On Sunday January 15, 2012 CEMOTAP will hold a Legal Support Fundraiser for Brother Shaka Shakur at CEMOTAP Center located at 135-05 Rockaway Boulevard South Ozone Park Queens NY.
Brother Shaka Shakur (slave name Sherrod Dubois) is home after being released from Bronx Criminal Court on his own recognizance yesterday thanks to the diligent work of attorney Michael Tarif Warren and the political work of Brother Shep who sounded the community alarm on the internet.
Shaka, coordinator of the Peoples Survival Program in Harlem was arrested at work after a taskforce of police agents raided his home in the Bronx with a baseless warrant. In the course of the raid the police also took the opportunity to raid the home of former Black Panther Cyril (Bullwhip) Innis (without a warrant), Bullwhip's home, has in the past been one of the places of storage of the archives of the Black Panther Partys legacy.
Bullwhip was not arrested
Shaka has been one of the younger generations leaders who has followed the example of a earlier generation of Black Panthers who dedicated themselves to "Serve the People" programs. His work in the Peoples Survival Program and with street gangs and against violence have been exemplary.
Shaka Shakur will be back in court on February 15th

Brother Shaka was apparently targeted because of his long time community activism. Brother Shaka has most recently been working with the Peoples Survival Program feeding and clothing the homeless and hungry and the Nat Turner Collective. He is also known for his work as a recording artist for Maroon Records and for his work with the Black Panther Party and New Black Panther Party. ATTORNEYS MICHAEL AND EVELYN WARREN will also be honored at this event for their legal support of the Struggle in the past and during the 21st Century.
We willl also honor BLACK PANTHER BROHER SHEP, who sounded the community alarm which resulted in a community outpouring to the precinct on the day that Brother Shakur Shakur's home was invaded and illegally searched by police. Both Brother Shaka and Brother Shep are members of a cadre of brothers and sisters who have given support with security and other needed functions at numerous CEMOTAP and Community events, including the Great Harlem Debates, The rally to support Adelaide Sanford’s Son and the Rallies to Save the legacy of Gil Noble's Like it Is.
