Abstract: SCREAM! is a tabloid newspaper which describes its purpose as being "to spread awareness among young people of their roles as 'bullshit detectors' in the struggling but imperfect, advance toward world-wide democracy and autonomy." SCREAM! offers itself"as a resource for all yong social activists who do not follow the false prophets of any political stripe and their 'Party Line.' "
Peace issues are a central concern of the paper. One recent article focussed on the autonomous peace movement in East Germany, which criticizes both major power blocs for their militaristic orientation. Another article examines the changing tactics of the peace movement in Western Europe.
SCREAM! also features articles on a range of other topics, raning from the role of high school principals to attempts by Native people to wrest autonomy away from governments.
