Description: This uncredited July 24, 1982, article from The [Raleigh] News and Observer discusses a claim by members of the Communist Workers Party (CWP) that the group has evidence of an FBI conspiracy in the violence at the Death to the Klan march in Greensboro on November 3, 1979, which resulted in the deaths of five Communist Workers Party members. The evidence cited was a 1981 letter refuting FBI claims that the CWP had not been under investigation prior to the incident.
