The Black Panther Party, Police Terrorism Today and Building a New Movement

October, 2014, marks the 48th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale in Oakland, California. The original focus of the BPP was on police terrorism and ideas of armed self-defense. This is especially pertinent now when there is mass murder by police of black and other people of color, paramilitary policing, and widespread government spying on the people. We will discuss the ideas of police as fascist agents, the current lack of a militant protest movement against police terrorism, and how do we move forward with radical ideas to combat it.
