Welcome to our Spring 2015 issue, with the murderous U.S. war against Vietnam as its main theme. The essays and fiction describe the conflict itself, while next issue will feature accounts of the resistance from the anti-war movement, mutinous GIs, and the Vietnamese.
The Fall edition will mark our 50th anniversary of radical publishing and will include essays commemorating the paper’s history. Plans for a celebration, a staff reunion, and museum exhibits in Detroit are on the next and back pages.
Even if you can’t come to Detroit for the celebration, you will be able to read about the history of our long publishing venture in the Fall issue.
The Fifth Estate became an explicitly anarchist publication in 1975 after the other 500 underground papers of the 1960s had stopped publishing. We have persisted all these years only because of reader interest and engagement.
To assure we continue for the next 50 years, we need your support with subscriptions, distribution, and articles.
We accept no advertising and although we often receive generous donations, the basic financing for this magazine comes from our readers. If you’re not currently a subscriber, please consider becoming one.
You can read articles from previous issues and subscribe or donate by visiting our website at FifthEstate.org.
