[Broadsheet]: The Peoples [sic] Army Jamboree vs The Amerikan Legion Konvention. Porkland Ore. USA Aug 30–Sep 2

[Portland], Oregon: The Peoples Army Jamboree, 1970.

Sold

Softcover. Broadsheet. Measuring 9" x 12". Single blue sheet mimeographed on both sides. Near fine with a touch of toning along the top edge and very light general wear. A flyer calling for a protest of an American Legion convention in Portland in which President Richard Nixon was to appear. Illustrations of longhaired hippies smoking dope, with one lobbing a Molotov cocktail, under a North Vietnamese flag on one side and Nixon, a policeman (depicted as a pig), and a clockwork soldier on the other. The claim that “50,000 stoned out turned on freaks” would attack the convention turned out not to be the case due to an ingenuous plan by Governor Tom McCall to have a free public concert to distract potential protesters, dubbed Vortex I: A Biodegradable Festival of Life. Only about a thousand turned up for the demonstration at the convention for which Nixon ultimately canceled his appearance. *OCLC* locates no copies. Rare.
