Senate Democrat Bob Menendez and Senate Republican Marco Rubio have introduced a resolution in the Senate that demands the immediate extradition of Assata Shakur from Cuba. The resolution comes as U.S. aggression toward Cuba has escalated in the form of tighter sanctions and travel restrictions. There is no better time for the lynch mob in the U.S. imperial state to intensify their hunt of Assata Shakur. The Democratic Party is seeking to regain the Oval Office from the Republicans in the 2020 election. Furthermore, U.S. imperialism has failed in its attempt to overthrow the socialist government in Venezuela. Gusano Cuban voters in the U.S. know that the fate of Venezuela is intimately tied to Cuba’s and base their electoral decisions on which candidate is most hostile toward the Cuba-Venezuela alliance.
Of course, Assata Shakur is not merely a domino in the U.S.’ war against Cuba and Venezuela. She is a Black revolutionary whose escape from prison in 1979 has forever been an embarrassment for the U.S. ruling class. Assata has lived in Cuba under legal asylum since 1984. Since then, the U.S. has failed to bully Cuba into releasing her into the hands of the U.S. national security state. Cuba has made it clear that its loyalty resides with the dictates of international law, not with U.S. imperialism. While few in the U.S. recognize the existence of political prisoners in the United States, socialist Cuba has provided safety for Assata Shakur in part because the Cuban people have firsthand knowledge that only torture, abuse, and death awaits her in the United States.
