Slingshot is a quarterly, independent, radical newspaper published in the East Bay since 1988.
The tiny Slingshot collective, which publishes what you’re reading, decided to put out this “emergency issue” in response to the war fever and nationalism sweeping the land.
In the matter of one week we have written and compiled the articles contained within and worked diligently (some of us with very little sleep) to supply you with this paper which is essentially an anti-war cry.
The centerfold serves as a poster which you could hang up in response to all of the flags folks are waving. We need to be visible!
We’re always looking for writers, artists, photographers, editors, distributors and free-thinkers to make Slingshot better. If you somehow got the impression that we’re a stable, solid institution that doesn’t need help-you’re wrong. We are contsantly on the lookout for articles, atrwork and espically photos of demos and cool billboard corrections.
Editorial decisions about Slingshot are made by the Slingshot collective. Articles do not necessarily represent the opinions of everyone in Slingshot. We welcome debate, discussion, and criticism.
Also the 2002 Slingshot organizer is now available. This is quite possibly the best news in the paper! So order now so you can keep track of all those anti-war demonstrations! SEND $5 FOR ONE, $16 FOR FOUR, OR $30 FOR 8. All postage is included and if you send an extra $1 with your order and we’ll throw in a one year subscription to Slingshot! What a deal.
Volunteers interested in getting involved with Slingshot can hang out with us on December 16 at 4 p.m. at the Long Haul in Berkeley (see below).
