      If you want to listen to the KPFA broadcast on Friday, it's pretty easy to
      stream on www.kpfa.org either live or later as an archive program. I think
      this case of the S.F. 8 is a clear signal of the imminent repression of all
      dissent here in the U.S. -- i.e., of more and worse to come. We better nip
      it in the bud...

      Dear friends, Wednesday Feb 21st

      Nationally Syndicated Radio series, Making Contact is releasing a radio
      version of the video by Freedom Archives “Legacy of Torture. The War
      Against The Black Liberation Movement” on the torture in ‘73 and grand jury
      ’05 of former Black Panthers. Given the January arrests of SF8 etc. this is
      especially timely! MP3s etc at http://radioproject.org/archive/2007/0807.html

      In the bay area it should air on KPFA 94.1FM on Friday Feb 23 at 1:30pm.
      See airtimes for other locations ***** or suggest to your local station
      that they play it as a special, (it’s free!) if they don’t already carry
      Making Contact every week. Nat’l & Internat’l Airtimes at

      Legacy of Torture #08-07

      In 1971, John Young, a San Francisco police officer was killed. Members of
      the Black Panther party were arrested, charged and then tortured by San
      Francisco and New Orleans police. Since the police used torture to extract
      their confessions, eventually, the charges were dismissed. Now more than 35
      years later, the case has been reopened. On January 23rd, 2007, some of
      those same men were arrested again.

      In this special documentary from the Freedom Archives, we hear from some of
      the accused men themselves. They describe the torture and how they were
      targeted for their political activities.

      Featuring: Ray Boudreaux, John Bowman, Richard Brown, Hank Jones, former
      Black Panther and Harold Taylor, former Black Panthers; Soffiyah Elijah,
