Bust Us Out Of Our Pads? We're Back In The Streets. Street Meeting T'Nite 8PM St. Marx x 2nd Ave.

NY: UAW/MF; ESSO (1968). Mimeographed handbill protesting about how "Last Nite The Man Busted One of Our Crashpads". 28x21.5cm.


In Osha Thomas Neumann's memoir, "Up Against the Wall, Motherfucker" (2008), this handbill is transcribed on pages 71-72 amid context about UAW/MF activities and mimeograph handbill production: "The Motherfuckers have been called a 'street gang with analysis.' An anarchist affinity group that took a little magazine shop called Gem's Spa as its unofficial street headquarters, they set up crash pads that were raided constantly. In this case, 'With sorrow we had excluded our brothers the Runnaways + our beautiful drugs (the Man does not love them + has made laws against them). BUT - There is no pleasing the man. He busted anyway…". "Driven mad by the death of his politicians, seeing in our eyes the revelation of his own insanity, he wants us out of his cities before the summer starts. But listen man - We came out of your fat ass suburbs, We know what you short hairs are like, We've lived in your homes, We've had you for fathers and mothers, We're not going back. We need space. You push us out of your pads so you can bust us in the street. It won't work. We're here like roaches…".


Faint creases from having been previously folded into quarters; short closed edge tear at upper left corner; paper toned along lower edge.
