Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire, was a featured guest on Emanations, a program hosted daily by Bernard White over Community Progressive Radio (CPRMetro.org). Azikiwe gave a comprehensive update on the struggle in Detroit against emergency management, austerity and the forced bankruptcy.
The Pan-African News Wire editor noted that the campaign against emergency management has grown significantly over the last several months. He recounted demonstrations on October 23, November 12 and current plans for December 3 and December 10.
Azikiwe holds that the banks and corporations are at the root of the Detroit economic crisis. The only way to defeat the austerity imposed on Detroit and other cities is to organize workers and community residents to expose the source of the crisis and the need to cancel the debt.
Detroit was targeted by the banks for predatory lending in both housing and municipal finance. The figure of $18-22 billion in debt is fraudulent and most be rejected by the masses.
Azikiwe is interviewed for 45 minutes during the first and second hours of Emanations.
