The word "Symbionese" is thought to be derived from symbiosis, a term used in biology to denote mutually beneficial interaction between different species; apparently the founders of the SLA had different human races in mind when coining the term.
The SLA claimed to be holding Hearst according to the conditions of the Geneva convention.

The Symbionese Federation is not a government, but rather it is a united and federated formation of members of different races and people and political parties who have agreed to struggle in a united front for the independence and self determination of each of their races and people and The Liquidation of the Common Enemy.
The Symbionese Federation is not a party, but rather it is a Federation, for its members are made up of members of all political parties and organizations and races of all the most oppressed people of this fascist nation, thereby forming unity and the full representation of the interests of all the people.
The name Symbionese is taken from the word symbiosis and we define its meaning as a body of dissimilar bodies and organisms living in deep and loving harmony and partnership in the best interest of all within the body.

The talismanic importance of this screed to the SLA leadership is shown by the fact that the "Court of the People" adjudged its failure to be printed at once in Hearst newspapers and other media to be proof of malicious bad faith on the part of the "Hearst Empire" and "fascist AmeriKKKa" generally.
The emblem of the Symbionese Liberation Army is 170,000 years old, and it is one of the first symbols used by people to signify God and life.
The Symbionese Liberation Army has selected the Seven Headed Cobra as our emblem because we realize that an army is a mass that needs unity in order to become a fighting force, and we know that true unity among people must be based upon a concern that is universal.

 Political Prisoners
Thus, when the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped Patrician Hearst in 1974, many people opined that since the SLA members were supporting a worthy cause ("helping the poor"), they should not have been held accountable to their crimes of murder, bank robbery, and kidnapping.
At worst, many argued, the punishment handed out to those in the SLA and like organizations should have been less severe than retribution given to common criminals who commit their transgressions out of simple greed or anger.
Indeed, the recent arrest of Kathleen Soliah, an SLA member who had escaped justice for 25 years, has triggered a new wave of protest, as her supporters hold that she has a "passion for justice" (read that, a left-wing view of the world) and is above prosecution.

After an unhappy childhood in Seattle—his father was sporadically employed, and his mother, an alcoholic, died when he was fifteen—he performed a brief stint in the army as a paratrooper before criss-crossing the country as a back-up and session guitarist.
But her appearance on security-camera footage holding a rifle with other SLA members during a bank heist on April 15, and her taped admission nine days later that she had participated willingly, converted her from kidnap victim to FBI-wanted fugitive.
After her conviction, the SLA effectively ceased to exist, as all of its known members were either in prison or dead.

Under the SLA's doctrine of guilt, every employee of every government agency, local or federal, civilian or military, could be held responsible for the crimes already committed in Vietnam, Chile, etc., and, under the SLA's standard for matching punishments with crimes, put to death.
The blanket of fear that has spread in the wake of the SLA actions is all the more problematical, because it has no focus either in its source or aim (a consequence of the fact that the SLA has shown itself to be grounded in no constituency or framework of moral right).
The SLA' s emergence is directly attributable to the collapse of the organized Left at the end of the Sixties, and its continuing failure to regroup itself and revive.
