Inflamed by flare-ups against queers and PWAs?
"Maybe it's your governor.""Suffering from that painful feeling tha tcomes from being fucked over too many times?"A Governor like Pete Wilson can do that to you. His vetoing of domestic partnerships, neddle exchange, reclassification of marijuana for medicinal use and anti discrimination laws to protect queers is no secret. His support of reactionary measures like involuntary HIV testing and Proposition 187 is frightening.""The Republicans, in cooperation with fundamentalist Christian hat groups, are cooking up a right-wing agenda of intolerance they plan to push on California and, ultimately, the nation. Their mission is clear: to create an unbearable atmosphere of hatred and violence that forces Queers into the closet and PWAs into the grave. Republicans are counting on a political sweep on Election Day. We must stop them now! Our lives depend on it. It's time to ACT UP San Francisco!""Termination P Gubernatorial Ointment. Helps shrink swelling of homophobic asshols like Pete Wilson ... and gives prompt permanent relief from the painful burning and irritation of fascist AIDS policies associated with the Republican Party.""Take to the streets! Join ACT UP San Francisco. Call (415) 677-7988 or write to 2261 Market Street #115, San Francisco, CA 94114. ACT UP! Fight back! Fight AIDS!"
