The premier issue of at least 6 total, published weekly "as a map of self-defense in a terrain of increasing political repression." The Telegraph Avenue Liberation Front (T.A.L.F.) was an offshoot of the Berkeley Liberation Program, a 13-point program drawn up by various Bay Area radicals that set out to establish the foundations for a liberated people's government in Berkeley. This issue of the T.A.L.F. Manual provides tips for surviving police violence and power shutoffs, as well as tips for sabatoging police cars, a call for individuals to get involved in community actions, and a political cartoon entitled "Portrait of a Young Man as an Ass Kisser".
