The San Francisco Diggers were a radical community activist group based in Haight-Ashbury from 1966-1968 who referred to themselves as “life actors.” They are best known for serving free food in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park, but they also produced a variety of print media, including newsletters, posters, and leaflets. Independent publishing was central to their mission to counter the political and cultural narratives of mainstream media, which they saw as corrupt and materialistic.
