Description: This flyer, produced by the Committee to Avenge the CWP 5, decries the the Durham County Hospital Corporation's (DCHC) firing of Communist Workers Party (CWP) member Tom Clark as a result of his participation in the November 3, 1979 Greensboro Massacre. The flyer also points to other workplace violations including a health issue involving tuberculosis, workers harassment, racial discrimination, a wage freeze, firings, and crackdowns on the use of paid time off benefits. The flyer accuses the DCHC of doing "the work of the Klan even without the hoods and the sheets."
