Trump’s Secretary of State Wants Assata Shakur Re-Imprisoned | News | teleSUR English


Trump’s Secretary of State Wants Assata Shakur Re-Imprisoned | News | teleSUR English: In an interview spanning a range of foreign policy issues with website Latin America Goes Global, Tillerson described Shakur as a "fugitive," saying, “I will engage bilaterally and multilaterally (with Raul Castro’s government) to bring these fugitives to justice.”

Tillerson also hinted that he would roll back the historic thaw in frozen U.S.-Cuba relations launched under Obama, a position that Trump has often repeated, arguing that the U.S. should demand a better "deal" from Cuba.

Tillerson also echoed long-held sentiments of many Republican lawmakers who reject a move toward ending the half-century-long blockade on the island, saying, "I will press Cuba to meet its pledge to become more democratic and consider placing conditions on trade or travel policies to motivate the release of political prisoners.”

Shakur, a Queens-born activist and referred to in the interview with Tillerson by her former name Joanne Chesimard, was the first woman to be put on the FBI's most wanted terrorist list. She was added to the list on the 40th anniversary of the New Jersey Turnpike shootout that led to her imprisonment.
