Female genital mutilation: Woman arrested at Heathrow
9 May 2014 
_________________________________
A woman has been arrested at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of conspiracy to commit female genital mutilation (FGM).

The 38-year-old was arrested at 18:30 BST on 8 May after she arrived at the west London airport on a flight from Sierra Leone.

A 13-year-old Sierra-Leonean girl travelling with the woman was taken into the care of social services.

The woman, who was born in Sierra Leone, is being held in custody at a west London police station.

Officers said the teenage girl was a relative of the arrested woman, but they were not disclosing how they were related.

A Nigerian woman, who officers believe could be a victim of trafficking, was also taken into the care of social services. Her age has not been established but she is believed to be about 18 or 19 years of age, police said.

An investigation has been launched by the Border Force into the suspected trafficking, which is not related to the FGM offences.

'Child abuse'

The arrests follow a week-long initiative by the Met Police, Border Force and National Crime Agency at Heathrow Airport aimed at preventing and detecting FGM.

Officers spoke to 36 people who had arrived on two flights from Nigeria and Liberia, via Sierra Leone.

    Sam Greenlee, Novelist And Author Of ‘The Spook Who Sat By The Door’ Dies In Chicago

    Poet and novelist Sam Greenlee has died in Chicago at the age of 83.

    Greenlee was best known for his 1969 novel “The Spook Who Sat by the Door,” later adapted into a political drama movie. Close friend and cast member in the movie, Pemon Rami, says Greenlee died early Monday.

    Greenlee was one of the first African Americans to join the U.S. foreign service. From 1957-1965, he worked for the U.S. Information Agency, serving in Iraq, Pakistan, Indonesia and Greece.

    "The Spook Who Sat by the Door" tells the story of a black CIA agent who becomes a revolutionary training young Chicago blacks for a violent rebellion. His other works include "Baghdad Blues," in which he describes witnessing the 1958 revolution that brought down Iraq’s British-backed monarchy.

    "

    When we were growing up in Harlem our demoralizing series of landlords were Jewish, and we hated them. We hated them because they were terrible landlords, and did not take care of the building. A coat of paint, a broken window, a stopped sink, a stopped toilet, a sagging floor, a broken ceiling, a dangerous stairwell, the question of garbage disposal, the question of heat and cold, of roaches and rats—all questions of life and death for the poor, and especially for those with children—we had to cope with all of these as best we could. Our parents were lashed to futureless jobs, in order to pay the outrageous rent. We knew that the landlord treated us this way only because we were colored, and he knew that we could not move out.

    The grocer was a Jew, and being in debt to him was very much like being in debt to the company store. The butcher was a Jew and, yes, we certainly paid more for bad cuts of meat than other New York citizens, and we very often carried insults home, along with the meat. We bought our clothes from a Jew and, sometimes, our secondhand shoes, and the pawnbroker was a Jew—perhaps we hated him most of all. The merchants along 125th Street were Jewish—at least many of them were; I don’t know if Grant’s or Woolworth’s are Jewish names—and I well remember that it was only after the Harlem riot of 1935 that Negroes were allowed to earn a little money in some of the stores where they spent so much.

    Not all of these white people were cruel—on the contrary, I remember some who were certainly as thoughtful as the bleak circumstances allowed—but all of them were exploiting us, and that was why we hated them.

    Sugar Cane Alley (French: Rue Cases-Nègres) is a 1983 film directed by Euzhan Palcy. It is set in Martinique in the 1930s, where Blacks working sugarcane fields were still treated harshly by the White ruling class. It is based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Joseph Zobel.

    BY MARY BETH KOAETH

    "Around the eastern slopes of Mount Kenya, a 92-year-old man named Japhlet Thambu has a tea farm. I had the opportunity to visit his farm with my friend and colleague, Laura Lee Huttenbach, who has written Mr. Thambu’s biography, forthcoming from Ohio University Press in Fall 2014. In the 1950s, Mr. Thambu (aka “the General”) led an uprising against British colonial rule that became known as the Mau Mau Rebellion. The fight eventually led to his country’s independence, which just celebrated its fiftieth anniversary while we were there on December 12th.

    As Laura Lee conducted interviews, I documented the General’s home and surrounding areas for the book. The images I captured in Meru, Kenya did not conform to the portrayal of Africa I had seen in Western media. The stories I heard from Mr. Thambu and Laura Lee were equally unfamiliar. The landscape was lush, wet, and colorful. Every home offered us tea and food. People’s hospitality and hard work were just two of their greatest, yet most common, virtues. Through writing and photography about this place, Laura Lee and I hope to add another layer to the international dialogue surrounding Kenya and, by extension, Africa.”
