Broadside relating the events of one of the stranger protests of the 1960s - the "Hate Parade." The flyer also promotes the group’s free clothes program and a "be-in" at the Bronx Botanical Gardens. This example also bears holograph notation in an unknown hand, with the New York P.O. Box for the Situationist International, and notes from a report on WBAI about soldiers in Vietnam.

New York Provo, founded by Dana Beal and Jonathan Leake, took inspiration from the Dutch Provo movement, staging Happenings and promoting anarchist theory much like their counterparts in the Netherlands - and serving as an antecedent to the Yippies. Leake would go on to form the Resurgence Youth Movement.

A rare and fragile flyer ("We need paper badly," the group proclaims at the bottom), with holograph reference to local and international activism.
