Issue 8 of self-published journal of youth anarchist association the Resurgence Youth Movement, published in 1966.
Published from 1964–1967, Resurgence was the organ of the Resurgence Youth Movement (RYM), a youth-oriented anarchist group out of New York’s Lower East Side. RYM was founded by Jonathan Leake, then still a high school student, and Walter Caughey following lectures given by Sam Dolgoff, Russ Blackwell, and other anarchists at meetings of the Libertarian League in New York in the early 1960s. Blending radical surrealist influences with the international protest culture of the sixties, they called for “revolutionary youth everywhere...to join us. Let there be explosions of subversive activity, ambushes on the State and its lackeys. Enemies of the State Unite!”.
