A new pamphlet entitled The Flatbush Rebellion is currently being distributed in Flatbush following the events of the past two weeks.

You can download it from the image on the left or the link above.
The pamphlet opens with an a quote from Frederick Douglass, from a speech in 1857:
“If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle.”
