Demonstrators carry signs that read "Unity Now!", "Fight Fascism" and "Free Huey" A cameraman can be seen filming the demonstration from a high rise building. A demonstrator speaks to the crowd using a megaphone to say, "the Black Panther Party is not separate from black people. The whole history of black people is not separate from the Black Panther Party; it's not separate from what's happening to the Black Panther Party, today, tomorrow, and yesterday." Please note there is some audio distortion present. Remastered, edited and catalogued for the web by Shira Peltzman.
