Boston Free Press, No. 5 (1968)

Boston: Boston Free Press, 1968. Newspaper. 12p., folded tabloid, illus., evenly toned, a bit of chipping where spine and quarterfold meet, else very good.

A short-lived underground paper especially concerned with resistance to the draft and the Vietnam War. While this issue is undated, internal evidence seems to indicate that it was published in summer 1968, notwithstanding a statement inside that a certain article was "reprinted from the Boston Free Press of Dec. 1969", which appears to be a satirical account of a projected future event. Much of the issue is devoted to the end of the trial of the Boston Five (Spock, Sloane Coffin, Ferber, Goodman, and Raskin) for conspiracy. Also: transcription of a May 23rd speech by Herbert Marcuse about the May revolt in France, and an interview with actress Sally Dennison about the Antonioni film "Zabriskie Point," then still in casting.
