The Hands Off Uhuru! Hands Off Africa! Defense Campaign has developed talking points that you can use when speaking with friends, family and others in
On Friday, July 29, 2022, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) initiated a political assault against the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), the broader Uhuru Movement and its leader, Chairman Omali Yeshitela, in the form of pre-dawn raids.
This attack employed the use of dozens of tactical gear-sporting FBI agents, battering rams, flashbang grenades, assault rifles, drones and more.
The attacks occurred in two cities where our Party has prominent bases: St. Petersburg, Florida and St. Louis, Missouri, the latter our recently established Party headquarters.
They were simultaneous, beginning at 5:00 AM in the Midwest and 6:00 AM on the east coast. The attacks happened at a time when the FBI assumed our leaders would have been in a vulnerable state. It was also an attempt to make it impossible for our leaders to connect with one another, to prepare for whatever was to come next.
