Because of government persecution,I was left with no other choice than to flee from the politicalrepression, racism and violence that dominate the US government'spolicy towards people of color. I am an ex political prisoner, andI have been living in exile in Cuba since 1984. I have been a politicalactivist most of my life, and although the U.S. government has doneeverything in its power to criminalize me, I am not a criminal,nor have I ever been one. In the 1960s, I participated in variousstruggles: the black liberation movement, the student rights movement,and the movement to end the war in Vietnam. I joined the BlackPanther Party. By 1969 the Black Panther Party had become the numberone organization targeted by the FBI's COINTELPROprogram. because the Black Panther Party demanded the total liberationof black people, J. Edgar Hoover called it "greatest threatto the internal security of the country" and vowed to destroyit and its leaders and activists.Mumia Abu Jamal Assata: Terrorism or SurvivorOf Terrorism? | 2.1MB | 4:35 Sec
