Please join us on Saturday, November 28th to stand in solidarity with Dr Mutulu Shakur before his appeals hearing on Monday, November 30th at the super-maximum Federal prison in Florence, CO.

Dr. Shakur is a New Afrikan (Black) man whose primary work has been in the area of health. He is a doctor of acupuncture and one of the most prolific, committed and conscious freedom fighters and political prisoners to whom the Black liberation struggle has given birth.

Since the age 16, Dr. Shakur has been a part of the New Afrikan Independence Movement. As a part of this movement Dr. Shakur has been a target of the illegal Counterintelligence Program carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (COINTELPRO). This was a secret police strategy used in the U.S. starting in the 1960’s to destroy and neutralize progressive and revolutionary organizations. It is believed that Dr. Shakur’s resistance to this program led to his arrest and trial.

“Straight ahead, stiff resistance”

    It was actually Dr. Shakur’s involvement in the planning of multiple, violent bank robberies, which ultimately resulted in several deaths, for which he was convicted and remains incarcerated. If you let assholes like him speak for you, you’ll never even be close to right.

      You’re almost right. If Dr. Shakur was indeed involved in the bank robbery, deaths of cops, and the liberation of Assata Shakur from prison, that would not only reaffirm our support of him.
      Bank robbery, cop-killing, and prison escapes, these are a few of our favorite things… 😉

    “Bank robbery, cop-killing, and prison escapes, these are a few of our favorite things…”

    “disclaimer: […] we do not encourage or condone any illegal activity…”

    Well yeah, actually you do.

    And I’m not almost right about the reasons for Shakur’s conviction; I’m 100% right. He’s an antisocial psycho who’s exactly where he belongs. If you’re looking for constructive ways to change the world, his is the last example you should seek to follow.

    If, on the other hand, you’re just out to epater le bourgeois and score with loose stoner chicks, you’re right on target.
