Dre Taylor’s passion for improving the lives of families in the inner city eventually led him to launch Nile Valley Aquaponics, a 100,000 pound Food and Green House Project in the urban core of Kansas City, Missouri located at 29th & Wabash. Fresh vegetables, chickens, and tons of tilapia are growing in the largest aquaponics structure in the country.

Dre Taylor, 35, the great­grandson of a Mississippi sharecropper, was born in the area, moved away, played junior college football, graduated from the University of Missouri and eventually came back to Kansas City with the intent of helping his community. Taylor’s interest in giving back led him to partnering with Lincoln University’s aquaculture department where he studied aquaponics with Will Allen, one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.

In addition to Nile Valley Aquaponics, Taylor also runs a unique mentoring program called Males to Men, a group he founded for boys ages 7 to 17 who work at Nile Valley Aquaponics.


Read the Announcement of the Nationally Coordinated Prisoner Workstoppage for Sept 9, 2016 at https://iwoc.noblogs.org/post/2016/04/01/announcement-of-nationally-coordinated-prisoner-workstoppage-for-sept-9-2016/

Excerpt from statement – Our protest against prison slavery is a protest against the school to prison pipeline, a protest against police terror, a protest against post-release controls. When we abolish slavery, they’ll lose much of their incentive to lock up our children, they’ll stop building traps to pull back those who they’ve released. When we remove the economic motive and grease of our forced labor from the US prison system, the entire structure of courts and police, of control and slave-catching must shift to accommodate us as humans, rather than slaves.

National Prisoner Strike Is Happening Now…Can It Bring An End To Penal Slavery?

A National Prisoner Strike started September 9th, the 45th anniversary of the day that prisoners took over Attica Prison in New York. Many will say how can they strike, they don’t have a job but prisoners do most of the work to keep the prisons they are incarcerated in running. They work in the kitchen, the laundry, in the barbershop, they clean the common areas and cells alike, repair the plumbing, do the carpentry and much much more. The fact is the institutions run on the slave labor of the “duly convicted”. This strike is a demand to end the penal slavery of today’s prison industrial system.

Many well known and profitable private sector industries benefit from labor cheaper than any offshore destination. Some of the consumer goods and services that you buy are produced by prisoners and sold by major corporations like MacDonalds, Wendy’s, Whole Foods, Starbucks, Walmart, Sprint, Verizon, Fidelity Investments, JC Penny’s, KMart, American Airlines, Avis and many many more. You can find out at https://www.popularresistance.org/identifying-businesses-that-profit-from-prison-labor/

The authorities in institutions across the nation have responded to this strike with lock downs, denying phone privileges, denial of visitors, putting strike leaders in isolation, and more. These actions have made it difficult to find out what is happening in these prisons, but information has been filtering out. Today hosts Keith Brown El and Jeff Humfeld are joined by Peter, Brianna and Karl and a striking prisoner of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee of the IWW.


Pythia Peay, author of America on the Couch, returns with a discussion about integrity…or the lack thereof…during our current political season.  Host David Mitchell and Ms Peay will discuss the work of San Francisco Jungian analyst John Beebe.


Brian Steed is a military historian and Mideast specialist at the U. S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth. On this 15th anniversary of 9‐11, Brian will posit that to defeat ISIS, we need to be􀆩er understand their centuries old beliefs, wrapped in a philosophy of violence.
