Editor: Robert Metz

Version: Two of at least two. NOTE: Freedom Flyer at this time was produced on a Canon photocopier that was capable of applying several colours (one colour per pass through the machine). During the run of printing for this large issue of Freedom Flyer, Freedom Party ran out of some colours, substituting others for other copies of the issue. Two versions of Issue #13 have been found and both are included in this online archive. They are referred to, arbitrarily, as “v.1” and “v.2”, but there was no difference in the content among copies of Issue #13…just colours.
