Amsterdam: Aktiegroep Nieuwmarkt, 1975. Nos. 1-4, 6-21. Foolscap format, nos. 1-3 crimp-bound at left margin, later issues either stapled once at upper left hand corner, or folded, unbound sheets. Text in Dutch.
A nearly complete run, lacking only the 5th number, of this impassioned underground periodical which bracketed the Nieuwmarkt Riots [Nieuwmarktrellen]. The riots protested the forced condemnation and eviction of buildings to construct the Eastern Metro, hence the striking drawing of a death's head train driving out of the cover of the first issue. On 24 March 1975, later known as Blue Monday, extensive riots broke out with police to protest the demolitions. While the demolitions continued, future plans for other metro lines were abandoned.
The pages of Nieuwmarkt Dagblad capture the blow by blow intensity of those days, with striking artwork, cartoons, and photographs of the riots.
Very good with scattered creasing and toning. Item #28680
