Freedom at it's best.

After all the euphoria, disappointment, anger or shocked disbelief (delete as appropriate) following the "events" of 26th I haven't noticed any mention so far of the excellent demo special that Freedom distributed for the occasion. We hear a lot of talk about the need to get our ideas out to people beyond the anarchist milieu, Well here was a practical example of how it can be done. Good readable down to earth stuff with no mention of any dead Russians.
Me and Freedom go back a bit. At various times I have been a subscriber, occasional reader, lapsed reader, regular reader, I was even a street seller back in the day. My opinion of the paper has swung between thinking it wet and boring to being the best thing since sliced bread. The old rag has had it's ups and downs and no mistake, but it has kept the ideas alive through thick and thin. The anti-cuts protest special was Freedom at it's best.
