CCNY Center Shuttered: War Against the 60’s (Prison Radio, 1:16)

We have learned, recently, of the closing of the Morales-Shakur Student Center at the City College of New York. (CCNY)

What does this mean? Why now?

What we are seeing is the war against the ‘60s – a war against the Movements of that era – and a war against history itself.

For the present era of leaders want to white-wash and erase the history of the ‘60s – so that the names of Guillermo Morales and Assata Shakur are forgotten.

They are Freedom Fighters, representatives of the Puerto Rican nationalist movement and the Black liberation movement. And although these movements are over a hundred years old, they want you to forget them.

This isn’t just their history – it is yours as well!

We urge you not to forget them!

Study them – and build new movements for freedom!
