- WE WANT FREEDOM. WE WANT POWER TO DETERMINE THE DESTINY OF
OUR BLACK AND OPPRESSED COMMUNITIES.
We believe that Black and oppressed people will not
be free until we are able to determine our destinies in our own
by fully controlling all the institutions which
in our communities.

and obligated to give every person employment or a guaranteed

the businessmen and placed in the community so that
the people of the community can organize and employ all of its
and give a high standard of living.

AND OPPRESSED COMMUNITIES.
We believe that this racist government has robbed us
and now we are demanding the overdue debt of forty acres and
acres and two mules were promised 100 years ago as
restitution for slave labor and mass murder of Black people.
accept the payment in currency which will be distributed
to our many
communities. The American racist has taken part in the
slaughter of our fifty
million Black people. Therefore, we feel this is a
modest demand that we make.
- WE WANT DECENT HOUSING, FIT FOR THE SHELTER OF HUMAN BEINGS.
We believe that if the landlords will not give decent
our Black and oppressed communities, then housing and
the land should be made into cooperatives so that the people
communities, with government aid, can build and make
- WE WANT DECENT EDUCATION FOR OUR PEOPLE THAT EXPOSES THE TRUE
NATURE OF THIS DECADENT AMERICAN SOCIETY. WE WANT EDUCATION
US OUR TRUE HISTORY AND OUR ROLE IN THE PRESENT-DAY
SOCIETY. We believe in an educational system that will give to
people a knowledge of the self. If you do not have knowledge
and your position in the society and in the world,
then you will
have little chance to know anything else.
- WE WANT COMPLETELY FREE HEALTH CARE FOR All BLACK AND OPPRESSED
We believe that the government must provide, free of
charge, for the people, health facilities which will not only
most of which have come about as a result of our oppression,
but which will also develop preventive medical programs
to guarantee our future survival. We believe that mass health
research programs must be developed to give all Black
people access to advanced scientific and medical information,
so we may provide our selves with proper medical attention
- WE WANT AN IMMEDIATE END TO POLICE BRUTALITY AND MURDER OF
BLACK PEOPLE, OTHER PEOPLE OF COLOR, All OPPRESSED PEOPLE
We believe that the racist and fascist government of
the United States uses its domestic enforcement agencies to carry
its program of oppression against black people, other
and poor people inside the united States. We believe
it is our right, therefore, to defend ourselves against such
and that all Black and oppressed people should be armed

- WE WANT AN IMMEDIATE END TO ALL WARS OF AGGRESSION.
We believe that the various conflicts which exist around
the world stem directly from the aggressive desire of the
United States ruling
circle and government to force its domination upon
people of the world. We believe that if the United
States government or its lackeys do not cease these aggressive
it is the
right of the people to defend themselves by any means
- WE WANT FREEDOM FOR ALL BLACK AND OPPRESSED PEOPLE NOW HELD
IN U. S. FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY, CITY AND MILITARY PRISONS
WE WANT TRIALS BY A JURY OF PEERS FOR All PERSONS
CHARGED WITH SO-CALLED CRIMES UNDER THE LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY.
We believe that the many Black and poor oppressed people
now held in United States prisons and jails have not received
trials under a racist and fascist judicial system and
be free from incarceration. We believe in the ultimate
elimination of all wretched, inhuman penal institutions, because
masses of men and women imprisoned inside the United States
United States military are the victims of oppressive
conditions which are the real cause of their imprisonment. We
that when persons are brought to trial they must be guaranteed,
United States, juries of their peers, attorneys of
their choice and freedom from imprisonment while awaiting trial.
- WE WANT LAND, BREAD, HOUSING, EDUCATION, CLOTHING, JUSTICE,
PEACE AND PEOPLE'S COMMUNITY CONTROL OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY.
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary
for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have
with another, and to assume, among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature
God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions
requires that they should declare the causes which impel
them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted
among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;
that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these
ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such
principles, and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall
seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence,
indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not
be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all
experience hath shown that mankind are most disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing
the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train
of abuses and usurpation, pursuing invariably the same object,
evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is
their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and
to provide new guards for their future security.
