Title: Serve the People: North Country Liberation ...
Publisher: n.p., n.d. [Hundred Flowers: Minneapolis-St. Paul: 1969-1970s?]
Publication Date: 1970
Large (16" x 11 1/2") 4-page newspaper-type publication on newsprint, a Special Supplement to Hundred Flowers. Hundred Flowers was the publication of leftist, activist, "hippie," and otherwise disaffected folks in the "flower child" and anti-Vietnam war period of the 1960s and 1970s. An editors' note explains: "Hundred Flowers has been asked by the Media Collective to publish this platform [of the North Country Liberation Front] so that the community might consider its political perspective and programmatic suggestions. We suggest that collectives and houses discuss this document as well as Tom Hayden's 'trial' issue of Ramparts. The events of recent months demonstrate the need for collective coordination and action. We must come together to resist the repression of our movement and at the same time, to initiate new programs and products to serve the people." The platform of the NCLF, centered in the Minnesota Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, outlines the goals of the anti-war, anti-corporate, anti-establishment members who wished to empower the people to matters into their own hands: to create a "revolutionary culture;" teach liberation in the schools; eliminate the University of Minnesota "unless it serves the people;" protect and expand the drug culture; "break the power of the landlords and provide beautiful housing for everyone;" combat the destruction of the "psychic and physical environment;" and a dozen other planks-for the benefit of the elderly, women, Black, Indian, Chicano, other third world persons, gays, farmers; confronting the "law and order" ethos; reforming taxes; opposing "Nixon's war" in Southeast Asia and the military draft; embracing the international struggle for socialism; proposing love, not war. The paper features a red-and-black illustration of a marijuana leaf on the front cover and an elaborate center-fold cartoon, also in red and black, on the topics of the platform, such as "UpAgainstTheWallStreet;" "Strike to abolish ROTC;" "Broker, can you share a dime?" [Occupy, anyone?] See photos; the cover is shown in two segments because it is too large for the scanner used, and the third photo is of the interior cartoon. Excellent condition. Because this item is oversize and made of paper, it will be mailed in a tube, which may require extra postage. Bookseller Inventory # 030814NC
