Chairman Omali Yeshitela responds to the FBI attacks on the African People's Socialist Party
In the early morning hours of Friday, July 29, 2022, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), aided by local police, raided the offices and homes of members of the Uhuru Movement in St. Petersburg, Florida and St. Louis, Missouri.
Scores of FBI and local police agents broke down doors, broke windows, used flashbang devices and drones and threatened residents with automatic weapons. They stole computers, hard drives, phones, office equipment and files—both business and personal.
They temporarily detained APSP Chairman Omali Yeshitela, APSP Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela, APSP AgitProp Director Akilé Anai, APSC Chairwoman Penny Hess, and APSC members Kitty, Jesse and Amanda.
