A handbill for a Labor Action for Peace meeting to discuss automation and nuclear power

New York: Labor Action for Peace, [196-]. Labor Action for Peace was a small, seemingly short-lived group formed in NYC in 1962 "to rally working men and women to combine their economic and social aims with the aims and requirements of peace" (qtd. on p. 86 of Fred Rose's book, Coalitions Across the Class Divide, 2018). The handbill's text claims that automation and nuclear power used correctly can be a blessing, but misused will be a curse, and describes how war will impoverish the working class through inflation, taxation, and a lower standard of living. The bottom text advertises an open meeting held to discuss these issues on October 20, 196- at 17 West 100th St.

Offset printed in blue on pulp stock (9" x 6"). Browning to stock, a few tiny nicks to the edges, else fine. A fragile survivor. Item #11706
