Statement by (POCC/BPPC) Prisoners of Conscience Committee/Black Panther Party Cubs. 
Chairman Fred Hampton Jr.

(Chicago, Illinois), - 08/30/16 – The annual Chairman Fred Streetz Party is being held in commemoration of Illinois Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton’s birthday. We will commence with the People’s Press Conference at 11:45 AM and a Silent Salute at 12:00 noon. At 12:05 a Vigil/Virtual tour will be conducted by the December 4th Committee Chair, Akua Njeri, widow of Chairman Fred Hampton and survivor of December 4, Massacre On Monroe. 

Come prepared for The Great March to The Wall (Northeast Corner Madison & California), at 1:15 pm; followed by the Streetz Party at the wall from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. As it was in life, it remains in legacy, the attack on the struggle for self-determination, led by then director of the F.B.I., J. Edgar Hoover, who deemed the Black Panther Party to be the number one threat to internal security of the United States – continues today. 

 How was the Black Panther Party an internal threat? By providing the first Free Breakfast Programs, Free Medical Clinics and many other survival programs, that provided vehicles for the people to fight in their own interests. Chairman Fred Hampton organized the original Rainbow Coalition that brought people across diverse racial, political, gender and class interests, to fight together on specific points of unity. 

Join us at the KLEO Center, 119 East Garfield Blvd from 7 pm-8 pm, with Dr. Kelly Harris and Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. POCC/BPPC - Cointelpro Then and Now. From 8:00 pm-9 pm we will host the Police Terrorism – People’s Pain Panel with Akua Njeri, Dorothy Holmes, Mother of Ronald Johnson; Samir Rice, Mother of Tamir Rice and Panzy Edwards, mother of Dakota Bright. We will host additional family representatives - victims of police terrorism. From 9:00 pm-10:00 pm the Panther Panel - #ForwardToThe50th will be hosted by Akua Njeri, Stan McKinney, Harold Bell and Henry Nesbitt. From 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm Black Panther Cubs programs and campaign updates will be discussed. Central Committee & Local Chapter updates will precede International Solidarity statements and reports from Secwepemc Women Warriors, Ancestral Pride, Save the Kids and Behind the Walls.

I Can't Breathe! By Chairman Fred Hampton Jr.

I Can't Breathe!
Ya'll choking me...ya'll choking me! 
I can't breathe!

In one way or another ya'll got me, mine and all of my kind. Locked down behind enemy lines. And I can't leave! 

Ya'll killing me..ya'll killing me!  

From Haiti to Cleveland to Baltimore and DC. Ya'll turning my whole damn community into nothing but a crime scene. Ya'll foreclosing my homes and forcing me out into the streets.

 Ya'll choking me..ya'll choking me.
 I can't breathe!

 In the Chi. ya'll strategically shut down all transportation in the urban areas called the Red line. Then like mad scientists ya'll simultaneously shut down fifty public schools at the same damn time. 

Ya'll choking me. Ya'll choking me. 
And I can't read! 

Like a double edged sword that cut both ways and made me bleed. Ya'll flooded me with water throughout the 9th Ward and the rest of New Orleans. And then denied me and cut off all my water supply in Detroit and left me to die like a mass murderer leaving a crime scene. 

They shooting me...They shooting me! 
And I can't stop bleeding.

In Florida after Ziggerman was clearly the trigger man. And literally gunned that child down. Your corrupt ass courts come quoting some sh*t about 'Stand your Ground'.

They still shooting me. They still shooting me. 
And I'm still bleeding! 

Another child down. This time in Ferguson, Mo.. Or better yet, as we call it now..Mike Brown Town! They electroshocking our sex organs. And after they kill us. Somehow in some strange way our bodies are coming up missing out of them morgues. 

They sticking plungers up our babies rectums.  
Some of us been so dogged out, we stuck in denial. 
While a number of the others got they heads bowed and eyes closed. 

Simply hoping that they baby don't be the next one.
In CHIRAQ! They done shot Ronald Johnson all in his back. 
Then in New York Eric Garner family had to tell his babies that Daddy ain't never coming back! 

They choking me. They choking me! 
And I can't breathe!"
