FBI ATTACK UPDATE: indictments of Uhuru Movement members expected early 2023

Jan 1, 2023

On July 29, 2022, the FBI brutally raided seven offices and homes of the African People’s Socialist Party and Uhuru Movement in St. Louis, MO, and St. Petersburg, Florida.

A Russian national was indicted by the FBI for conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government. The FBI made bogus allegations implying that the Party’s 50-plus year struggle for the liberation of Africa and African people everywhere was coordinated by “Russian malign influence.”

Chairman Omali Yeshitela, Party Director of AgitProp Akilé Anai, African People’s Solidarity Committee Chair Penny Hess and Uhuru Solidarity Movement Chair Jesse Nevel were targeted by the FBI as unnamed “unindicted co-conspirators” related to these charges.

The Hands Off Uhuru! Hands Off Africa! Defense campaign learned that indictments of Uhuru Movement members are likely and can be expected in early 2023. Learn how you can be part of the fight back!
