Stop World War III!

"They are Ready to Shed the Blood of All of Us" [Broadside]. North Beach Communist Party. Stop World War III! San Francisco: North Beach Communist Party, [1946]. 11" x 8-1/2" mimeographed broadside. Moderate toning, negligible light foxing and browning to upper margin. $450. * Distributed as part of a letter-writing campaign reacting to Churchill's famous address "The Sinews of Peace," delivered in Fulton, Missouri on March 5, 1946. Also known as the "Iron Curtain" speech, it introduced the term "special relationship" to refer to the alliance between the U.K. and the U.S. and famously declared that "an iron curtain has descended across the Continent." Produced by a local Communist group, this broadside, decried the address as "the 'solution' of the Monopolists for the economic depression which they are now preparing at home" and an attempt "to prevent colonial peoples from getting their freedom" and "preserve the forces of fascism." It appears to be unrecorded. No copies located on OCLC.
