I have been really, really busy thus unable to utilize this outstanding blog system we have here, now that I got a few minutes I want to share some of the struggle we have been going through in the course of the last year or so, where do I begin? hmmm we received a phone call from a Brother, Lumumba Bandele in which he stated "ya'll must remove the video www.eyesoftherainbow.com we shared with him that we were only offering it to the membership here at Assata Shakur Speaks and that removing it at that time from our site was not on the table, we went on to state since they were selling it, we were more than willing to provide a link to the site selling it www.happybirthdayassata.org and would even promote it in an effort to boost their sales, after a little back and forth Brother Lumumba Bandele hung up in the middle of the discussion.
Enter Afrocubaweb.com www.afrocubaweb.com some mystery writer "Andy Petit" hey isn't that a baseball player? wrote the following:
"Jacuma Kambui is head of the Talking Drum Collective and the owner of AssataShakur.org, which purports to support Assata in her struggles. He has left a dubious trail on one of Davey D's forums which starts with an interview of Willie “Mukasa” Ricks, a legendary veteran of the US civil rights struggles who originated the use of "Black Power". Kambui then kicks in with an attack on the interviewer, Kalonji Jama Changa, who responds by accusing Kambui of being a manipulator and thief. Two of Kambui's associates join him in this sad trail, Darnell Crawford and Alexis Lucas - they apparently developed a web site for the Prisoners of Conscience Committee (POCC), took in orders, never fulfilled them, and kept the money.
Changa further specifies that Crawford was an information specialist at the US Army's Tank and Armament Command in Warren, MI, something he did his best to hide from others as he pontificated on Army surveillance of militants.
Kambui's response to the many accusations is to summon two lists of activists who are supposed to support him. Someone checked out 5 persons on the second one at the bottom of the forum and they had not agreed to the posted statement.
Kambui maintains a profile on RBG Worldwide 1 Nation with an odd picture of the webmeister peering out of a blinded window, an automatic weapon in hand.
His work on www.assatashakur.org is increasingly being called into question as he has posted copyrighted materials without permission and despite repeated calls to remove them. The sly old dog thinks his slick net moves are actually beyond elementary forensics."
LMBAO here look for yourself http://afrocubaweb.com/kambui.htm although I appreciate the attention given, I even waited one year to the day before responding, mofo's need to get their facts straight.... This drivel is being hosted on Afrocubaweb.com by our misguided Sister Angele Dublin and "Paul" her europeon mate, this reactionary feces is also driven by a host of lies and deceit, of which I will get to shortly.
Enter Attorney Jill Soffiyah Elijah (google her)
an outstanding Warrior on behalf of our People and our POWs behind enemy lines, I received a call from Sister Elijah in regards to the movie Eyes Of The Rainbow www.eyesoftherainbow.com Sister Elijah stated that we were in violation of the copyright laws and that we must remove the film immediately, I shared with Sister Elijah, that unless Mama Evelyn (Assata's Attorney and Auntie) co-signed her requests, removing the movie wasn't a possibility at that time, I also asked her since she had stated "Mama Evelyn is in contact with her" I assumed that Sister Jill asking Mama Evelyn to co-sign her request wouldn't be a problem, apparently it was.
Jill's Letter To our then hosting company and her follow up letter after our phone conversation Sister Elijah then coerced our former hosting company www.hostgator.com into violating its own policy, through lies and deceit, to her credit she also was successful in hacking www.assatashakur.org for about 14 hours

We therefore strongly recommend that you immediately remove the Infringing Materials.
Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, you have the right to file a "counter-notice" claiming that either (a) that the Claimant is wrong and that the Infringing Material is lawfully posted on the Web Site or (b) that the Infringing Material has been misidentified.

#1) We have removed this content off of AssataShakur.Org so please restore our account ASAP. The only reason this content has been removed is so our users will not suffer through what we believe is a hacking attempt which you have helped through your inappropriate actions. These inappropriate actions include failure to notify us on the May 1, 2008 of this claim and failure to validate this claim before suspending our accounts for AssataShakur.org and PanAfrican.TV. We can not remove the content off of PanAfrican.TV without having full web access to the site since all content is added and deleted through its web administration control panel.
#2) We believe this is a successful hacking effort. there are a couple things very suspicious about this letter.
a. There is no proof Gloria Rolando or Assata Shakur are the copyright owners of the content.
b. There is no proof a copyright exist.
c. There is no proof Jill Soffiyah Elijah is a lawyer.
d. There is no proof Jill Soffiyah Elijah is the lawyer for Gloria Rolando or Assata Shakur.
e. There is no proof the claims by Jill Soffiyah Elijah are the wishes of Gloria Rolando or Assata Shakur.
f. There is no proof Gloria Rolando or Assata Shakur are real persons.
With all of these unverified variables we find it extremely disappointing that HostGator.com, LLC has taken inappropriate actions towards a paying customer. We'd like to counter-claim that if within one week - seven (7) days - from today May 9, 2008
1.) a copyright document from the U.S. Copyright Office is produced with the copyright owners listed as Gloria Rolando and Assata Shakur.
2.) a letter signed by Gloria Rolando and Assata Shakur is produced expressing they would like the content off of our sites, AssataShakur.Org or PanAfrican.TV we will happily remove the content permanently. But if these items can not be produced we will be forced to believe Jill Soffiyah Elijah's claims to be fictitious and thus a successful hacking effort. Furthermore, if this claim is found to be fictitious legal action against HostGator.com, LLC and Jill Soffiyah Elijah should be anticipated. We expect to see verifiable documentation by May 16, 2008 10:30am EST.
