Exonerate Assata Shakur of ALL criminal charges!

This petition had 979 supporters

The United States of America began with the premise that citizens have the right to protest to resolve their grievances, and free speech to be critical of government officials/agencies. Assata Shakur has these rights, and they were all violated including her right to a fair trial. She has been unfairly persecuted and harrassed since the late 1970s, and her harrassment continues even today as the FBI and NJ state announce they will continue to seek her out for capture and extradition. This is unfair, unethical, and reeks of government suppression of free speech and political dissent. By exonerating Assata Shakur, the United States demonstrates fair play and a capacity to disagree without acting in a repressive manner.
