Celebrate International Hands Off Assata! Day

Published Jul 14, 2005 8:43 PM

Assata Shakur

The U.S. government has raised the bounty on Assata Shakur, now living in exile in Cuba, from $150,000 to $1 million. This courageous sister’s supporters in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago are offering testimonials to her life with meet ings, teach-ins and on-line editorials.

For people in the New York area, there will be a Community Teach-In at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 521 W. 126th St., between Amsterdam and Broadway, on July 16 from 4-7 p.m. Take the #1 train to 125th Street.

Organizers invite people to “come support and learn about Assata, her case, why the U.S. government is after her, the cases of other political prisoners, and the Cuba connection.”
