News Brief

The Black Panther movement, a group representing poverty neighborhoods, said Wednesday it will fight the Treasury’s intentions to cut children’s allowances for a family’s first there children. Both factions of the movement — the one linked with the Communist Party and the one which is part of Shell — held a joint press conference here promising “not to keep quiet.” Spokesman Manny Cohen said the movement would take some “radical action” because any cuts in children’s allowances would particularly hurt the poor people. Communist Party MK Charlie Biton estimated that some 40,000 families would be hurt by the cuts.
