New York: self-published, 1970. Mimeograph flyer. 8 ½ x 11 in. Very good condition, tape to top edge and red marker to top right corner. Item #5862
Flyer created by leftist organizers at CCNY for an event on March 12, 1970, the week after a group of activists took 6 rifles and 12,000 rounds of ammunition from the CCNY ROTC offices. The event includes prominent activists and political prisoners including Jerry Rubin, Dave Dellinger, Afeni Shakur, Jane Alpert, and Filipe Luciano. In addition to the speakers, the event also offered live music and a screening of incendiary newsreels. City College of New York was the site of important protests the year prior in reaction to discriminatory admissions practices and leadership, leading to open admissions. Flyer features a cartoon depicting two students gleefully stealing the weapons from the ROTC Armory.
