"for a revolutionary labor movement" - Love & Rage flyer on the Detroit Newspaper strike

Detroit Love & Rage flyer on the Detroit Newspaper strike

This flyer was distributed at the 100,000 strong "Action!Motown" national mass march in Detroit called by the AFL-CIO at the end of the Newspaper Strike there in July 1997. The flyer was one of the few interventions by Love & Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation into strikes or the labor movement. It also caused controversy within Love & Rage, and was attempted censored by the NYC-based L&R newspaper editorial group who were rapidly moving away from anarchism and objected to the explicit revolutionary approach of the Detroit intervention.
