ASSATA SHAKUR QUOTE, ASSATA EVENT THIS SAT IN LONDON


Dear friends, I will be putting a quote up a day from Assata's autobiography up until the event this Sat.

Many thanks to Carlos Martinez for collating these quotes together in his review of the book here:

On unity:

"Some of the laws of revolution are so simple they seem impossible. People think that in order for something to work, it has to be complicated, but a lot of times the opposite is true. We usually reach success by putting the simple truths that we know into practice. The basis of any struggle is people coming together to fight against a common enemy… One of the most important things the Party did was to make it really clear who the enemy was: not the white people, but the capitalistic, imperialistic oppressors. They took the Black liberation struggle out of a national context and put it in an international context. The Party supported revolutionary struggles and governments all over the world and insisted the u.s. get out of Africa, out of Asia, out of Latin America, and out of the ghetto too."
