50 Years Behind Bars: Jalil Muntaqim, COINTELPRO, and Lessons for Today.

Via Coaltion for Civil Freedoms

In episode 27 of our #InjusticeAtHome webinar series, we will be speaking with former Black Panther Jalil Muntatim, recently released from prison after nearly 50 years behind bars, Mauri’ Saalakhan of The Aafia Foundation, and attorney Steve Downs, about how the FBI used COINTELPRO to systematically attack the Black Panther Party through informants, frame-ups, and assassination, and what we can learn from this today, as we are trying to free prisoners preemptively prosecuted and essentially framed by the government as part of the War on Terror.

Moderated by CCF legal director and Muntaqim’s parole attorney, Kathy Manley.Register on Zoom at http://bit.ly/jalilmuntaqim or watch live on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/civilfreedoms/live this Friday, April 9 at 3:00 PM ET/12:00 PM PT.
