The San Francisco 8 are being held in de facto terms with NO
bail. Reducing a so-called bail from five million to three million
dollars is like stealing a body from a grave and claiming that

Exactly what does the Constitution and the Bill
of Rights Guarantee?
All told, nothing!
We must never forget: The working class and the oppressed, of
this country, have no rights that they are unable or unwilling
Only the conscious and uncompromising intervention of all those
who understand the true nature of this frame-up can free the San
