Description

This list of ten "demands" was created by anti-busing organization Restore Our Alienated Rights, or ROAR. Among other demands, they insist that Boston's representatives in the U.S. Congress address numerous perceived injustices at South Boston High School, which was placed under federal control via a receivership order by Judge Garrity, and that these same representatives "play a leadership role" in the passage of a constitutional amendment to ban forced busing.
