This track features the indigenous Krikati people who live in Maranhão,Brazil . They were involved in direct action resistance against state authorities when IR recorded them on their territory in Brazil.The lyrics which are in the indigenous language Je ,means" The resistance underground continues " when translated into english. This track "Krikati Empowerment Mix" was part of a larger collaborative project done in 2009: IR 14 Direct Action Dubmissions (available as a Free Dub download at www.dubdem.com.br). The collaboration featured the dub mixing techniques of Jamaican studio production legend Steve Stanley (best known for his work with Black Uhuru, Tom Tom Club, Grace Jones and more), the Detroit techno frequencies of Underground Resistance’s Mad Mike Banks, the militant basslines and tabla samples of Aniruddha Das, and resistance vocals from the Indigenous Krikati people of Brazil.

We send this out to the people of west papua who are experiencing current modern day colonisation Indonesian transmigration Let's rewind in time When our melanin Became a synomn for evil under those who would have us despise ourselves To further their own selfish methods of exploitation Domination Subjugation From this poison there was no rapid wake up Abandoned abundance Life turned into ever sharper cruelties We see you Those with Fidelity to those who spit on you Dirtied with the ash of the oppressors context Those who killed their own mind were spared their body A people deaf to purpose are lost From maafa to present day Chagos islands The poison still continues today West Papua Highlanders suffer As phosphorus dropped from the air Our ancestors cry out Where are the guardians of the way Where is the respect for life today Where are the people content with the simplicity of their lives Where are the people at ease with silience  A people deaf to purpose are lost Hurrying on the rush to destruction The noise the hypnotised zombies make Transmigration policy designed to displace us But our spirit knows The land is ours Not by murder ,theft By way of Violence Or any other type of trickery This land is ours! This has always been our land Where we began With its sweet waters of welcome Here we continue to flow from And it is here we return to Foundation restoration Joining earth and sky again This is what we fight for This is what we sacrifice for Where are the guardians of the way Where are the people content with the simplicity of their lives Where are the people at ease with silience A people sure of the past Unhurried by the present A future where the unadorned present is cherished The way is creation Avoiding the temptations to just become takers Reciprocity the key word in any deed Healers seers imaginers rememberers utterers Called to link memory with prophecy Called to pass on the truth of our origins Called to transmit dub visions of purpose To those struggling for survival The way is creation The beautiful music of revolt The utterers transmitting seen visions of purpose Midnight voices from the source In memory of greg young ing As bonus tracks as tools for djs we are including both the english and amharic accapella vocals for this track.

Anarchist Africa Lyrics sometimes its necessary to question. the paradigms that have been implanted in our minds so we ask you to be pensive as opposed to defensive those who seek to reclaim our African glory so often put centralised african kingdoms like kemet mali kush at the center of their story name checking kings and queens to add to the sheen but Africa was more than those anarchist examples more common than we suppose in fact these centralised kingdoms were a minority instead we can look at the igbo a federation of autonomous communities without kings queens chiefs dont shake your head in disbelief at one point 4 million people organised into 2000 separate villages should the presence and existence of a Kingdom, empire, nation or state radiating immense material wealth be the yardstick we use to contemplate our self worth for this time we spend on earth are we not detracting from those who did not choose to chase that particular vision of glory? Are we not detracting from African indigenous peoples who chose instead to humbly respect and flow with the earth acting as caregivers of this land on which we stand! Many will acknowledge on our African continent we live within imposed colonial boundaries artificial state constructs Geographic lines drawn by others which interfere with people's lives while simultaneously being a constant cause of strife most African peoples were stateless prior to colonialism. this stateless presence often referred to as a sign of our so-called underdevelopment a barometer of lower intelligence but what if it was a conscious rejection of Kingdoms, empires, nations, states, And other political forms of centralized hierarchy refusing to live a life of subjugation insisting on African mutual aid created by those unafraid of social living, communal living. Peoples like The Shona of Zimbabwe, the Mano of Ivory Coast, the Kusaasi of Ghana, those of the highlands of Madgascar and other African peoples with anti-authoritarian philosophies of living together yes indeed time to reshape the historical algorithm do your on research reach your own conclusion and always be ready to shatter any illusions as we challenge the framework we ask you to be pensive as opposed to being defensive sometimes its necessary to question the paradigms that have been implanted in our minds
