WHAT IS THE WHITE PANTHERS ?
The White Panthers stand in the
vanguard of the most powerful movement for social change in America, that
dynamic episode generally referred to as Rock n Roll.
It is the sole organization in the entire history of struggle against
the oppression of Rock in the United
States, that is armed to promote a revolutionary agenda, and it represents
the last great thrust by people for equality, justice and freedom.
The ideals and activities are so
radical, it was at one time assailed by FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover as "the
greatest threat to the internal security of the United States." Its
history and lessons remain so challenging and controversial that established
texts and media have attempted to erase all reference from American history

THE NINE POINT PLAN
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.
