* 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.
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.
