Broadside for a planned disruptive action ("anti-property demonstration") at the Macy’s flagship store in New York City. Inspired by the looting that took place in the aftermath of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the Yippies initially planned the event as a "Loot-In," though by the time this flyer was produced that language seems to have been scrubbed. After being advised of the serious legal repercussions, the Yippies cancelled the event.

Superb and rare flyer for what would have been a truly disruptive event had it happened.
