Description

The Liberated Guardian formed out of a workers strike at The Guardian newspaper in New York City in the Spring of 1970. The Liberated Guardian was notable for it strong stand in favor of armed struggle. An ideological and political split within the ranks of the Liberated Guardian staff led to the newspaper’s demise in late-1973 and the creation of a new, short-lived newspaper called the New York City Star.

In this issue, articles focus on the killing of Clifford Glover; Black Liberation Army; African Liberation Day; daycare centers; school board politics; a union drive at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital; Carlos Feliciano trial; defeat of a local gay rights ordinance; Rockefeller drug laws; bike trails in NYC; Head Start; May Day; energy crisis; Chrysler and racism; Wounded Knee; behavior modification in prison; international political briefs; Middle East politics; Quaaludes; gay liberation; women’s liberation poetry; Watergate crossword puzzle; and music, book and film reviews.
