🗄 #mutulumondays- A Life of Struggle Shakur began to work at Lincoln Detox because of its close ties to the community, Lincoln Detox provided the community with a healing, non-chemical solution to the detox ification of addicts, trained the community in the theory and use of acupuncture and provided political education about the drug plague, who controls the drug empire and how to resist. Because the program exposed the conspiracy of government agencies, law enforce ment agencies, organized crime and drug companies in the waging of chemical warfare through drugs and methadone maintenance programs, the state began to attack it.
Consequently, Shakur, who had been trained by the Quebec Assocation of Acupuncture and received a Doctor of Acupuncture degree, became one of the founding members of Black Acupuncture Advisory Association of North America (BAAANA). Under Shakur's directorship, BAAANA became famous in the Black community in New York City for pro viding quality, alternative health care for a variety of ailments. The Black Liberation movement began to make significant strides. Shakur began to notice that those who spoke out against injustice were often targets for government attacks.
Further analysis revealed a pattern "too coincidental to be accidental." For Shakur, the Panther 21 case, the murder of Fred Hampton, the New Bethel attack "all prompted collec tive evaluation and analysis that there must have been a broader conspiracy against the revolutionary nationalist movement." While working on the defense committee of Assata Skakur and Sundiata Acoli, Shakur and others began to see the need to investigate the FBI's Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO). He said, "Doing the defense work we realized we were infiltrated by agents of the Red Squad, the FBI and the New York Police Department. We felt that the establishment of the National Task Force for Cointelpro Litigation and Research would render an important service to the revolutionary nationalist community and to all pro gressive communities subject to attack by the state. #freemutulu #newafrikan77wordpress #newafrikanpoliticalprisoners #alleyezonmemovie #alleyezonmemixtape #mutuluiswelcomehere
