Cover story on guerrilla war in the US, with a map copied from Scanlan's showing bombings and other attacks. The editorial begins, "That there is a new wave of urban guerillas carrying out acts of ‘armed propaganda’ inside the confines of this imperialist, fascist, racist decadent community called the United States, cannot be disputed. Whether their ideologies or motivations differ, the techniques and the ultimate goal of destruction of the system is consistent. Guerrilla war is a radically different political reality from anything the United States has experienced. It would be incorrect for it to be misunderstood either by those who would wish to crush it and thereby attempt to curb the inevitable tide of revolution, or by those who would attempt reasonably to cope with it as a passing phase…” Rear cover is a full page Emory Douglas poster depicting a Black guerrilla shooting a policeman in the back.
