Black Panther Party, New Afrikan, and Black Liberation Army political prisoners, were victims of the COINTELPRO operations in the 1960s-70s when the FBI sought to destroy the Black liberation movement. This U.S. government campaign resulted in at least 38 Black Panther Party members being killed and hundreds more imprisoned on frame-up charges.The FBI used COINTELPRO to infiltrate and disrupt groups seeking basic change in society. Many Black liberation activists have been imprisoned as a result of these operations, dozens of them for over 30 years.

Today I am going to focus primarily on New Afrikan (and Black) political prisoners. Since they were first brought to North America as slaves African people have struggled for their freedom. However, this tradition of struggle has been mirrored by another tradition, a tradition of criminalizing that struggle, exemplified today by the New Afrikan (and Black) political prisoners held by the U.S. We are here today to honor the former, and to expose the latter.

The United States has always criminalized those Africans who have led struggles for freedom. The leaders of slave rebellions, for example, were tried as criminals and often given the death penalty. In 1800 Gabriel Prosser who planned a rebellion modeled on the Haitian revolution, and 26 of his comrades were executed. Denmark Vesey was executed for planning a slave revolt in 1822. Nat Turner who led the famous slave rebellion of 1831 was executed. Even so others have come forward to carry on their struggle.

Harriet Tubman and the conductors of the Underground Railroad were hunted as criminals. The Jamaican leader Marcus Garvey was falsely convicted in 1923 for fraud and deported. During the 1950s and 1960s Civil Rights activists were often portrayed as criminals. The F.B.I. even tried to discredit Dr. Martin Luther King by portraying him as a criminal.

The real crime is that the U.S. continues to hold political prisoners some for almost three decades. Jalil A. Muntaqim is one example. He has been held for 28 years. Jalil began working in the Civil Rights Movement and continued to be active in what was known as the Black Liberation Movement and is currently working in the New Afrikan Independence Movement.
