Here's an uncensored pdf of the (only) famous issue of The Insurgent. This was published as a reply to the muslim-bashing going on in the wake of the "offensive" drawings of Mohammed. In this issue, look for the most offensive pictures of Jesus you may ever see :)Also, see the back page for recipes on how to give yourself (or another) a home abortion with nothing more than tea!

Your Insurgent

,o +*

We notice prisoners have some of the weirdest addresses weVe ever seen. especially the numbers. A1ot of them are what you" expect like 854432or 54322,but there are a bunch with hyphens: 39384-066 or 8765 1-025 and smne make no sense: T9025 IID3- 140 o Wr 40058 HA61 9L What's up with that?

News Briefs:Your Insurgent is financially embarrassed!! This year for the first time, the student government office has made fund-raising a major part of the distributrion of student funds. The reason for this is a supposed lack of money for student activities. We are just one of many student groups that receive hnds from a money pool created by the incidental fees charge every student pays every quarter. At the moment, this is $191 up front. Next year it goes over $200. You pay whether you take 22 credits or 1. Your Insurgent has been taken unaware. We spend our time putting out a paper you want to-read.We are not money-grubbers. We run on a shoestring. Our main costs are printing, which is through the roof, and postage, which increased again in January. The ASUO, which decides who gets what, has a surplus this year of $144,000,but they say there is not enough money for student groups. SO, we ask YOU, our readers, to SEND US SOME MOMY.

Dear Young'uns,

Letters to t h e Editor+

(1 mean that with utmost respect)


Bein J .m old man whn lived through thc revolution. 1have enjoyed reading your paper, whore I have picked it up at Smith's Book Shop, Sundance, etc.. and 1like it very much. This should he mainstream media. and as author Alvin TofRer said in "Future Shock,""It should be the young , people making the decisions for the future,..or all will be lost." Although I was disappointed there were no editorid letters, I really enjoyed the article on crtpi. r ) ~ talisrn (and my 78-year-old mother did too) very g o d , concise. focused, good job. But that is not why r am writing you this better. Under "Newspininns" you pointed out 8 to 14 ,: crimes, lies and scandal of GW B w Jr, as I like to call him. , M y I add to the list? After Junior was illegally in power and became presiden~ a the first thing he did was attack reproductive rights of women hy cutting off parts of funding for ~tin Europe. " + The second thing he did was attack unions by striking down "ergonomics," that unions had fought so hard to get for the previous ten years. Ergonomics covers repetitive movement 1n.j~ries. which affect not just laborers but office personnef too. " . Third, he said we are no longer going by the initiative that former President Jimmy Carter put + , in place to eliminate nuclear proliferation (Salt IT talks) and said, "We are going to make more nuclear war heads and I sugpest you do the same." (Now he whines about countries that are taking him up on that.) '" Fot~rtf~, said we aren't going by that Kyoto agreement to reduce carbon emission anymore. he ', - That pissed o f f a lot of people including Germany and Japan (the Kyoto treaty was ratified by 140 nations, with some notahle exceptions-the United States and Australia did not s i g n the , meaty). He began to try to build 16 more coal burning plants up north (Michigan, I believe) but < the people up there said, "Hell no?" Five, he refused to lower arsenic levels in drinking water (Clinton left him that one). Six, he staned the drug wars hack up via Ashcmft by raiding medical marijuana p o w e r s in a state-sanctioned program and has refused to legalize and process hemp, a viabfe source ofprod; " UC~S from food to fabric to supplying oxygen (it doesn't even need bug spray or fertili7,er). Seven, he made it ilIegal to import drugs cheaper from Canada. Then lie privatizetl M
