Here's a few from Gavin @ the Rage FAQ....found @:

http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/2822/ratmfaq32.html [It's a fairly incredible info resource....short-ish I guess, but really inclusive]

Ejercito Zapatista Liberacion Nacional

The Ejercito Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional (EZLN, Zapatista
National Liberation Army in the Spanish language) is a leftist
revolutionary group in southeastern Mexico. It principally operates
in the state of Chiapas, although its demands and influence are
national. The members of the EZLN are primarily indigenous people
from the Lacandon Jungle region of Chiapas, Mexico. The EZLN has
around 12,000 troops, 2-3000 of whom are fairly well-armed. There
are 11 general demands of the EZLN, as outlined in the 1st
Declaration From the Lacandon Jungle; they are: work, land, shelter,
food, health, education, autonomy, freedom, democracy, justice, and
peace. The EZLN took its name from the Mexican revolutionary leader
Emiliano Zapata, who led the armies of the south in the Mexican
Revolution, developed the Plan de Ayala (see Section [7-2-7-3]), and
was eventually betrayed and killed. The movement was born just over
12 years ago in the Lacandon jungle.

Zack has visited the region to "help out" the EZLN on several
occasions, and often wears a shirt with "E Z L N" written on the
chest. Several Evil Empire songs deal with this subject as well.
For further information, see [6-4] and [7-2].

Mumia Abu-Jamal

Information provided by Refuse & Resist! (see section [6-4])

At the time of his arrest, he was a prominent radio journalist and
president of the local chapter of the Association of Black
Journalists. Mumia was also a strident critic of Philadelphia's
racist police force, and was affiliated with the Black Panthers. One
evening in 1981 when Mumia was moonlighting as a cab driver, he came
upon a cop beating his own brother. The street was full of people
(the bars had just closed) when Mumia ran to his brother's defense,
and after the ensuring conflict, Mumia was sitting on the curb shot
in the body, his brother was bleeding from the face, and the cop lay
dead. Following his arrest, he was beaten several times by police
and was said by police to have confessed to the murder of the police
officer. Mumia has always maintained that he did not kill the cop,
and a number of witnesses blamed another man who fled the scene.
Prosecutors argued for the death penalty by reciting his history in
the Black Panthers and quoting his political writings. Mumia was to
be put to death for consorting with radicals and upholding
revolution. Mumia sits on death row because of who he is and the
political views he advocates. He exposes police brutality and racism
and stands with revolutionary peoples throughout the world.

Rage performed in the Mumia defense fund benefit in the Capitol
Ballroom, Washington, DC on August 13, 1995. A bootleg of this
performance called "Killing Your Enemy in 1995" can be found (see
section [3-5-1]). The second Mumia defense fund benefit information
can be found in [1-14


Leonard Peltier

Leonard Peltier was a leader of AIM, the American Indian Movement.
In the late 1970's, at Pine Ridge, a group of FBI and ATF agents
approached a building where Peltier and other AIM members were
trapped. A siege and shootout followed where 2 FBI agents were
shotgunned to death. Peltier was arrested and plead not guilty,
however he would not reveal who did the shootings. He has since
resided in the Federal Prison at Leavenworth, Kansas. There is an
excellent film by the name of "Incident at Oglala" which details
his case, as well.

In 1994, Rage gave a concert for him, which raised $70,000+ for his
defense fund, and give out information about the case whenever
possible (see section [6-4]).

You'll also find info on demo/rare tracks....lyric explanations....solo projects....etc. Good stuff. Great page to point out to those people who still insist that 'Rage wasn't really very political' or whatever it is they say.....

Gavin's site has been around for years, too. I remember when I first started using a computer (not too too long ago), I would look up rage stuff, and Gavin's site was already there. His is the most informative on the net, I think.

I think the best guess people have made is that it's the noise of a gun being loaded. Seems a bit random though.

shucklack is slang for something... I cant remember what it is right now though. Quite sure it isn't a shotgun noise, though. I used to know... and now I've forgotten >_<
I'll try and dig it up when I have more time...I'm in the middle of exams at the moment.

Awesome. I thought it sounded a bit of a daft explanation. Hope you're exams are going well.

I anticipate that the purpose of the artefact was to abjure an adversary awning and beard in close area by defoliating copse and bracken area the enmy could hide. The artefact "Agent Orange" (a cipher name for the orange bandage that was acclimated to mark the drums it was stored in, was principally able adjoin broad-leaf foliage, such as the close jungle-like area begin in Southeast Asia.
