This activist collective from New York's Lower East Side was a direct action group that inspired the Yippies and the Weather Underground. Their activities ranged from assassinating poet Kenneth Koch (with blanks) to cutting the fences at Woodstock so it became a free concert. This handbill prints a text decrying the excessive police presence in the East Village and also criticizes Bill Graham: "The TPF wants to control what Bill Graham wants to sell---we just want to dig it and liberate it so everyone can begin to live. Pigs, landlords, + internal hassles destroyed Henry St. Commune lesson in survival get your shit together." The verso advertises the Free Store at 89 E. 10th St., and the Acid Bail Fund. Some toning and light creasing, few closed tears, few small chips to edges, still thoroughly presentable overall. All items published by this group are rare. Bookseller Inventory #
