Description:

Alternative title: Bill Richman: WANTED by the Feds: 27 Felonies--241 Years Announces: Appearance by one of the Mao Tsetung Defendants, Bill Richman, in Seattle (Thursday, October 25, 2:00 P.M., UW, HUB Room 200 and Saturday, October 27, 7:30 P.M., Revolutionary Worker Center, 6010 Empire Way South) and Olympia (Friday, October 26, 2:30 P.M., Evergreen Stage College, Lecture Hall 2). Calls for: "Free the Mao Tsetung Defendants and Stop the Railroad of Bob Avakian." Background information: "On January 29, 1979, RCP Chairman Bob Avakian rose to address hundreds of Maoist revolutionaries in Washington, D.C. … Deng [Xiaoping] was in Washington to cement a close new alliance with U.S. imperialism … At the 1979 Deng demonstration, Chairman Avakian had been arrested, along with others who became known as the Mao Tsetung Defendants. And the government threatened him with several lifetimes in prison on trumped-up charges--forcing him into exile in 1980." (Avakian, Bob. (1997). The Towering Crimes of Deng Xiaoping. Revolutionary Worker #896. Retrieved from http://rwor.org/a/firstvol/890-899/896/dengba.htm) Note on date: Although 1972 is penciled on the document, this flier could not have been created before "Teng Hsaio Ping" [Deng Xiaoping] visited Washington D.C. in 1979.
