Release The Five: Statement of the Stoke Newington Five Solidarity Committee.

(London): Stoke Newington Five Solidarity Committee, 1973.  First edition.  8-page pamphlet campaigning for the release of the five (of 8) convicted for being part of the Angry Brigade, Britain’s first urban guerrilla group, who were responsible for a series of symbolic bomb attacks in England between 1970 and 1972. Using small bombs, they targeted banks, embassies, a BBC Outside Broadcast vehicle, and the homes of Conservative MPs.  A series of communiqués accompanied the actions, explaining the choice of targets and the Angry Brigade philosophy. In total, police attributed 25 bombings to the Angry Brigade.   The trial was one of the most sensational and longest in British history.  A very good copy.  Rare, Worldcat locates three copies two at the British Library and one at Cambridge.
