    Booklet on West German neo-Marxist militant group the Red Army Faction, also known as the Baader-Meinhof Group. The RAF staged a series of violent attacks in the 1970s. The booklet, published by a radical press in San Francisco in 1979, calls for global resistance to fascism and capital: “ We must broaden the fight world-wide, form revolutionary cells and build up the Red Army!”
