of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn

SAN FRANCISCO, April 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pressure is mounting for an
expanded probe of Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife,
Bernardine Dohrn, and their alleged roles in the 1970 bombing murder of a San
Francisco policeman. Larry Grathwohl, former FBI informant in the Weather
Underground and author of Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer with the
Weathermen, will repeat his sworn testimony that points to the involvement of
the Weather Underground in the bombing murder of Sgt. Brian V. McDonnell at a
12:30 p.m.News Conference on Thursday, April 23, 2009, at the Marriott
Courtyard San Francisco Downtown, 299 Second Street, in the Rincon Hill room.
Grathwohl says that he was at a meeting where Ayers said that his wife Dohrn
had planted the bomb

The San Francisco Police Officers Association has publicly supported the call
for a renewed investigation, saying the evidence points to Ayers and Dohrn as
the perpetrators. 

The News Conference is being sponsored by the Campaign for Justice for Victims
of Weather Underground Terrorism, a project of investigative journalist Cliff
Kincaid'sAmerica's Survival, Inc.  "Forty years is too long to wait for
justice," Kincaid said. "Let's bring the cop-killers to justice." Kincaid's
web site www.usasurvival.org has exclusive reports on the bombing and
Communist Cuban support for the Weather Underground.

The cold case of Sgt. Brian V. McDonnell, killed in 1970 when a bomb exploded
at the San Francisco Park Police Station, has been reopened by law enforcement
authorities. Grathwohl, Cliff Kincaid, and retired San Francisco Police
Sergeant Jim Pera, one of the first on the scene of the bombing, will discuss
the McDonnell case, the violent history of the Weather Underground, and the
reemergence of its members in political and campus organizing activities.

speaking tour in the Bay Area.
