President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder: Release the Malcolm X files

    1. Petition by

      Nation of Islam

Recent media events have continued a process of slander against the good name and reputation of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. The mass media have tried to implicate Minister Farrakhan in the assassination of Malcolm X, falsely and maliciously reporting that he was directly involved in the murder of the slain black leader. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover, worked night and day to help create the atmosphere that allowed Malcolm X to be assassinated.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation's illegal and unconstitutional Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) interfered with and disrupted the lawful rights of nearly every Black organization and its leadership, and the U.S. government has never denied its role in the murder of Black leaders. The U.S. government has volumes of documents, photographs, films, audio files, and other relevant material about these activities hidden away from public view. The FBI, CIA, and other government agencies conducted this spy campaign against American citizens using taxpayer money. Therefore, we the people petition the Obama Administration to make available to the public ALL government files related to the assassination of Malcolm X.

We petition the Obama Administration to make available to the public all government files (unredacted) related to the assassination of Malcolm X.

      FBI COINTELPRO & The Murder

      We want to know the Truth about the Assassination of Malcolm X

      By Dr. Ridgely Abdul Mu'min Muhammad [Latest petition newsletter NOIRG.V4I10] At the end of February 2013 we started a petition to open the government files surrounding the assassination of Malcolm X in response to the false accusations made in a February TV movie called "Betty and Coretta" implicating the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

    2. Reached 2,500 signatures
    3. Reached 1,300 signatures

      We have reached 1,300 signatures, so we thank you very much. However, our goal is 100,000, so we need your help. We can reach our goal easily if each of you helps us find 100 new signatures. The mass media will not promote this cause until the grassroots beat on their doors. Those who love Minister Farrakhan and Malcolm X are united on this issue of opening up the files. Minister Farrakhan has publicly asked that these files be opened on a number of occasions since 1991, but the government has refused. Many of our people do not understand the damage to our growth and unity that this issue causes. However, the enemy of the rise of Black people understands the power of this weapon to prevent Black people from uniting and doing something for self. Open the files so that we can heal our wounds.

    4. Reached 1,000 signatures
    5. 600 Signatures reached

      In less than 48 hours we reached 600 signatures, so thank you so much. Our goal is 100,000 signatures. Let us show support for each of these great men and force the government to “come clean.” We are divided not because we don’t love each other, but someone has come between us spreading lies. Our enemy’s greatest weapon is not his guns but his deceit. Let us show him that we are united to demand the truth. Email,” tweet”, “facebook” and even call at least 100 of your friends and family and ask them to sign this petition.

      Thank you.

      Slander, Deceit and mis-information is a crime against humanity. Our tax dollars, especially the poor mans tax dollar were and are still being used by the FBI and other Federal agencies to destroy and cripple Black leaders and organizations that uphold the banner of Freedom, Justice and Equality, be it Black or White. We the people have a right to petition and demand the government that supports this agency to be transparent.
