INSTANT NEWS SERVICE: Vol. 1, No. 14 (Saturday, June 7, 1969)

Berkeley, California: People's Press Syndicate, 1969. Single sheet measuring 7” x 8 ½” and printed on both sides in pink with the bold headline “SWINE”. The leaflet was critical of Berkeley police, referred to in the article below the headline as “swine” and “pigs” for how they handled dispersing a group that gathered for a torchlight parade from Sproul Plaza to the (People’s) Park: “They broke trees, destroyed plants, wrecked structures and threw our garden tools into the fire … many other park people were beaten and arrested.” A photograph of then California Governor Ronald Reagan is printed on the verso. The newsletter was published daily by the People's Press Syndicate, which reported on critical issues during the battle over People's Park, a derelict property on the University of California, Berkeley campus that was appropriated by the community and became the center of numerous clashes between political activists and the police.
