Remove Joanne Chesimard from the FBI's list of Most Wanted Terrorists.

Assata Shakur (Joanne Chesimard) poses no threat to the United States. She is not a terrorist. She is an activist that was the victim of U.S attempts to "neutralize" those speaking and acting out against injustice. Because of the false charges brought against her, and her wrongful imprisonment, she has been forced to spend the majority of her life in political exile. Assata Shakur's name does not belong on any list of terrorists, let alone an FBI list of the Most Wanted. We demand that her name and the reward associated with it be withdrawn immediately.
