Slingshot is a quarterly, independent, radical newspaper published in the East Bay since 1988.
Last month we held a Graphics Extravaganza and, through a strange combination of party and assembly line, managed to organize a mountain of our graphics into a tidy filing system. We had categories which ranged from Police, Riots and Violence to Animal Liberation, Environment, and as the night progressed, Religion.
We’ve been talking about it for years, but we finally found ourselves a local union shop printer! We didn’t think one existed, but found Alternative Web Printing right in Oakland.
In other news, we’re hoping to release the 1999 Slingshot Organizer by mid-September. Don’t miss it! Your purchases keep Slingshot going, and keep you well informed and, hopefully, on-time to your appointments.
We actually managed to cut enough articles to get down to 16 pages this issue. We’ve got a mix of local and global issues covered which we hope will inspire all you readers to write us substantive letters so we can keep up the debate.
We’re always looking for writers, artists, photographers, editors, distributors and foundries to make the paper even better. Slingshot accepts unsolicited articles. Please send a disk if you can. We also accept letters, art and photographs. We do not print poetry.
As always, your generous donations are needed to keep us going. About $20 per person is great.
Editorial decisions about Slingshot are made by the Slingshot collective. Articles do not necessarily represent the opinions of everyone involved with Slingshot. We welcome debate, discussion and criticism.
