Former Black Panther and political prisoner Francisco Torres will appearin Part "A" of Manhattan Criminal Court on the 4th floor at 100 CentreStreet on Tuesday, March 6th at 9:30 AM.
>Cisco is one of eight former Panthers charged with the killing of a San Francisco police officer in the 1970's. The original charges were dismissed over 30 years ago after a judge concluded that the confessions the prosecutors relied on were extracted through torture.
>On Tuesday a judge will hear the prosecutor's request to extradite Cisco to California. This hearing will probably be the last NYC court appearance for any of the eight Black Panther elders charged in the case and will be the last opportunity for the solidarity movement to support the 8 in a NYC

The nearest subway stop to 100 Centre Street is Canal Street on the
>#6 and J, M, N, Q, R, W and Z lines.

I am an associate and long time friend of Francisco. I am also a friend of Jalil and Bell as I served time with each in New York state's prison system. Greetings to them! Little has changed since 1971,pigs are still gunning black men down and undercharged for doing it if charged at all. There is one exception which is that they don't feel the fear that they once did for their efforts and that in itself is dreadful. In short,the absence of repraisal seems to render their trigger finger happier!!!!!
