The Black Lives Matter movement has come out in support of Fidel Castro, following his death on Friday, saying they must come to the defense of El Comandante and thanking him for safeguarding Assata Shakur, whos on the FBIs Most Wanted Terrorists list.
The movement penned an article on Sunday titled Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante on the Medium platform where they eulogized the passing of the Cuban dictator. The article, which was not bylined, was Tweeted out by the closest thing there is to an official Black Lives Matter account and also posted on the movements semi-official Facebook page.
The article claims Castros death has caused an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety.
The BLM movement is also also particularly grateful to Castro for harboring Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us. Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard, is currently on the FBIs Most Wanted Terrorists list with a $1 million bounty on her head.

Assata Olugbala Shakur (born JoAnne Deborah Byron; July 16, 1947), whose married name was Chesimard, is an African-American activist, member of the former Black Panther Party (BPP) and Black Liberation Army (BLA) who was convicted of murder in 1977. Between 1971 and 1973, Shakur was convicted of several crimes and was the subject of a multistate manhunt.
In May 1973, Shakur was involved in a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike, in which she was accused of killing New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster and grievously assaulting Trooper James Harper. BLA member Zayd Malik Shakur was also killed in the incident, and Shakur was wounded. Between 1973 and 1977, Shakur was indicted in relation to six other incidentscharged with murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, bank robbery, and kidnappingresulting in three acquittals and three dismissals. In 1977, she was convicted of the first-degree murder of Foerster and of seven other felonies related to the shootout.
Shakur was incarcerated in several prisons in the 1970s. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba in 1984 after living as a fugitive for a few years, and received political asylum. She has been living in Cuba ever since. Since May 2, 2005, the FBI has classified her as a domestic terrorist and offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture. On May 2, 2013, the FBI added her to the Most Wanted Terrorist List; the first woman to be listed. On the same day, the New Jersey Attorney General offered to match the FBI reward, increasing the total reward for her capture to $2 million.
Assata Shakur, Castro, BLM;
the one thing they have in common: they are all thugs and scum.
BLM is the walking talking embodiment of human excrement with life breathed into it by SOROS....
It has no merit and no truth and is only divisive racism and conflict is tis goal.
it represents stupidity and extorsion...
SOROS is the embodiment of evil and should be indicted for funding and inciting riots perpetrated by BLM....
LAW AND ORDER BABY...... COMING JAN 2017
