Patriarchy Workshop Bookings including Poetry

I’m currently delivering workshops in the community on sexism and patriarchy. The intention is for men and women to have a better understanding of each other, to address sexism and misogyny preached to our young men and women which later becomes a barrier when attempting to build our communities, where unaddressed issues only further deteriorate our communities. It is important for us to address prevelant issues based around the conditioning of our young men and women in society and address the barriers in education on the relationship between men and women, defining rape, sexual harassment, domestic violence, discussing the young male perspective of women and how men are controlled emotionally and psychologically by patriarchy whilst there is a bigger system in place.

I intend on holding workshops in youth centres, schools, colleges and in the community with young men and women to get this discussion going. I have written poetry addressing these issues but poetry is not enough to lift people. We need to actively engage with our communities and allow people to participate in healthy debate and get the conversation going in order to have an understanding to prevent further trauma to our brothers and sisters struggling through our societal conditioning. I intend on providing a better opportunity of how one can be deemed an oppressor to women and how to resist that oppression, especially in violent volatile situations. Everything shall be discussed from a post-colonial perspective but to allow young people and women to have a voice. Workshops will address issues around the greater power structure and the symptom of patriarchy which is prevalent in our society with the encouragement of dehumanising and treating women like “bitches and hoes”. I shall share a few spoken word/poetry pieces towards the ends of a workshop.

If you have access to a group of young people through youth work or women or would like to get a few friends together, please contact me to organise a workshop or an event to allow this discussion to go ahead. I am willing to deliver workshops on separate occasions to be sensitive to different age groups and understand the controversy that can occur from dealing with sensitive taboo topics where it may be better advised to deliver separate workshops for both genders, to avoid egoistic debate and to overcome barriers of discomfort. Contact me on shareefa_p@hotmail.com or leave a message below in order to arrange a workshop time and date. I am currently based in London but i’m willing to deliver workshops in England, where covering transports costs can be discussed. It would be brilliant for young people in the community to get involved, share ideas and participate in discussions. If you would like to get involved in the delivery or supporting this independent community project, contact me also. A collective effort in bringing discussions affecting us all to the table is always appreciated.

The Assasination of our brother Malcolm Shabazz, Including Interviews and Speeches

This post is to support Dr W Randy Short from the Black Autonomy Network, his comradMalcolm Shabazzes working on campaigns and the Shabazz family in the United States. Dr W Randy Short was a close brother in the struggle to our late beloved Brother Malcolm Lateef Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X, who was assassinated on the 9th of May 2013. It is or duty in Europe to be supportive at this devastating time and actively support engaging more people who are disengaged. We can only intend on doing our brother Malcolm Shabazz justice by stubbornly refusing to allow his character to be assassinated and to support the continuation of delivering the message he spent the last few years of his life dedicated to, before the United States brutally assassinated him.

Dr W Randy has sent me a list of links and articles he would like our communities here from both Afrikan and Muslim communities, alongside people from colonized lands to read and watch in order to have informed opinions on our late brother Malcolm and not buy any of the pathetic rumours that are currently being spread in order to tarnish his character and his fight for justice when positioning himself on the axis of resistance against white Western imperialist powers.

Every link shared below has been recommended by our brother Dr W Randy Short. I shall be updating this blog piece regularly when delegated to add more information onto as more information becomes clear. Please share this link with collected information far and wide.  Myself and others from communities of people from colonised lands, especially the Afrikan and Muslim community will be willing to engage in discussions if anyone would like to hold screenings on this or hold conference calls with our family in the struggle resisting across the pond.

We have to remember a young brother was taken from the struggle during our lifetime by the FBI, him being the first male heir to Malcolm X making the oppressors even more paranoid and giving them reason to end his life at an early age, before his life goals to contribute to change and resistance were reached.

Here are contact details for Dr W Randy Short who is working on the main campaign to bring those responsible for assassinating our beloved brother, to justice. We must recognise our moral duty and obligation to be supportive in mobilising, whilst refusing to bow our heads and remain silent. Many have lost their lives for the struggle and our brothers death shall not be in vain. No Justice, No Peace.

Brother Malcolm Shabazz and Rev. Dr. Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) agreed to work together to unite African Americans against genocide. She would bring in the churches and he would reach the young people. They agreed on April 26, 2013. Just like his grandfather agreed to work with Dr. King in January  2013 and was killed the following month. This has happened again. Malcolm was vocally anti-eugenics, abortion, and genocide. Look at what he was opposed to. Malcolm was disgusted by the massacre of Black babies by Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia.
