by POCC Minister of Information JR

Chairman-Fred-tour-1109-web2, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. Speaking Tour: 'You Can Kill a Revolutionary But You Can't Kill the Revolution!', Local News & Views Prisoners of Conscience Committee Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. will be hitting Northern Cali with the “You Can Kill a Revolutionary But You Can’t Kill the Revolution” tour to talk about the 40th anniversary of the assassination of his father, Deputy Chairman Fred Hampton of the Illinois Black Panther Party, and his comrade, Defense Captain Mark Clark, by the U.S. government on Dec. 4, 1969, on the West Side of Chicago.

He will be aided in his mission by former Minister of Culture Emory Douglas and Elbert “Big Man” Howard, formerly of the Black Panther Party, Boots from the Street Sweepers Social Club and the rap group the Coup, Hip Hop journalist Davey D, and Queen Nandi from Poor News Network.

The tour starts on Nov. 7 at the Black Dot Cafe in West Oakland, then on Nov. 9 at Sonoma State University. Nov. 10 he will be in Stanford, Nov. 11 he will be at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill and at Barrios Unidos in Santa Cruz. On the 12th he will speak at Poor Magazine in San Francisco and on Nov. 13 the tour will conclude at the Niebyl Proctor Library in North Oakland.

This tour is part of an ongoing fundraising campaign to keep the Bay View newspaper and the Block Report Radio show in the business of providing the masses of people with uncensored news that is important for us to get because it allows us to make educated decisions in our community’s self interest and generally in the interest of all oppressed people.

We are inviting everybody to come be a part of this historic tour, especially in light of how the Bay Area has been rocked in 2009 by the police executions of Oscar Grant, Lovelle Mixon and others. We are asking for a donation of $10-$10,000 to attend but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. We’ll see you there.

Long Live Chairman Fred and Mark Clark! Long Live the Black Panther Party! All Power to the People! Free ‘Em All!
