INK Underground Newspaper No 8, 19 June 1971 THE UNENDING REBELLION 
`There is no sex in English comics of any sort, at all, ever. Maybe the comics of the 90's will carry it by then they will have to include the subject, for comics will be the staple reading of the huge mass of leisured (which is to say unemployed) illiterates.' 
PETER BUCKMAN REVIEWS ENGLISH COMICS Page 18 

BOLIVIA'S BALANCING ACT 
`Bolivia's military see-saw system of golpe (coup) and counter-golpe means that laws, decrees, signatures, arrests, pardons are all regularly reversed . There have been 188 regimes in under 150 years as a republic . . . ' 
STACY WADOT REPORTS FROM LA PAZ Page 15 

THE MONDAY CLUBMEN 
`This is the real core of the Monday Club: the pent-up frustration among a considerable section of old Empire-builders that Britain handed over power, sometimes to chaos, often to under-prepared people of colour, rather than fight it out like the Portuguese. ANDREW ROTH ON " SALISBURY'S SKINHEADS" Page 13 

NOTES FROM THE IVORY TOWER 
'Of course clever students go to Oxford and Cambridge. Whether they automatically become still cleverer as a result of living in miniature monasteries while their tutors "smoke at them across a gas fire for three years" is a matter for speculation.' SIMON SCHAMA EXCAVATES OXBRIDGE Page 5 

THE TRIALS OF OZ 

The OZ Obscenity Show comes to town next week. It was premiered in Sydney in 1964, where it ran to packed houses and shocked audiences with its devastating climax of six months hard labour for the defendants. The scene opposite was condemned on the grounds that it 'encouraged public urination'. Next week the show is to be revived at the Old Bailey, where the action still centres around the theme of obscenity but updated with the additional charge of 'conspiring to debauch and corrupt the morals of schoolchildren'. One of the original hit cast, Richard Neville, presents extracts from the Sydney script, page 6. 

It was Richard Neville's view that the existing underground press of the time were no longer catering the need for an alternative attitude. INK launched as a weekly publication in May 71 and changed to a fortnightly in August. Ink was driven by Richard Neville, Andrew Fisher, Ed Victor and Felix Dennis but due to it's close association with Oz magazine and the Oz trials it folded in February 72 - All issues were originally folded, but this has been kept flat for many years.
