Angela Davis on revolution (Updated over a year ago)
KQED News report featuring a press conference with Angela Davis from June 12th 1974, in which she considers the Los Angeles police department's treatment of the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) and also how the "revolution" will only happen through a mass organization of the general population. She goes on to warn that: "At this particular historical moment in our country we have to be very much concerned with building organizational forms. If we don't we may very well be facing an era of extreme repression. An era of intensified racism and I think that we are beginning to see the beginnings of that now." Also includes Charlene Mitchell reflecting on the implications of the North Carolina Supreme Court's move to reinstate the death penalty. See news film reference number KTVU 1-16 to watch Mitchell speaking about Presidential elections at a press conference from 1968.
