REVOLUTIONARY LETTERS NO. 29
beware of those
who say we are the beautiful losers
who stand in their long hair and wait to be punished
who weep on beaches for our isolation
we are not alone: we have brothers in all the hills
we have sisters in the jungles and in the ozarks
we even have brothers in the frozen tundra
they sit by their fires, they sing, they gather arms
they multiply: they will reclaim the earth
nowhere we can go but they are waiting for us
no exile where we will not hear welcome home
"goodmorning sister, let me work with you
goodmorning brother, let me
fight by your side"
Diane Di Prima
THE TIME IS NOW
The time is now,
You had better
and START the
Stop this thing called

building the devils
The time is now
Stand up and be the
true man you are
Pick up the gun and pow,
Blown away. Your the
beat by far.
Shoot your shot,
and shoot to kill.
Then drag him off
and have your fill.
the only good pig
is a dead pig.

In order to define phenomena it is necessary to have correct information. One way to do this is to read the Underground Press. We'd like to suggest some papers that we feel to be very important, and should be read by all. Of course one should read the papers from the immediate community first, and if there is none then one should be started, then papers from other parts of the country.
THE BLACK PANTHER PO Box 8641, Emeryville Branch, Oakland, California 94608
The Fifth Estate 1107 W. Warren, Detroit, Mich.
The Rat 201 E. Fourth Street, New York, N.Y.
The Berkeley Barb 2886 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley, California
EVO Box 571, Peter Stuyvesant Station, New York, N.Y.
We have to mention some very important free sheets that come out periodically:
PHAQUE Box 1952, Gary, Indiana
GUERRILLA 1107 W. Warren, Detroit, Mich.
SUN 1510 Hill, Ann Arbor, Mich.
(These brothers need financial support since their papers are distributed free)
Brother J.C. Crawford, the ROCK OF ZENTA has been fasting and meditating for more than.....a long time, watch for the ZENTA PAPERS to be published in the SUN. soon.
If it ain't dope, and you can't eat it, and you can't dance to it, and you can't fuck it--then piss on it!
