Augusta, GA: Last Harass, 1971. Unbound mimeographed newsprint tabloid. pp., illus. Horizontal fold crease; moderate toning; wear and some light cracking/chipping along folds. Good to very good.
The ninth issue of one of the more notable newspapers associated with the GI Underground Press movement, as produced by US Armed Forces members at Fort Gordon, Georgia. The paper's critical stance towards the Vietnam War, along with its espousal of GI rights, led to its first editor, Dennis Davis, being dishonorably discharged in 1969. This issue with several drug-related articles and sidebars, including an account of a US soldier in Vietnam who fought off the Viet Cong while high on marijuana, a piece suggesting that the US government may be complicit in promoting heroin as a way to suppress Black activism, and an opinion piece linking disillusionment to youth drug use. An uncommon publication in the trade; we find no issues currently on the market.
