The Women’s March organization declared its support for Assata Shaku, convicted murderer of a police officer and a domestic terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, and three prominent Democratic senators decline to withdraw their support of the group.
The Women’s March organization claims that Shakur’s fleeing to Cuba after escaping from a U.S. prison where she was serving a life sentence was a “sign of resistance.”
In response to criticism of their position, the group reiterated their support of Shakur, although it claimed to represent a “nonviolent movement” that does not endorse all of Shakur’s actions.
Sens. Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein, and Kirsten Gillibrand have enthusiastically supported Women’s March, yet, when asked by The Daily Caller if they would disavow or condemn the group’s support for Shakur—and given more than 24 hours to respond—none of the three senators replied.
Californians were encouraged by Feinstein to participate in one of the nationwide protests organized by the Women’s March, which took place the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The week after, Feinstein referred to the sentiments of those who protested as a reason to delay the nomination of now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“Many, many millions of Americans are deeply concerned about what the future will bring. That’s a hallmark of what happened this past Saturday in the march,” Feinstein said. “The least we can do is tell them that we’re being as careful as possible in who we place in charge of making these important decisions. For every woman and man who marched over the weekend, we owe it to them.”
Harris, whom many Democratic donors are backing for a presidential run in 2020, spoke at the Women’s March on Washington. “There is nothing more powerful than a group of determined sisters marching, standing up for what is right,” she said.
In March, Harris posted a picture on social media depicting some of the supportive letters she has received in the wake of her Women’s March speech.
“I’ve been getting a few letters since the Women’s March,” she wrote. “I’ll keep fighting, you keep them coming.”

According to New York Sen. Gillibrand, the nationwide Women’s March protest in January was “the moment of the beginning of the revival of the women’s movement.”
In a February appearance on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Gillibrand said, “The Women’s March was truly the most inspiring moment of my entire life.”
Gillibrand wrote a profile for Time magazine in April featuring four Women’s March leaders, including Linda Sarsour, whose family has connections with terrorists. “It was an honor to write about them,” Gillibrand said.
