Greensboro Justice Fund Says FBI Lied About Involvement in Nov. 3rd Murders, Calls for Appointment of Special Prosecutor
July 9, 1982
Greensboro Justice Fund
The Greensboro Justice Fund was organized in 1980, in response to the Greensboro Massacre of November 3, 1979. It continues to assist organizations working for racial justice in the South.
This July 9, 1982 press release from the Greensboro Justice Fund outlines various pieces of evidence which point to FBI involvement in the murder of five Communist Workers Party members at the Death to the Klan march in Greensboro, North Carolina, on November 3, 1979. Due to potential FBI involvement, the Greensboro Justice Fund is requesting the appointment of a special prosecutor in the current federal grand jury investigation.
