Black Panther Party 50th Anniversary

Source

On October 15, 1966, Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton have founded BPP. Their idea was simple – we can’t just talk to make the change, we must take action. They started to monitor the behavior of police officers and challenge police brutality in Oakland, California. And they succeeded. Unfortunately, the government and especially Federal Bureau of Investigation called the party “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country”. They tried to close it, to incarcerate BPP’s participants, and in 1982 the original party was dissolved.
50 years have passed since BBP’s foundation, but the situation in the country stills the same. Cops are shooting Blacks. It spreads through all the country like the disease. Nowadays we need Black Panthers as never before. We need a strong hand that can protect us, that can keep our people safe, that can make Black Lives really matter.
Let’s get together and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the party that has made the change. Let’s honor its founders and participants. Let’s share their ideas and ideals!
