LA supporter of the Black Panther 8 are demonstrating to free them Wed 2-14, 5 PM at downtown fed bldg and holding a film benefit Sat 2-17 4-7 pm

Emergency demonstration for Black Panther 8 Wednesday 2-14, 5 PM

For immediate release -- Please forward widely

What: Rally and Press Conference to Support

Freedom for the Black Panther Eight

When: Wednesday, February 14, 5:00 PM

Where: Downtown Los Angeles Federal Building, 300

N. Los Angeles Street at Temple

Who: Panther Eight Unity Mission, including

Black Riders Liberation Party, Jericho Amnesty Coalition Los Angeles

On the occasion of a bail reduction hearing set

in San Francisco for four of the eight former

Black Panthers recently indicted on 36-year-old

charges based on police torture of some of the

defendants and of the key witness for the

prosecution, there will be an emergency support

demonstration and press conference to demand

freedom for the BP8 and all political prisoners.

It will take place on Wednesday, February 14 at

5:00 PM outside the downtown Federal Building on

Los Angeles Street at Temple Street. Although the

eight former Blank Panther Party members,

including local Altadena residents Ray Boudreaux

and Hank Jones, are facing trial in San

Francisco, there has been clear federal

involvement from the very beginning, in 1971, as

part of the COINTELPRO attack on the Black

liberation movement. Therefore, members of the

Panther Eight Unity Mission are taking their

public action at the Los Angeles Federal Building.

Although the Eight are charged with conspiracy to

kill a police officer, the real conspiracy was

the COINTELPRO secret dirty war on the Black

freedom movement and other liberation struggles,

in which the FBI and local police forces killed,

tortured, framed up, shot up and otherwise waged

chemical, psychological and other forms of

warfare on the Panthers. The new indictments are

an attempt to lock up people who withstood and

exposed torture and remained steadfast in their

commitment to and love of their people. It is

also designed to intimidate supporters of new

Congressional hearings into COINTELPRO, and to

prevent the parole of two of the new defendants,

Jalil Muntaquin and Herman Bell, who have already

served more than 30 years in prison for their

involvement in the Black liberation movement.

All people of conscience are invited to attend

the rally and press conference. Endorsing groups

include the Black Riders Liberation Party, the

Jericho Amnesty Coalition, the Danza Mexica

Cuauhtemoc, the Puerto Rican Alliance, Asians for

Jericho and Mumia, Union del Barrio, Anti-Racist

Action, and others that have come together to

support the Black Panther Eight and the Committee

to Defend Human Rights, their defense effort.

Press statements from the community groups

involved, a fact sheet on the case, and contact

information for the prisoners will be available

at the rally and press conference.

Also don't forget the LA premiere showing of

"Legacy of Torture: The War Against the Black

Liberation Movement," a powerful new documentary

about the former Panthers base around their

recent incarceration as Grand Jury resisters and

their torture back in 1971. It takes place

Saturday, February 14 from 4-7:00 PM at the

Southern California Library for Social Studies &

Research, 6120 S. Vermont between Slauson & Gage.

The showing will benefit the defense of the Eight, as well as their

CUANDO: Miercoles, 14 de Febrero 2007

DONDE: En frente del Edificio Federal en Los Angeles.

300 N. Calle Los Angeles, Los Angeles, Calif.

HORA: 5:00 de la tarde

En la occasion de una audiencia para reducir la

cantidad de fianza programada para San Francisco,

el mismo dia, para cuatro de ocho antiguos

miembros de las Panteras Negras, recientemente

arrestados con cargos con 36 años de antiguedad

basados en tortura policiaca contra algunos de

los ausados y del testigo principal para la

prosecucion, se llevara a cabo una manifestacion

de emergencia y conferencia de prensa para exigir

la libertad de los 8 de las Panteras Negras y

todos los presos politicos en los EEUU.

Aunque los 8 de las Panteras Negras enfrentan

un juicio en San Franciso, es claro que ha habido

intervencion federal desde el inicio del caso en

1971, como parte un ataque contra el movimiento

de liberacion negra. Es por eso, que miembros de

la Mision Unida por los 8 Panteras estan

organizando esta accion enfrente del Edificio Federal en Los Angeles.

Aunque los Ocho estan acusados de una

conspiracion para asesinar a un oficial de la

policia, la verdadera conspiracion fue la guerra

sucia de COINTELPRO, contra el movimiento de

liberacion de la gente negra y otras luchas

libertarias, en la cual la FBI y las fuerzas de

la policia local asesinaron, torturaron,

balearon, y generalmente ejercieron una guerra

quimica y psicologica contra las Panteras Negras.

Estas acusaciones contra los 8 Panteras, es un

esfuerzo para encarcelar a gente que sobrevivio y

denuncio la tortura y manteniendose comprometidos y con amor por su


Auspician: Black Riders Liberation Party,

the Jericho Amnesty Coalition, the Danza Mexica

Cuauhtemoc, la Alianza Puertorriquena, Asians

for Jericho and Mumia Union del barrio, Accion

Anti-Racista y otros grupos y individuos en apoyo

de los 8 Panteras negras y el Committee to

Defend Human Rights (Comite en Defensa de

Derechos Humanos), el comite defensor para los 8.
