CORPUS CHRISTI TIMES, Tues., Aug. 17, 1971 7-A Hoffman Says GO P is Target By.JEANNINE YEOMANS SAN FRANCISCO ( f f l ' . -.. Yippie leader Abbie Hoffman says he and other activists are making plans for protests in San Diego next summer at the Republican National Convention. Hoffman was at a news conference yesterday where three leaders of the May Day demonstrations i n Washington burned what they said were subpoenas ordering them to appear before a, federal grand jury in Detroit probing the bombing of the U.S. Capitol. The three said they would refuse to answer all questions. "We dug the Capitol bombing but we didn't do it," said Ken Kelley, 20, of Detroit. He said the three also refused to answer the same grand jury's questions last June. . Kelley was joined by Terry Taube, 18, also of Detroit, and Michael Tola, 21, Chapel Hill, .N,C. They accused the grand jury of being part of a federal government conspiracy to block antiwar protests. "Thousands of us will be in San Diego at the Republican National Convention," Tola said, reading from a joint statement. "Everywhere Dick Nixon appears on the campaign trail, he'll be faced with . thousands of angry young people. "Since Nixon has no interest in making peace, we will no longer allow his life to be peaceful." Hoffman said he and other activist leaders plan to be in the San Diego area later this week to begfn organizing protests there next August. He gave no details, but predicted the protests win be bigger than those that erupted in violence at Chicago at the t'me of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Hoffman, one of the Chicago Seven, was convicted with four others of crossing state 1'nes to encourage rioting at. Chicago. He is free on bond during appeal. $1.2 Million Awarded in Crash Suit MARTINEZ, Calif.
