‘THE WEATHERMEN’ FBI WANTED POSTER (5)

Lot of five ‘WANTED BY THE FBI’ fingerprint cards for the members of the domestic terrorist ‘Weatherman’ (‘Weather Underground’) organization (WUO) including WILLIAM (BILL) AYERS, NAOMI JAFFE, RONALD (RON) FLIEGELMAN, MICHAEL JUSTESEN, and CELESTE MCCULLOUGH. WUO was a radical left militant organization active in the late 1960s and 1970s that was organized as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). WUO carried out a series of bombings, jailbreaks, and riots. Their positions were characterized by black power, opposition to the Vietnam War, and a desire to advance communist through violent revolution. Each card is printed with a facsimile signature of J. Edgar Hoover, 8 x 8 in. File holes. Very good.
