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 Brown: Grand jury resister and former black panther *
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.
