I AM ASSATA SHAKUR - A Party & Benefit for The Sundiata Acoli Freedom Campaign
This celebration is an opportunity for us as a community to acknowledge our victories and renew our efforts to continue this essential work. We celebrate the liberation and freedom of our sister Assata Shakur, who along with many other Political Prisoners (who still remain behind the walls) set the example of unselfish sacrifice for our beloved people. We also celebrate the sacrifice of those freedom fighters whose spirits were released due to their physical demise. This is a celebration for them all. We will especially honor Sundiata Acoli. Through music and the warm meaningful collective interaction of dance and laughter, we will reaffirm our commitment to their freedom.
Admission is $20. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase.
Even if you live outside of the area, we encourage supporters everywhere to make a contribution through our Paypal account. If you would like to support but cannot attend, please click maybe and we will send you more details to come.
Help us raise funds for legal fees and other projects supporting Sundiata's release as we prepare for his upcoming parole hearing in February 2010.
Can we get 1,000 people to support Freedom Dance? We're counting on it! This event is a special and important opportunity to show your love for Assata & Sundiata.
36 years is long enough! Sundiata must be free!
Hands off Assata!
It is time for truth and reconcilation!
