US militarizing Africa, AU summit, George Orwell’s birthday, modern-day eugenics

Abby Martin talks to Emira Woods, co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at IPS, about Obama’s recent Africa tour, the recent Africa summit in Ethiopia and the dangers surrounding the pentagon’s militarization of the continent. Abby then remarks on the 110th birthday of George Orwell, British visionary and author of ‘1984’, highlighting the book’s nightmarish prophecy of a dystopian future, in the context of the modern day surveillance state. Finally, an interview with Randy Short, president of the Anti Depo-Provera Clergy Coalition, about the dangers associated with administering this form of birth control, and his view that the drug is being used as a form of modern-day eugenics against minority populations.
