Eight former Black Panthers were arrested January 23rd, 2007 in California, New York and Florida on 30 year old charges related to the 1971 killing of a San Francisco police officer. Similar charges were thrown out after it was revealed that police used torture to extract false confessions from some of these same men who were arrested in New Orleans in 1973.

This event will feature a talk and Q&A session by Derrick Jensen, a longtime activist, speaker and author whose works include The Culture of Make Believe, A Language Older than Words, Welcome to the Machine: Science, Surveillance, and the Culture of Control, and most recently Endgame for which he was named the Press Action person of the year. His writings consider injustice, oppression and the overwhelming assault on the natural world, and explore the part our technologized and industrial civilization has to play in these atrocities. For more information about Derrick Jensen please visit http://www.derrickjensen.org.

SF8 committee member Penny Schoner will give an update on the case and offer ways we can show support.

All proceeds from this event will go to benefit the San Francisco 8.
