Description: This undated statement expresses “outrage and sorrow” over the deaths of the five Communist Workers Party members killed in Greensboro at the November 3, 1979 Death to the Klan march. The statement criticizes the Greensboro police, the media characterization of the event as a “shoot-out,” and the “increasing violence of the political right.” The statement is signed by “a group of concerned triangle citizens.” [The triangle refers to the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, NC area.]
