Update from Sierra Leone on Nov. 13, 2009
It's the third day here in Sierra Leone and things are going well.
The mosquitos are relentless here. Of course, the mosquito problem could easily be solved if the foul neocolonial government were interested. But all it takes is a quick look at the conditions of the roads—or better yet, the lack thereof—and it is clear to see that these sellout chumps ain't in the least bit interested in solving any problems for the people.
We're preparing to travel to Lungi to pick up the Chairman and his entourage from the airport.
We just picked up Chairman Omali Yeshitela from the airport. Interestingly enough, one of the Africans working in customs recognized the Chairman, having read one of the Chairman's books before. Needless to say, they had no issues in customs.
But when we got outside and I began video recording the Chairman's arrival, I was almost seized by police. Apparently, since the airport was privately sold to the British, picture taking has been outlawed there. The African petty bourgeois rulers are giving everything to our oppressors. They'd sell their own children to the imperialists if they'd gain something from it.
We've arrived safely back to where we are staying. Now to prepare for tomorrow's press conference…And so it begins.
