Title

"Frame-up subverts black struggle for freedom", October 17, 1980, pg. 3, pg. 13, The Occidental

Description

Contributor Diana Takata writes an opinion about how there is a real ambivalence on the Oxy campus regarding the important fact of "oppression", and connects this to students' ignorance of "structural oppression." Her example of this is the unjust imprisonment of former leader of the Los Angeles Black Panther Party, Geronimo Pratt. The contributor urges her readers to take action, whether in the form of contacting the ACLU task force on the Pratt case, the Black Human Rights Coalition in Los Angeles, or contacting one's own congressperson. For Republicans, students should contact Republican congressman Paul McCloskey, who's active in the legal case for Pratt's innocence.
