Pamphleteering At #OccupySLC

I've written a bit about the People's Library at #OccupySLC's Base Camp. In addition to having an excellent selection of take-one-leave-one books on a variety of topics, the Library also has a big box of zines, also with a take-one-leave-one policy.

I've even been sort of "following" the Portland Gospel, a small #OccupyPortland zine that has, by some bizarre underground railroad of #Occupants, shown up weekly at #OSLC's Library.

I mentioned in my last post that a lot of the anti-fed stuff I had seen packing the literature table had been gloriously replaced by a fresh bloom of anarchist leaflets. I thought I would show a few of them here, along with one interesting publishing identifier - but we'll get to that.

First off, none of the following should be taken as representative of #Occupy, #OccupySLC, #OccupyWallStreet - hell, of anything, really, beyond an open forum where people can drop of leaflets that provides us with a brief snapshot of opinions that are being thrown this way or that.

Who, you may ask, are the merry pranksters who leafleted #OSLC's Base Camp with interesting reading material (and it IS interesting)?

It's a joint effort between the Louisville Anarchist Federation Federation and No Borders (Louisville's Radical Lending Library)!

This brings me back to the mysterious underground #Occupy railroad.

We now know that #OccupySLC must be a midway point and/or transfer station for the Portland - Louisville line.
