Description
New Orleans: Harold Holmes (UR), one of the Black Panther-affiliated 'National Committee to Combat Fascism' members, barricaded in a unit of the Desire Housing Project, draws cheers 11/19 from a crowd in the Project, after police who came to evict the group, withdrew for 24 hours. Lawyers for the Panthers asked for the time to take a state trespass law to court. The Panthers have said they would die in their headquarters before they would surrender.
