Yippie Festival - last veek in August in Chicago. Yippie I say it, sounds good, makes you want to yell and scream, makes you want to Luck! If you live in the Warren Forest, Lowei East Side or anyof the urban areas you know this shit already, but since the Yippie Festival is going to be made up mostly of suburban innocents they should have at least some idea as to what the upholders of justice are capable of. THERE IS NO LAW & ORDER IN AMERICA! ! Don't kid yourself & don't let your parents or other older people shit you, the pólice are your enemy! The articles you read in the underground papers are true! People really do get the shit beat out of them by the pólice. The pólice really did KILL 3 students in Orangeburg So.

Capable of anything and demanding everythingl Everything, freedom, pure unadulterated freedom, freedom of thought, word & action, rock' n1 roll, dope, & fucking in the streets, a convention and these things will be the platform. But, the old power culture, dying culture, will be ha ving its death convention, power convention. Legalized thugs will overflow the city, thugs with rifles & bayonets & helmets & uniforms, thugs thousands of thugs armed and capable of anything, we can look to Viet Nam & Detroit & Orangeburg and LA & see what they are capable of. The "public servants" are not the upholders of justice they are armed rr.admen willing to carry out the wishes & whims of other madmen who are to be having their death convention.
