Hip Hop and Spoken Word activist appearing soon- Jared Paul


Jared Paul is a social worker and from Providence, RI. In 2004 after years of local and national performances Jared traveled the U.S. on the 32 venue DIY Fight The Tide Tour registering poets in various spoken word communities to vote and raise awareness about voter fraud. The tour was swallowed and redirected when it met up with the Sage Francis FUCK CLEAR CHANNEL TOUR featuring Grand Buffet and Mac Lethal in South Carolina. Jared stayed with the FCC tour for an additional 20 dates, helping to register over a thousand people to vote, and assisted in spreading the word about the danger?s of the corrupt, money driven, and community destroying media ownership empire ?Clear Channel.? Jared was next enlisted as a featured hip hop/spoken word act for all 40 date?s on Sage Francis?s 2005 ?A Health Distrust Tour.? He has opened for Saul Williams and Sole, and played on the same bill as Atmosphere and Immortal Technique.

In between the U.S. and the UK Jared has attended over a hundred national/local protests , marches, and rallies; Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Providence, Boston, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Albuquerque, San Francisco, and London. Whether anti war protests (before and after the invasion of Iraq), picketing office buildings down town with the Janitors Union, marching with Native Americans through the streets of Plymouth for The Day of Mourning (thanksgiving), placing police under citizens arrest with The Black Tea Society for attempted kidnap at the 2004 DNC, lobbying World Bank Delegates in D.C., or forming peace plea lines with RI Defend?s Choice while radical anti choicers assault clinics; the world is on fire and the battle has many fronts.

Jared was arrested along with hundreds of other concerned citizens while walking silently in a sidewalk peace vigil from Ground Zero to City Hall in New York City during the 2004 Republican National Convention. He was taken to a warehouse called Pier 57 with razor wire lined cells and detained without access to a lawyer, food, or phone call for 26 hours. At the arraignment Jared plead not guilty and all charges were dropped; he is now part of a major class action lawsuit currently underway with The National Lawyers Guild. Jared and other member?s of SEMIprose for Artistic Journalism covered the entire RNC for his WRIU 90.3FM News program The Agenda. The Agenda and it?s staff reported live from both the 2004 Republican and Democratic National Conventions respectively and later dedicated each of it?s weekly broadcast?s from Nov.-Feb. to covering election fraud and voting anomalies during the 2004 election. In March of 2005, The Agenda stepped aside in order to run Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman in it?s Sunday night time slot.

The MANICexpressive Agenda is:
I. Recycling is Important
II. Go Vegan!
III. Consider Adopting a Child
IV. Voting; based on research

We have a relationship with everything we touch; our goods, who makes them, how those people are treated, how the goods are transported, and how the whole process affects their respective ecosystems. With this in mind, Jared avoids purchasing any goods that are not Fair Trade certified; no coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, etc?

Jared has been vegan for 9 years and does not drink alcohol or smoke anything. Factory Farming destroys the environment, perpetrates severe and unnatural suffering against living creatures, and decimates working class farmers. No if, and?s, or but?s about it.

Jared is Heavily Influenced By: Bob Dylan, Bernadine Dohrn, Nat Turner, Thomas Paine, Amy Goodman & Democracy Now!, my family, Fred Hampton, John Brown, Bad Religion, Public Enemy, bike kids, Sage Francis, Ani Di Franco, Chomsky, good dancing, Zinn, May 1st, 1877 in the United States, Alixa Garcia, Hugo Chavez, Michael Moore, Representative John Conyers, May 1968 in France, Senator Barbara Boxer, February 1917 in Russia, The Bee Hive Collective, Indy Media Centers, BlackBoxVoting.org, and the current and rising swell toward Impeachment 2007: KATRINA IS OUR WATERGATE! .

Jared Paul has performed, lectured, and spoken at colleges, rap shows, high schools, poetry slams, universities, punk shows, festivals, marches, and protest?s all over the U.S. He currently performs at rap shows with a lap top, indy shows with the Dead Sober Band, spoken word shows alone, and is currently working with various producer?s on a full length hip hop album slated for release sometime in 2006.

I was a vegan for eight months. I'll never gain weight or get zits again.

Hip Hop and Spoken Word activist appearing soon- Jared Paul

Both of these Jared Paul pieces are featured and analyzed in Show #11 of The Rational Response Squad:

ABC's(For Roger) wrote:

My mother came to this country at age 8, when her father moved the family to find work. She had to leave her home and forsake her native speech. She taught me my ABC's in this language while watching Mr. Rogers and Sesame St., and although I am choosing NOT to have children of my own, the ones that I adopt will learn the same through symbols like these...

Ais for Adoption, for each and every boy and girl in need

even though it seems legal gaurdian angels only come to free

those who are spotless'n'clean, and under the age of 3

Ais for AGRICULTURE, which is Better than Cattle Deforrestation.

It takes 12 million metric tons of grain to feed 3 million metric tons of edible beef, take that same fuel and give it to human belly's,

you could feed 4 times the people

and prevent the slashing and burning of nearly %100 the forest.

