Exonerate Assata Shakur!

The Newark, NJ field office of the FBI recently named political activist Assata Shakur to its "Most Wanted Terrorists" List and announced a $2 million award for assisting in her capture. Ms. Shakur was falsely accused of murder to begin with, due to her political beliefs. This 65 year-old fighter for freedom and justice has been the unfair target of manhunts and harrassment by the FBI for 40 years! She's been living in political assylum in Cuba, unable to return to the United States for fear of being killed or imprisoned. We must strike a blow for justice by fighting this ongoing campaign to smear her name and unfairly imprison her.
