectly and subconsciously. We will cover:

  • Scene by scene comparisons of Gods and Kings and actual African history with dates and comparative European history
  • The actual African identity of Gods and Pharoahs in the film
  • The Hollywood perversion of Kemetic Spirituality
  • The power of stereotypes
  • The people behind this film, similar films and reasons for the whitewash
  • Psychological warfare: reasons, examples and effects
  • Did slavery build the pyramids, who were the Hebrews ?
  • How we can use such films to our advantage: flipping the script and un-brainwashing

Holborn area 

(This event follows on from our over-subscribed  previous session on 31st March which ended with Sybil Phoenix in the 1970's)

In recognition of Black Women's erasure from history and the coming Afrofurism, Women, Spirituality and Media all day event (Saturday 17th June 2 to 6pm at BFI Southbank) this presentation will provide the names and achievements of those Black women born or resident here that fought against British racism over the last 300 years.

When 'Aborigines' became human (1967)
Two films followed by discussion on White Supremacy
Saturday 20th May 2pm  @bfisouthbank 

To commemorate 50 years since 'Aborigines' became human under Australian law (1967) we host two amazing films, one drama and one documentary, about Indigenous Australians. The films screen back-to-back from 2-4.30pm in the cinema at BFI Southbank. Tickets for the films available now from HERE

The films will be followed by a presentation and Q&A on global white supremacy for which entry is free

Drama, Rabbit Proof Fence: Until the 1970's. Aboriginal children of mixed race were taken by force from their families and raised in training 'schools' that would prepare them for lives domestic servants. More than a century after slavery was abolished , a white 'democracy' was still practicing racism of the most cruel description. This is a true story, based on the book by Doris Pilkington of three children and their heroic resistance to oppression.The thousands of children affected are known today as the Stolen Generations. 


Documentary, The Redfern Story The Australian National Black Theatre was established in 1971, a few years after the 1967 referendum that recognised indigenous Australians as human beings. In the early 1970s, the Sydney suburb of Redfern hosted over 20,000 Aboriginal people. 
A small group of untrained, but passionate and talented activists came together and became a focal point for civil rights activism using theatre. The Redfern Story documents the efforts made through activism and theatre to bring the cause of Black people to public notice, as a first step towards gaining land rights and better treatment. With theatre, dance and song as powerful political tools. 

Coming soon!  African Odysseys  film event Afrofuturism, Spirituality, Activism and Media. Saturday 17 June 2 to 6pm. A whole day of films about Black women as Goddesses  plus Q & A.