Eis for Economics, Energy, and Evolution; Fail to see how these things relate and our Globe will choke on the Gaggles of Genomes we are Greedy enough to make.

HIndustrial Juggernauts Kill; there are 540 billionaires in existence,

that's double the number their was when i first wrote this poem! total their wealth, and you've got more money than the combined asset

of every other person across the globe.

Billionaires all colors, cultures, and skin tones

from the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, and New American Rome...

all blue blooded, white collared, with apathy colored eyes

now go back and hold onto I, I is important,

like conservation, contraceptives, recycling and research.

Lis not for Love of poetry or hip hop, it's for Logistics.

If the poplulation of this world doubles in size 70 times over the next 155 years, there will be no room for anyone to build, farm, or breathe.

That may not be enough to scare you into changing your daily routine,

but as for me, I am terrified.

NObserve, P is Petroleum plastics in practically every product and package,

but i ain't yet seen the protest slogan motto calling:

"bring home the troops-NO BLOOD FOR BOTTLED WATER!"

P is also for Police officers, who are overworked, underpaid, and under-trained;

If the only people applying at the police academy

are football players who weren't good enough to make it in college

and ex-military men with a propensity for violence,

then the only people holding guns in the name of the law will be...

football players who weren't good enough to play in college and ex-military men with a propensity for violence.

Qyour goods, who makes them, and how they are distributed.

You have a relationship with all of these things.

If some one, or some earth is being fucked over in the process

by which our goods get to us,

then WE are ultimately responsible for any harm done.

Ris for Responsible consumers - Separate their - Trash - Unfailingly, all paper, plastic and glass. V is for Vegan, and that's where it's at.

Wone of the following is a figment of your imagination:

a.) super man has X-ray vision.

Or is it

b.) diamonds are mined by black slaves in present day Africa, where servants are subjected to several layers of X-ray radiation every single day to just to make certain that no one is stealing...

5 years after the story broke in major u.s. media

without very many slam poets writing very many letters

to their legislators or editors

and Hip Hip and R&B have become some of the biggest investors

in this business venture keeping Africa indentured, sequestered and bleeding

Yand I can make a difference, by NOT purchasing slave diamonds

to symbolize our love and the ring of it's meaning.

They say that at poetry slams and protests we are preaching to the choir,

and that our real goal should be to reach the people outside this forum,

but we are not the choir.

WE ARE NOT THE FUCKING CHOIR.

I don't be believe that we are doing everything that we can.

I don't see us working as hard as possible.

Evolution has to move faster than this.

Zis not for Zion or Zacharria, it's for Zenith.

If you and I sacrifice our surplus

till everyone has food, medecine, and a bed then we can reach it.

Jesus In a Bowl of Germs wrote:

Pictures of fields without fences... Shangri La...

and Jesus, Jesus in a bowl of germs (don't get scared dad...)

after all god loves this whole of worms,

but hates counting black sheep who refuse to follow the shepherd.

Who heard little lambs into slaughter?-LISTEN -

to the silence of the man's-LIFE-is a serial killer

far too complex to expose any logical pattern/ -

below saturn and mars there are stars dominating the tunnel vision of cast obstruction

and jesus might have been a biological weapon of mass destruction/

specifically designed to wipe out millions with vanity an pride, lab engineered and born,

advanced chemistry in a bowl of germs like hybrid corn,/

complete with hidden agenda beneath the surface lurking

and smirking under a crown of thorns./

The crucifixion was a hoax, a cruel joke shop poison rose bud,

emanating smoke screen and only begotten son soap suds,/

"Come and Wash Your Sins Away!", said the spider

to the flying rows of holy roman hope bugs.

Let's see if we can give noah's old flood a run for it's money

with the first drop of cold blood/ from the cross began a damned birth.

the contamination spread without aids hospital orderly's or cancer/

sticks, and stone moving angels, but no bones for artifacts or relics, just a vacant hole

on easter sunday and a note about his rising soul./

sounds pretty fishy; stand atop the mount and feed me loaves of bullshit

our last meal was a feast/ at a table headed by a lupine figure hiding in fleece./

no one ever thought to check jesus for the sign of the beast,

no one ever lifted his hair and looked beneath/

it was there on his neck, no one cared, or was even looking for proof.

WHAT!? you didn't expect joe and mare' to volunteer the truth,/

and judas did not hang from his own noose,

it was just made to look that way, Jesus Christ! he was a planned device,

schizophrenic double edged sword; prophet and antichrist;/

good but ultimately evil, with multiple people within shouting orders

leading the flock over the border

and through the woods into the land of honey milk and slaughter,/

selling water for wine in between black out gorges on swine,

eventually leading up to crusaders with torches in line,

all the way to Jerusalem from north of the Rhine,/

infected by motives that were all but divine,

and the same virus has still got the sons and daughters of time

on life support waiting for orders to die./

they struggle to stay afloat while their saviour keeps walking on by,

on top of the water kicking salt in their eyes./

it's all in the mind state, they're all still alive but planning their own wake,

waiting for the wave of an apocalypse that already came to break;/

FUCK ARMEGEDDON, life is heaven and hell,

the only fate is what we make.

the only fate is what we make fate is what we make,

fate is what we make, we make fate./

your essence was conceived and born to breathe in pictures of fields without fences...

it remains relatively unconcerned with this non existent god forsaken whole of worms,

natural selection has you headed for shangri-la;

don't settle for jesus in a bowl of germs

don't settle for allah, amon-ra, vishnu, or abraham in a bowl of germs

don't settle for anything less than universal respect

for every living creature that has breath/

in it's lungs and chest regardless of race, sex, preference,

or whatever the fuck it says in ancient text.

