Yippie! Communique -- 1968 [Handbill]
New York. No Date, circa early 1968. YIPPIE! Youth International Party Communiqué #1 with two Yippie badges, ‘Freak’ and ‘Narc’, as issued. VERY GOOD. Two horizontal mailing folds, old vertical centre crease, modest staining, small pin hole and minor impressions from the badges that were issued to accompany it.
“This Is Communique #1 From: The Yippie! Upperground To: Sisters and Brother Freaks Across Amerikkkka To Let You Know That All Of Us Are Very Alive And That More Of You/Us Are Getting Born Everyday... We Will Not Remain Deaf To The Righteous Rage Of The People!!!!”. The handbill’s text continues: “Meanwhile, Wear This Button. And If You See Someone Else Wearing It Get Together, Get Stoned, And Form Another Yippie! Tribe... Arm Yourself And Shoot To Live”. VERY RARE copy of the Yippies’ first communiqué, made that much more rare with both pinbacks.
