Members of the May 19th Communist Organization and other of Berkman’s comrades provided support for the Black Liberation Army’s attempted robbery of a Brink’s armoured truck in Nyack, New York. In the aftermath, two policemen and a guard were killed, and several of his comrades captured. One of the get-away drivers accidently shot herself, and Berkman was called to save her life. The FBI went after him and he refused to speak before a grand jury. After seven months in jail, he was about to be indicted again. Instead he jumped bail and went underground.

Keywords:   Black Liberation Army, Brink’s robbery, FBI, Grand Jury, Political underground
