KPIX Eyewitness news footage from July 31st, 1971 featuring a protest outside Bill's Liquor, an African-American owned liquor store on Grove Street in Oakland, over the owner's refusal to donate money to the Black Panther Party's community initiatives, or "Survival Programs." Contains an interview with Bobby Seale, who discusses the importance of the Party's Survival Programs against a backdrop of protesters carrying signs that say "Don't Support This Store," "Support The Store That Supports The Survival Programs," and "Don't Buy From The Greedy." Seale cites free clothing, free shoes, free medical clinics, free breakfast for children, the Intercommunal Youth Institute, free legal aid, and education for the community, among others, as examples of Survival Programs run by the Panthers that benefit the community. Remastered, edited and catalogued for the web by Shira Peltzman.
