New Abolitionists Radio seeks to educate listeners to the glaring fact that slavery was never abolished and is still practiced by the state and federal governments constituting the United States of America along with multi-national corporations. The main purpose of this program to agitate for an end to 21st Century Slavery and Human Trafficking by any means necessary. The radio program is an extension of the group Move To Abolish 21st Century Slavery.
Today is the May 10th 2017 broadcast of New Abolitionists Radio and we hear that within trumps DC dictatorship The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves.
On this day in 1869, the presidents of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads met in Promontory, Utah, to drive a ceremonial last spike into a rail line connecting their railroads. Thus making transcontinental railroad travel possible for the first time in U.S. history. Every part of it was made possible through slavery, convict leasing and free labor. Remember that the next time you ride the rails.
Our list of potential stories to cover include:
