"More than 1,000 advance registrations have been received for the National Committees to Combat Fascism in America, opening with a session at the Oakland Auditorium on Friday, the 18th, and continuing with seven sessions ending Sunday evening. The conference represents an effort to bring together, for the first time, groups actively opposing the fascist tendencies which they see being manifested in American life and to reveal the extent to which they exist.

Delegates are being sent by organizations representing students and teachers, labor, religion, anti-war and ethnic groups and political movements. Among them will be SDS and BSU representatives from several campuses, womens groups including the newly formed Women Power and several peace organizations. The Medical Committee for Human Rights will present speakers; Catholic, Protestant and Jewish clergy will be among the speakers.

The conference was called by the Black Panther Party, organized nationally by four existing National Committees to Combat Fascism, and has more than 40 organizations as sponsors. The program calls for a discussion of the status of political prisoners, the relationship of workers, students, teachers and churches to the evidence of fascism. A number of documentaries and news films will be shown. Primary goals of the conference are to establish a permanent organization, plan future conferences and present ways in which community control of police may be achieved." (NCCF Press Release)
