FBI War On Indigenous Resistance

Rhizome Cafe, 317 E. Broadway, Vancouver, Coast Salish Territory
Video and information update on the case of John Graham, former American Indian Movement (AIM) member, Vancouver resident and current prisoner of war in South Dakota.
Graham’s former co-defendant Richard Marshall, also a former AIM member, was recently found not guilty of murdering fellow AIM member Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, whose death the FBI tried to cover-up within the context of a counter-insurgency campaign that left 60 traditonal Lakota people and AIM members dead on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota in the 1970s.
