The Storming Of The City-(Comic-Leaflet-UK-1999)

An amazing and funny parody about the events happened on 18th June 1999 during a protest against capitalism that turned into a riot in the heart of  London.
It was called Carnival Against The Capital and A spoof version of the Evening Standard, daily London-based newspaper was produced. 30,000 copies were printed and distributed on June 17 and 18 to City workers. The cover resembled the layout of the actual newspaper and the inner pages contained agitprop and humor. The newspaper was handed out for free. The headline read 'Global Market Meltdown', followed by a spoof report of the collapse of the world's financial markets.[2][3]

This small comic leaflet is only 4 A4 pages printed off-set in b/w.
Great drawings by Pete Loveday and a very funny text by Schnews.
Enjoy it.
