Rage Against the Machine Fans Speak!


  • Wes provides the facts:

    'Action for reaction, singing what's at stake' Do RATM listeners want to kill the system that fucking dissed us.  This is a call to all people!  Activism is about contacting the oppressed in your area and FUCK SHIT UP!

    Know your fucking enemies.  Where t-shirts that fuck the system, network, write to the fascists, it's meant to be a  free country aint it? Did you know 160 000 people died in 5 seconds at hiroshima? Did the Germans kill as many as quick?

    Did you know 33 million africans curretly suffer from HIV and they are 1 percent of the drug market, do who cares right??  Did you know that rascism implies that there are different races when the ONLY fifference between black and white is the amount of Vitaman A found in the skin. Rascism was born when Euro-Centric imperialists began to use blacks from africa as slaves (they couldn't mingle into the wider public and could easily be perpetrated as inferior by European masters).  The truth is, we are all one race and the system oppresses us all.  Did you know 7 companies control all the worlds mass media?  Those fucking american movies which potray the american military or presidents as heroic, where they save the planet, galaxy, universe etc. (independance day, soldier, even star wars etc.). If there was a movie with Boris Yeltsin saving the planet, or a Russian soldier, would it be propaganda (you move when the set commands ya!) Quit bowing to the flag and fight the system.  Did you know your clothes, stereo,  etc are probably made by oppressed children in China, Burma etc.  Read a magazine.  How many ads? Propaganda? 'They' want your living standards to go up and up so you buy more products. Please help me.  The underground group 'Tender Loving System Killas' needs more of a network.  Needs YOUR support to fight the mind killers. Humans have no natural predators other than themselves, we have lived in a BULLSHIT fear for too long.  Contact cwalton@octa4.net.au for/with any information.  Brothers in arms>

    FACTS:  Domestic Violence: 20% of emergency room patients are women subjected to battering.
    One out of every seven wifes is a victim of marital rape.
    Three to four million women are beaten in their own homes each year in the U.S.

    According to the Federal Reserve Board in 1983: 2% of U.S. families owned the following:

    • 20% of all real estate
    • 50% of all privately held stocks
    • 39% of all taxable bonds
    • 70% of all non taxable bonds
    • 33% of all business assets
    • 30% of all liquid assets

    According to the U.S. Census of 88/89:

    • Between 1980 and 1988 the income share taken by the upper 20% of American families rose from 41.6% to 44%; the highest ever recorded.
    • The lowest 20% of U.S. families recieved 4.6%
    • Household income for these families has dropped more than 10% since 69.
    • The top 1 percent of U.S. families hold 11 percent of national income.
    • 20% of american children are growing up in poverty.
    • 44% of these children are black
    • 36% are hispanic
    • 13% of U.S. families live below the poverty line.  Over half of these are 'with no father present'

    Know your history: 'Land lords and power whores on my people they took turns.'

    • Number of people displaced world-wide from their lands: 150 million
    • Number of languages in the U.S. before 1492: 1000
    • Today: 200
    • 60-70 million Indians in North and south america: 5 million by 1900 (holocaust muthafuckers)
    • in U.S.: 5 million native indians by 1900: 250 000
    • 4% of the world's population is indigenous.
    • Australia: (Aborigines) 300 000 in 1780, 60 000 by 1900
    • Congo: 8-12 million from 1900 to 1921 dead.

      Did you know that the U.S. and Russia competed for economic and military world dominance. NOTHING to do with political ideology.  In 1948, at the same time as the UN was established, a sattelite system called echelon was established by a secret military intelligence alliance between U.S, U.K. and Australia.  It was unveiled by the Australian Minister for Defence earlier this year, but if you live in the U.S, you probably didn't know that.  The echelon sattelite intercepted 2.1 million private phone calls in 1998.  They have targeted environmentalists, black nationalists, feminists, and pro-gay rights groups in their secret oppression.

      Are we gonna stand for this SHIT!!
      'How long? not long. Cause what you reap is what you sow'
      So sick of complacence NOW!
      fight on brothers.  Fuck the system,  our freedom is at stake.
