THE 5TH ANNUAL FREEDOM DANCE
“Party With A Purpose”
 
On Saturday – November 2nd -  the Fifth Annual Freedom Dance is taking place at Harlem’s historic National Black Theatre - beginning at 7:30PM and featuring DJ Lumumba aka Revolution.
 
In the proud tradition of struggle and liberation, Freedom Dance honors those who have carried high the banner of resistance.  We remember those Sisters and Brothers who bravely gave their lives and liberty in the cause of freedom and justice knowing they cannot represent themselves because they are imprisoned for those very beliefs and actions.  Freedom Dance is a party with a purpose – all proceeds go to the support of political prisoners held captive in the United States.
 
This year’s Freedom Dance celebrates exiled Black Liberation Fighter - Assata Shakur. November 2nd marks the 34th year of her liberation.  To many Assata is a symbol of bravery and dedication…                                   On May 2nd 1973 State troopers on the New Jersey State Turnpike stopped Assata and 2 other members of the Black Panther Party.  Surviving 2 deadly gunshot wounds, Assata was charged with the murder of a trooper.  Six years later, on November 2nd 1979 she escaped from New Jersey’s Clinton Correctional Facility and is living in exile. 
On May 2nd, 2005, the FBI classified her as a “domestic terrorist” - placing a $1 million reward for her capture. An inspiration to many, this Freedom Fighter was (on May 2nd this year) placed on the Most Wanted Terrorist list and the bounty was increased to  $2 million.  In her own words Shakur says “I am a 20th century escaped slave”. 
 
The government has elevated this barbaric conduct to the diplomatic level as a way to re-imprison one Black woman who dared fight for our freedom. The FBI and the state of New Jersey must be forced to obey the law. We cannot allow them to engage in lynch-mob diplomacy.
