And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola,
Have been toppled,
Utterly destroyed -
Well, everywhere is war -
Me say war.
In July 1977, Marley was found to have malignant melanoma in a football wound on his right hallux (big toe). Marley refused amputation, citing worries that the operation would affect his dancing, as well as the Rastafarian belief that the body must be "whole"
Bob Marley, one of the world's best-known reggae performers, and three other persons were shot December 3rd when seven gunmen burst onto the grounds of Marley's home in Kingston, Jamaica, where he and his band, the Wailers, were rehearsing. Miraculously, amid a shower of bullets, there were no fatalities.
In November 1976, the Rasta icon Bob Marley was wounded when his home in Jamaica was attacked by a squad of men wielding automatic weapons. While convalescing in a guarded encampment in the Blue Mountains outside Kingston, Marley was visited by a man claiming to be part of a film crew, and bearing a gift: a pair of boots. The visitor was Carl Colby, the son of former CIA director William Colby...
"LEE: People came by his house. There were always people going in and out. Someone gave Bob a pair of boots. He put his foot in and said "Ow!" A friend got in there - you know how Jamaicans are. He said,"let's get in here" - in the boot, and he pulled a piece of copper wire out. It was embedded in the boot.
A.C.: Do you believe it was radioactive?
LEE: I didn't think so at the time, but I've always had my suspicions because Marley later broke his toe playing soccer, and when the bone wouldn't mend, the doctors found that the toe had cancer. The cancer metastasized throughout his body..."
" He was tortured toward the end of his life, the last 6 months of his life he was in the hands of a Nazi doctor. In fact, Dr. Issells, who was supposedly treating Marley may have saved his life if he was a legitimate doctor, was in fact starving him and shoving long needles through his body, and that kind of has nothing to do with cancer treatment. That's the bahviour of an SS officer, and that's what the doctor was."
No immediate symptoms, but long-term risk of chest and abdominal cancers and lung diseases. Smokers are at higher risk of developing asbestos-induced lung cancer.
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer affecting the abdominal cavity, chest cavity, and the region surrounding the heart. Due to its uncommon nature, mesothelioma is typically difficult to diagnose and treat. It has been connected with exposure to asbestos, a material formerly present in many work environments. Only about 3,000 individuals are diagnosed annually.
Individuals with a history of extended asbestos exposure are at the highest risk for developing malignant mesothelioma.
Ironically enough, one site on the Net devoted to Bob Marley ( www.7mac.com... ), disagrees with Dr. Taubman, and asks: "DID THE CIA CAUSE MARLEY'S DEATH IN 1981 FROM CANCER?" The discussion concludes: "At least 9 years before Bob Marley's death to melanoma cancer, the capability of induced cancer in laboratory animals is reported to have been a fait accompli."
According to Hatch's article, the "stated aim of the program
was to organize experiments aimed at finding cancer-causing
viruses." Hatch described the program as such:
Potentially cancer-causing viruses were collected, grown
in huge amounts, and distributed through the VCP; thousands
of animals were infected experimentally, and the aerosol
distribution of carcinogenic viruses was studied.
"... It was noted in the tests that the application of carcinogens does NOT always produce a malignancy.... It is noted that the methylcholanthrene failed to give a 100% result" (Mary, Ferrie & the Monkey virus, p. 193). The researcher, Haslem reports, "had better results with merasptopterin, aminopterin, anyivin, magnesium tracinate" (p. 194).
Manley and his party were concerned with establishing a framework for society, which would allow Jamaicans to free themselves from the psychology of dependence, the damaging legacy of colonialism, and slavery. (Floyd, 1979)
In the 1976 election, the PNP campaigned against oppression, imperialism, and capitalism, strong attempts were made to include the urban poor, blue-collar workers, youth, and the unemployed and underemployed in politics.
Philip Agee, former CIA officer (as interviewed in the DVD Marley documentary, "Rebel Music") confirms that the CIA was supplying guns and anti-PNP propaganda to the conservative JLP. (Some Jamaican's began calling Seaga "CIAga.")
In 1976 Marley was approached and agreed to play a concert entitled ‘Smile Jamaica’ which had been organized by the Government of Jamaica, in order to quell much of the violence taking place in the country particularly between rival political bandits who lived in areas controlled by political parties who would exchange food and homes for political allegiance.
