Description: This resolution adopted by the governing board of the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America expresses concern for the victims of the violence at the Death to the Klan march in Greensboro, North Carolina, on November 3, 1979, at which five Communist Workers Party members were murdered. The resolution reaffirms the right of citizens to peacefully assemble and demonstrate, and raises questions about the activities of law enforcement at the time of the killings. Ultimately the resolution urges the Secretary of the Treasury and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice to disclose the process of the federal investigation.
