This is Chris Ernesto, one of the co-founders of St. Pete for Peace.
I am in absolute solidarity with the "Uhuru 3" (African People’s Socialist Party Chairman Omali Yeshitela and Uhuru solidarity leaders Penny Hess and Jesse Nevel) who are being falsely charged as “Russian agents.”
WATCH THE MAY 10 POST-INDICTMENT PRESS CONFERENCE WITH CHAIRMAN OMALI YESHITELA, PENNY HESS AND JESSE NEVEL.
The Uhuru Movement helped shape my views on U.S. foreign policy, free speech and the liberation of people being oppressed by the U.S. Empire and its colonial partners. They have a wealth of knowledge that many of us are fortunate to continue to learn from.
They are the most intelligent, principled and focused group I've worked with. They led the years-long struggle for free speech at Baywalk. They are strong, and the charges against them are bogus and desperate. I know they're going to win, and I look forward to the day the U.S. government gets faced for attacking people because of their beliefs.
