The following is a statement re-
leased at the press conference of
the Black Panther Party on March 1:

The Black Panther Party has always
existed to serve, protect and lead
the struggle of all Black and oppres- '
sed people. We are strongly dedicated
in our revolutionary commitment and
we have suffered many forms of repres-
sion by the police, sometimes Pesult
ing in the death of many brothers and
We find at this time that we owe .
an apology to our people and the many f
groups who have worked with and sup-
ported us since the inception of the
Party for the mistakes we've made.
These serious mistakes have had a de-
trimental effect on the struggle.
Because of the opportunistic na- w
ture prevalent in some members of
the leading body of the party we see
that many statements, practices and
positions that the Party has taken
on various issues have begun to alien-
ate us from our community and the :i
people whom we serve.

Committee have seen fit to no longer
