BLACK PANTHER PARTY The Black Panther Party (BPP) was very supportive of César Chávez and the United Farm Workers’ movement and their boycott of grapes, lettuce, Gallo wine, Safeway markets, etc. All of this was extensively promoted in The Black Panther, the BPP newspaper. The BPP also helped publicize agricultural pesticide dangers for farm workers and consumers. In July 1973, the BPP launched a major boycott against six Oakland Safeway supermarkets. In addition to publishing many articles on the UFW and the boycott, The Black Panther frequently carried a UFW fundraising coupon to send support directly to the UFW. The BPP supported the Chicano movement in many other ways, such as in funding the publication of the Chicano newspaper, Basta Ya!, and in defending Chicano political prisoners, including Los Siete (The Latino Seven).
