41.

Two mimeographed flyers, 'Provos of New York' and 'War or Revolution', issued by the Resurgence Youth Movement, New York, c. 1966.

Each 28x21.5cm. Both severely chipped and nibbled along the right-hand edges, probably from small rodent activity, with old central horizontal folds.


The first calls for "Anarchists, Goblins, Punks, Saints, Wild Men, Dope Freaks, Dropouts, Vagrants, Sorcerers" to unite "If You Want To Put Down This Kiss-Ass Society", signed the Provo/Resurgence Youth Movement "New York, Chicago, London, Earth" (a nod to the group's two closest affiliates, The Rebel Worker and Heatwave).


The second calls for "Guerillas, Migrants, Slaves, Dropouts, Anarchists, Provos, Proles" to unite, and demands that "Bourgeois elements must get out of the revolutionary movement. Pacifists, liberals, 'philosophical' radicals, are all the worst enemies of a true revolutionary movement. Let us not forget that it was the bourgeois intellectual Trotsky who murdered the workers, sailors and soldiers of Kronstadt…".


Poor condition, but rare.
