On May 2nd 1973 Assata Shakur and two other members of the Black Panther Party were ambushed by State troopers on the New Jersey Turnpike. Zayd Malik Shakur was killed by police bullets; Assata and Sundiata Acoli were arrested and convicted of the murder of a trooper. Six years later, on November 2nd 1979, Assata was liberated from New Jersey’s Clinton Correctional Facility, and a few years later she was granted political asylum by Cuba, where she lives today.

Assata has described herself as a “20th century escaped slave.” Sundiata, in his 41st year in prison, continues to be a beacon of courage and strength as he fights for release. Since that time the FBI has twice increased the bounty for Assata’s capture and last year raised it to $2 million, placing her on the “Most Wanted Terrorist” list.

ASSATA IS OUR HEROINE & NOBODY’S TERRORIST!
FREE ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS!
