Jailbreak. High School Youth Against War and Fascism.


n.p. High School Youth Against War and Fascism, [1970]. Undated single-sheet newspaper published as broadside, 13.5x20 inches, folded into quarters; crudely reproduced black and white photos including an image of James McClain holding a gun to the head of judge Harold Haley (who was killed together with three escaping inmates in the 1970 San Rafael courtroom breakout attempt). Date penned at bottom of reverse in margin.

Main article, "Jonathan Jackson - Live like him!" is on the breakout attempt, and celebrates the death of judge Haley. "How many people did that pig send to rot in jail or die in the gas chamber? Tens? Hundreds? Thousands? And now the people got a chance to see one of these bastards for what he really was, without his armed goons to protect him - trembling, praying for his life in the hands of Black revolutionaries.For once the tables had been turned - the jailer was taken prisoner - the victims were judging the criminal and the verdict was guilty, the penalty, death..." Small photo of Angela Davis, also includes a statement of support from Huey Newton and a shorter piece on women's liberation.
