Hey everyone, if you're reading this blog post, you hopefully got a copy of the newest issue of the CitiZine!
Due to technical difficulties, we were only able to print a very small number of copies for today, but we should have a bunch more all over campus on Monday! For now, it would be great if you could pass along your copy to all your friends to read!
Our featured activist on the cover is Joan Baez [pictured above with Bob Dylan], a folk singer born in 1941 who began her political involvement in the sixties. In 1963, Baez, along with Dylan, performed at the March on Washington for civil rights. She has taken up causes including civil rights, peace in the Middle East, GLBTQ rights, and opposition to the death penalty. Baez was involved in the protests against the Vietnam and Iraq wars, and her husband David Harris spent many years of their marriage in jail for his opposition to the Vietnam War draft. Check out her singing at the Newport Folk Festival:
Ok, we also promised you some information on those posters from CrimethInc. If you are one of the first 20 people to either comment on this blog post or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will send you a free poster (make sure to include your name in the email so we can address an envelope to you through campus mail). We have a bunch of copies of the posters featured here, so check them out to see what you could get!
One last thing: if you want to catch up on the old CitiZine issues, check out the online versions!
So, look out for more copies of this issue on Monday, and get pumped about a full-length issue coming soon!!!
