This first issue of the Legal Alliance for Greensboro Justice Newsletter, dating from circa June, 1980, includes news of the grand jury investigation and trial on the November 3, 1979 "Greensboro Massacre" where five protestors were killed at a "Death to the Klan" march. Reported from the viewpoint of the Communist Workers Party (CWP), articles focus on the CWP's rejection of the proceedings, their refusal to participate or cooperate, the possibility of a government conspiracy, and on organizing activities in Greensboro. It is argued that the victims themselves, as well as the CWP, are being placed on trial, and that this justifies the CWP's lack of cooperation with the government. A cover-up is alleged, and specific points against the Greensboro police department and district attorney's office are outlined.
Included in this newsletter are photographs of Wilena Cannon being arrested, as well as Nelson Johnson, Roslyn Pelles, Dale Sampson, Wilena Cannon, Paul Bermanzohn and Tom Clark at a press conference. Note that the document may be missing several pages (only ten are present, but a “page 14” is referenced), however all articles included are intact.
