Our mainstream media may ignore the majority of human rights violations in favor of diversion-media, but we have the power to spread the word about what's really happening in the world, in our efforts to power solutions.

This practice of posting campaign links was something Sir Wayne offered as a service in the early days of the 'Roots-Of-Humanity' groups' 'Am I Not Human' campaign.

Am I Not Human: The Making Of Girl Child Soldiers

The systematic dehumanization the world over has targeted its efforts heavily on females, including child females, who have been subjected to rape, forced witness of the murders of their loved ones, and forced service in para-military operations, often funded by Western interests who benefit from the creation of in-fighting in lands with resources desired. Liberia being just one of them.

I offer the following video in the spirit of humanity, as well in caution. Without unity, and the building of better systems for 'the common people', this could take place anywhere in the world. Our 'leaders' have proven repeatedly that there is no true care in Western governments for its people, the natural world, or anything outside of profit and their profit-sharing corporate friends. It is beyond time to wake up as global people, and especially those amongst us with means to make a differnce and raise awareness. We can not turn away from what is happening to our children, our sisters, or our brothers the world over in redeveloping countries, anymore than we can ignore what is happening on the soil we currently reside on. We *are* one, regardless of the illusions that would suggest we're somehow 'safe'.

The destruction of senseless wars has struck peoples in the redeveloping world, in the middle of the night oftentimes, when the people are most vulnerable, without warning, leaving children parentless, and without protection or resources; reducing them to prey for soulless predators who would make soldiers of them.

'Sometimes we had no food, so we'd look for potato leaves in the bush.'

Coastal Governors Call for Prayer on June 27th

Gulf State Governors Call for Prayer- not Repentance:
The waters are troubled and not yet healed

By Eddie Griffin

Friday, June 25, 2010

From the Plano Examiner: “UPDATE! More Governor’s Proclaim Call For Prayer This Sunday

67 days into the Gulf oil spill crisis, four affected State Governors have now issued proclamations declaring this Sunday, June 27th as A Day Of Prayer.

Texas Governor Rick Perry stated-" It seems right and fitting that the people of Texas should join with their fellow Gulf Coast residents and others across the country and around the world to thank God, seek his wisdom for ourselves and our leaders, and ask him for his merciful intervention and healing in this time of crisis."

Alabama Governor Bob Riley said-"Throughout our history, Alabamians have humbly turned to God to ask for His blessings and to hold us steady during times of struggle. This is certainly one of those times."

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour wrote-" Prayer allows us the opportunity to reflect and seek guidance, strength, comfort and inspiration from Almighty God and citizens of Mississippi are urged to pray....."

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal declared-"June 27th as a Statewide Day of Prayer for perseverance."

COMMENTARY by Eddie G. Griffin (BASG)

As surely as I write, I knew the day would come when they, collectively, would call upon the God of Heaven to heal their waters. So, I ask: “Who shall pray, non-believers?” They are all non-believers, because they say one thing and mean another.

Only yesterday, it seems, Governor Rick Perry was calling the BP disaster an Act of God, now he request prayer: to wit, “thank God, seek his wisdom, ask for his merciful intervention, and healing.” Yet he rejects wisdom and denies mercy. Why didn’t he pardon Timothy Cole before his life expired in prison? Oh, but he is so sad that the State of Texas allowed an innocent, college student, and veteran die in prison like a dog. And, the blood of Jamie Scott is now upon the head of Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour.

Let me admonish the governors that the oil is here, and it is here to stay for a long while. It is not an inevitable. It is a fact. Leaders accept facts. Prayer, in this case, is an act of desperation, in lieu of the facts. They want a miracle for nothing, without even having to pay the price of their sins.

Merciful Intervention and Healing: What the Governor of Texas ask, is this not what we poured out our tears over? Is this not why we begged and pleaded with Governor Haley Barbour for mercy and compassion upon humanity, for the release Jamie and Gladys Scott from prison? For an $11 robbery in which no one was hurt, these two young mothers, with no prior criminal records and had no direct part in the crime, were sent to prison in the State of Mississippi, sentenced to double life… seventeen years ago. [See Newsweek story]

Now both women who went to prison at ages 19 and 22 years old are grandmothers, and Jamie is dying from kidney failure. Both have consistently maintained their innocence. And, there is no evidence or proof that either took direct part in the robbery, nor heretofore, either had prior criminal record. Why then is the Governor of Mississippi so hard-hearted in this case.

How can they have the audacity to pray for mercy, when they are so unwilling to show mercy? And anyway, June 27th is already reserved as a Day of Blogging for Justice by ROOTS of HUMANITY, and some of us will be blogging for Justice on behalf of the Scott Sisters.

Oil for Justice in Mississippi


Long overdue Justice may be coming to Mississippi… in the form of oil upon the pristine Gulf casino beaches

There comes a time when a man becomes so angry and frustrated that there is only one place to appeal: And, that is Heaven.


I, Eddie Griffin, will not eat or sleep until there is Justice for the Scott Sisters who are in prison, in the State of Mississippi. I may eat tomorrow because Justice may be on its way, in the form of oil upon the pristine Gulf casino beaches where the sin of sins thrives: Injustice.

In 1994, the State of Mississippi sentenced Jamie and Gladys Scott to consecutive double-life terms each for two counts of armed robbery they did not commit. They did not have prior criminal records, vigorously maintained their innocence, approximately $11 was said to have been netted, no one was harmed or injured and no weapon was ever recovered. Witnesses testified that they were coerced and threatened to lie on the Scott Sisters and their unbelievable convictions rest entirely on a combination of contradictory, coerced, and potentially perjured testimony by the victims and two other people charged with the crime who were offered lighter sentences for their cooperation.

For me, it is not an issue of guilt or innocence. It is the magnitude of Crime and Punishment, where punishment is so excessive that it can be called OPPRESSION.

Eddie Griffin (BASG) quietly and discretely petitioned government officials in the State of Mississippi to recognize the legitimate grievances in disparities of justice being practiced inside the courtrooms. Mississippi is not the only southern state that still practices Race Justice.

Our words have had little consolation. But there is some comfort to know that Mississippi will cry to Heaven when the oil hit the coast.

And, when they cry to Heaven and utter of many prayers. Then I would hope and pray for Mercy, first for the Scott Sister, and then to the State of Mississippi, and not in the reverse order.

I need no approval or authority or consent of men. This is personal.
