50:40 Open Road publication digitization with David Spaner and Alan Zisman
Infamous ‘Open Road’ publication from Vancouver that differentiated itself from the mainstream and “sectarian leftists organs” in that its reportage sought to convey “anti-authoritarian trends and developments wherever they may occur, and to push no organization other than those which are created and sustained by ordinary people in the heat of struggle.”  From Vancouver Anarchist Archive Online: “In 1975, Ken got the idea of publishing a high-quality anarchist tabloid, modelled in part on Akwasasne Notes and Rolling Stone, and David Spaner proposed the name “Open Road”. Yippie anarchists and some new people (also anarchists) got together to form the Open Road Collective. The first issue of Open Road was published in the spring of 1976. It is from this point that an overt and permanent anarchist tendency exists in Vancouver.”
