Hands Off Assata, Hand Over Posada!

Demo and Press Conference
Friday, June 3rd
12 Noon

On May 2nd the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
put a $1 million bounty on the head of Assata Shakur
and placed her on the domestic terrorist list under
the Patriot Act. Assata is a former member of the
Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army
falsely accused of murdering a New Jersey State
Trooper on May 2nd, 1973. In 1979 Assata escaped
prison and was given political sanctuary in Cuba. The
aim of the FBI's attack on Assata is to eliminate the
domestic resistance of the Black Liberation movement,
undermine the sovereignty of Cuba and Venezuela and
set the stage for the possible invasion of these two
nations. The FBI escalation at this time is also meant
to divert attention from Luis Posada Carriles, an
anti-Cuban terrorist wanted by Venezuela on charges of
blowing up a Cuban airliner, who recently came to the
United States seeking political asylum.
