Support Chip now!

Romaine Chip Fitzgerald, the longest held U.S. political prisoner is due for a parole hearing in the next few months. We are asking all comrades to support Chip by signing a petition on his behalf.

Chip is a former member of the Southern California Black Panther Party. He has been incarcerated since 1969 for altercation that took place with a CHP officer during a traffic stop. Chip and several Panthers defended themselves against an officer who later admitted he had orders to shoot and kill any and all Panthers. During the altercation, the officer was
shot and Chip managed to flee.

Please support our comrade, sign the petition:
