Act to Remove Assata Shakur from the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” List
Read the letter to President Obama from Angela Davis, Alice Walker, Danny Glover, Bill Fletcher, and other rights activists and lawyers organizations asking the FBI to prove or withdraw its May 2nd, 2013 allegations against Assata and Cuba, and to rescind its actions announced that day.

Dear President Obama:
We write to urge you to overrule the FBI’s decision to put Assata Shakur, aka Joanne Chesimard, on the “Most Wanted Terrorists List, with $1 Million FBI Reward Offered for Information Leading to Her Capture and Return,” as phrased by the FBI’s May 2, 2013 announcement. This $1 million combines with the $1 million bounty already offered by New Jersey. We know of no support for the claims by the FBI in making that announcement that Ms. Shakur has used her asylum in Cuba to “promote” “terrorist ideology” and espouse “terrorism.” We ask that the FBI be directed to publicly produce documentation to support these claims, and that until and unless this is done, its officials be directed to withdraw these assertions. The FBI’s accompanying actions should also be immediately withdrawn for the following additional reasons.
