Black August Los Angeles

"Settle your quarrles, come together,
understand the reality of our situation,
understand that fascism is already here,
that people are dying who could be saved,
that generations more will die or live poor
butchered half-lives if you fail to act.
Do what must be done, discover your
humanity and your love in revolution.
Pass on the torch. Join us..."
"The sooner begun, the sooner done."
Comrade George Jackson
