I've just listened to the last and
emotionally charged speech made by Martin Luther King. Hearing first hand the
power and rage of one of the foremost fighters for progress of the twentieth
century is a real gift, and it came courtesy of Resistance MP3 (link above).
This is a really excellent site bringing together all kinds of spoken political
speeches - not simply
"I have a dream"
Luther King, Jr Date: 28-08-1963), but also Malcom X's
Last Speech, Chomsky on
Corporate Media Radio, TV & the Information
Arundhati Roy on the
Business Of War
and the brilliant Jeremy Hardy,
How To Work.
The range is really excellent.
Having been developed by an SWP member there are a large number of sessions from
Marxism over the years. For example Pete Green on
(1985), Pat Stack on
Just Say No To The War On Drugs
(2003), Mark Steel on
The French Revolution,
Part 2, (2002), and the
human rights lawyer Louise Christian on
Guantanamo Bay, 2003.
You'd be mistaken in thinking that
the contents is all SWPish though. What about Michael Albert
Part3, Mike Marqusee on
Muhammad Ali and
Questions to Mike, or
Age Of Consent?
I really wish there were more sites
with this kind of resource - and it would also be good if more people both used
this site and sent in MP3s they have collected from the broad range of speakers
in the movement to create a really vibrant library for the left. I also believe
that the webmaster (God I hate that term) needs your internet space, if you have
any, to help store the huge volume of files you can find on the site.
