Sekou Odinga is a u.s.-held political prisoner of war. Imprisoned over 30 years for fighting for the freedom of Black people and the building of the Republic of New Afrika.
"I am a Political Prisoner of War! What war? The war of national liberation that has been going since Afrikans were first kidnapped and brought to the Americas and enslaved. Some of us have never agreed to be American and have struggled to free and build the Republic of New Afrika. Under international law, oppressed people have that right, the right to be free of their oppression and to build a nation that will protect their right to be free and independent. That's what we were doing... That's why I'm now a Political Prisoner of War." Sekou Odinga.