Lyrics to "The Worker's Moon: fall of Hope" performed live by Jared Paul on Show 11:

Quote:
Hope ran to the alley

plied the sewer cap and climbed below

7 tiers, till she reached the face in the bricks

an12:01AM, Nov 3rd, 2004

d fell onto one knee into the broken things

closed her eyes, right hand over heart and whispered...

"the choir sings,

hallalayloo

in the blood of the father,

the sun,

and the worker jesus christ,

all men"

the face shimmered, the voice came louder than ever before

and the walls of the city shook to all cities on earth

"ALL SING

THE CHOIR BOOMED

LOCKED IN SLAVE BLOCKS

IN THE BLOOD OF THE FATHER

THE SUN

AND THE WORKER JESUS CHRIST

ALL MEN"

the ancient texts licked in the spit of hebrew latin, greek, and old english

rephrazed with each roll in the mouth of dust

were translated by anglo saxons cabals called holy

for an anglo saxon king called james

their words have been pregnant 500 generations

and their fruit is now bared, hear their cry...

ALL SING! THE CHOIR BOOMED

"NO COUNT REGARDING THE WILL

OF THE PEOPLE SHALL BE GIVEN

AND NO MASON SHALL TAKE HIS CROWN

TILL THE MOST CHOSEN CIRCLES

OF WOLF HAVE PERFORMED

THE DANCE OF THE POISON LILLY

BEFORE THE COURT IN IT'S ENTIRETY

ALL SING

NO SEPTER BESTOWED

BEFORE THE SCALE STACKED WITH THE BEST BONES DROPS

and

NO POOBA MAY TAKE HIS THRONE

BUT OVER THE BONES OF THE YOUNG

AND OF THE SICK

FROM HERE TILL THE ICE MELTS AGAIN

ALL SING THE CHOIR BOOMED

HALLAYLOO

IN THE BLOOD OF THE FATHER

THE SUN, AND THE WORKER JESUS CHRIST

BOOM

NO PENIS-LESS EARTH BOUND SHALL TERMINATE HER OFFSPRING

WHETHER THE SEED IN HER BELLY IS BORN OF RAPE

OR WHETHER THE SEED OF THE RAPE

WAS SEWN BY HER OWN FATHER"

ALL SING

"for he hath judged the great whore,

which did corrupt the earth with her fornication,

and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand."

HALAYLOO

"but the fearful,

and the murderers, whoremongers, and sorcerers,

idolaters, and all l liars, shall have their part in the lake

which burneth with fire and brimstone"

-as SPIT in the revelation unto the liar john for the saxon James

ALL MEN

abominable is your brother called gay and who riots in his flesh

and your sister who will terminate a life within her

their sickness is perjury in his name

and their punishment shall be great

BOOM

the lamb must have it's throat extracted and carcass dragged

so that 4 out of 10 wolf cubs may be granted ever lasting luxury

"all sing

the choir boomed halayloo...

all men."

BOOM

THIS LAND WILL REMAIN SILK

AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERY ISLAND

FOR EVERY ISLAND

IS OUR ISLAND

IT'S SOIL IS THIS SOIL

AND IT'S FRUIT IS OUR FRUIT

HALAYLOO

THE CROWD OF EVERY VILLAGE WILL KNOW

AND TREAD BEFORE RODS, BEAN BAGS, AND RUBBER BULLETS

BOOM

AND EVERY ENEMY OF THE GRAND COUNCIL

OF THE HOUSE OF MASON

WILL BE DESTROYED

FOR THE PROTECTION OF EVERY VILLAGE

AND EVERY ISLAND WHICH ALSO BELONG TO US

AND THE AIR AND THE WATER

AND THE LAND AND

ALL LIFE SHALL BUCKLE

UNDER OUR TOOLS AND THEIR WASTE

TILL THE ICE MELTS AGAIN

FOR THE GREAT FROST IS IN FULL THAW

AND IT IS NOT OUR CHARGE

TO STEWARD THE SEED OR TENDER OF A DYING LAND

ALL SING THE CHOIR BOOMED

HALLAYLOO,

LOCKED IN SLAVE BLOCKS, BOOM

IN THE BLOOD OF THE FATHER

THE SON AND THE WORKER

JESUS CHRIST

...Hope fled the sound of the face in the brick

off her knees

climbing down deep

to a place where no light shines

and curled up amongst the trash

and the rust and the rats

and she slept

like a stone
