Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard. https://www.northjersey.com/story/new… Published 6:10 a.m. ET Feb. 16, 2019
At her birth, her name was Cheri Laverne Dalton. But to the cadre of gun-toting revolutionaries, including Joanne Chesimard, who left a trail of blood across America in the 1970s and to her compatriots more recently in Cuba where she sought refuge, she was Nehanda Abiodun. She was also still a fugitive from U.S. justice.
On an October day in 1981, Dalton joined a team of operatives from the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground in an attempt to steal $1.6 million from a Brink’s armored truck as it parked near the Nanuet Mall. In the ensuing firefight, one of three Brink’s guards was shot to death and another was wounded. As Dalton and the other robbers tried to escape, another gun fight broke out and two Nyack police officers were killed.
Several years later, Dalton made her way to Cuba where the nation’s communist leader, Fidel Castro, hailed her as a revolutionary and granted her political asylum. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/2020…
April 02, 2019 By Gregg Re | Fox News A conference featuring eight prominent 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls kicked off in Washington, D.C,. with the fiery rallying cry of a fugitive cop-killer on Monday, as the labor and political groups in attendance shouted in unison, “We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Jamal Watkins, the Vice President of Civic Engagement at the NAACP, began by telling the audience at the We the People conference that he would invoke the words of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard. Shakur’s words, in turn, were appropriated from the final sentences of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels’ Communist Manifesto: “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!”
Among the groups in attendance were the Sierra Club, MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, SEIU and Communications Workers of America.
They were drawn to the conference to hear from a series of speakers that included 2020 Democratic White House contenders Cory Booker, Julián Castro, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Jay Inslee and Kirsten Gillibrand.
