Angela Davis and Assata Shakur’s Lawyer Lennox Hinds Denounce FBI’s Adding of Exiled Activist to Terrorist List

Davis: “It seems to me that this act incorporates or reflects the very logic of terrorism.[…] I can’t help but think that it’s designed to frighten people who are involved in struggles today. Forty years ago seems like it was a long time ago. In the beginning of the 21st century, we’re still fighting around the very same issues – police violence, health care, education, people in prison.

Hinds: “We believe that putting Assata Shakur on the FBIs Ten Most Wanted list is designed to inflame the public and to characterize her as a terrorist when none of the acts alleged relates to terrorism.” […] “This is a political act pushed by the state of New Jersey, by some members of Congress from Miami, and with the intent of putting pressure on the Cuban government and to inflame public opinion […]There is no way to appeal someone being put on the terrorist list.”
