[San Francisco: New World Liberation Front], [ca. 1976]. A provocative broadside issued by the New World Liberation Front (NWLF), in which San Francisco Assistant District Attorney James Lassart is presented with the Adolf Eichmann Award “given to mad dogs who 'do their job' with a dedication, fervor and lack of conscience of such magnitude that they have been judged guilty of crimes against the people." Lassart’s skill set includes being a "prosecutor of the poor," "hatchetman for Joseph Freitas," "pawn of pig Jeremiah Taylor," "lackey of John Barbagelata, and a "servant of the rich and powerful." Both Freitas and Barbagelata survived assassination attempts by the NWLF.
Although unattributed, this broadside was published and distributed by the New World Liberation Front, an urban guerrilla organization who committed dozens of bombings and other crimes around the Bay Area during the 1970s. The NWLF was controversial even among the radical left for their dismissive and conspiratorial statements on feminism, homosexuality and Jews.
An 8 ½” x 11” sheet printed in black and red on white stock. A well-preserved copy of this provocative broadside from one of the more successful and notorious urban guerrilla groups to emerge from the turbulent 60s/70s. Two copies in OCLC at Yale and UC Berkeley. Item #07949
