INTERVIEW – Gracie Horne of All My Relations located on E. Franklin in Minneapolis, Minnesota http://www.allmyrelationsarts.com/


Mitakuye Oyasin (All Are Related) is a phrase from the Lakota language. It reflects the world view of Interconnectedness held by the Lakota people.[1]

The phrase itself, and the underlying belief of interconnectedness with all creation, is a part of man Yankton Sioux prayers,[2] and is found in use among Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people.[3][4]

The phrase translates as “all my relatives,” “we are all related,” or “all my relations.” It is a prayer of oneness and harmony with all forms of life: other people, animals, birds, insects, trees and plants, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys.[2]

038 – People Rise Up Radio – Prisoner Solidarity Part 1

Over our past 37 episodes we have often spoken of political prisoners. Sometimes those facing the injustice system have been our friends in real life. Always, they are our comrades.

For our first show back, we decided to take a look back and provide updates on prisoners we have featured on past shows.

This episode is part one of two that begins to express our love and rage for our comrades who have been captured by the injustice system.

We speak with ex-prisoner Cecily McMillan of Occupy Wall Street on her experiences with Occupy, the injustice system, and Rikers Island.

We also have a clip provided by Lucy Parks of the #FloodWallStreet12.

And please, in the name of all that is scared – DON’T MAKE PRISONERS TO BEGIN WITH! Learn about Jury Nullification

This episode features the music of Marx Sick Mind https://soundcloud.com/marxsickmind/no-justice-just-us
And Anne Feeney who will be a guest on a future show soon!

We also give an extensive update on revolutions worldwide that occurred these past seven months.

We also have a clip from CounterSpin – Janine Jackson speaking with Chris King of the St. Louis American, the oldest African American daily in the United States, about Ferguson.
