Peoples Temple Collection; Box 17, Virtual item 19, Q599 Part 2- Jones meeting (12 April 1978)
April 12, 1978

This community meeting in Jonestown begins with Jones expressing his disappointment that people aren't paying attention to the news which he broadcasts.After unsuccessfully quizzing several people about what was going on in Nigeria that day, he says, "You'd think you were doing me a service this shit. I'm only trying to equip you for the day that I finally fall over with a stroke, and the movement has to continue without me." When he asks a more general question about who knows the news about Nigeria, he counts about 21 people with their hands in the air, but "some of 'em lying. I can tell the way you're holding your hand, you're lying."

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
