Featured Speakers:

* Rob Los Ricos: Anarchist activist, writer and former political prisoner *
Rob "los Ricos" Thaxton is an anarchist activist and writer who was
recently released after serving 7 years in Oregon prisons. We are
raising funds to support Rob while he adjusts to life on the outside.
This will be his first speaking engagement in the Bay Area since his
release in June.

Richard recently spent several weeks in prison for resisting a grand
jury subpoena. He is speaking on his experiences with the black panther
party and the history of state repression against movements for social
change. He is a close friend and comrade of John Bowman and is speaking
to help raise funds for John's medical expenses.


Raffle:

John Bowman, a former Black Panther and recent SF Grand Jury resister,
has just been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. We are trying to
raise $5-10,000 to help him seek additional medical care in the hopes
of extending his life. This brother is a wonderful human being and has
given the best part of his life to his community and the original
principles of the Black Panther Party.
