audioSchool shooting in U.S.; Drug-dealing HSBC banksters go free
From , aired Dec 23, 2012
Talk live with African Socialist International Chairman Omali Yeshitela and a live panel discussing current events, including the killing of 20 children at an elementary school in Connecticut, and the recent exposure of more drug-dealing on the part of major imperialist banking institutions. As reported in Uhuru News, "HSBC (Hong Kong Shanghai Bank Corporation) was founded in 1865 as Britain's main drug pusher in Asia, which, along with the trade in African people and the colonial domination of much of the world, is the basis for the wealth of Britain, the U.S. and world capitalism today. While one out of every eight people incarcerated in the entire world is an impoverished African in the U.S., the HSBC bank simply paid $1.9 billion to the cash-strapped U.S. government and charges were dropped. The $1.9 billion is just a drop in the bucket of HSBC's 173 billion dollars in shares on the stock market and assets of 2.6 trillion dollars. "
