“I don’t want the FBI to be helped by anything I have to say on the phone, so I’ll just say that things have already changed hands and will continue to change hands,” Robert Avakian, spokesman for the Student Organizing Committee (SOC) told BARB.
SOC advocates giving technical and political assistance to groups like the Black Panthers, and possibly will use money left over from the FSM deferments’ fund to supply this assistance.
Avakian will attend the National Conference for New Politics on August 31, He will officially represent the Berkeley CNP and unofficially represent the SOC.
“I want the NCNP to call upon the United Nations to issue a resolution condemning: the United States for genocide in Vietnam and the U.S. regarding the Black people,” he declared.
“The U.S. government should make reparation to these people. If the CNP won’t accept this, I’ll try to do it myself.”
