PUBLICK

OCCURRENCES

Named after the first multi-page newspaper in the 13 colonies, Publick Occurrences Both Forreign and Domestick, this section of Rabble Rouser is a collection of cartoons, quips, and short articles. ‘Publick Occurrences’ was founded in Boston 1690 by rabble rouser Benjamin Harris.

 

At the time printing anything without permission from the government was illegal. All copies of Publick Occurrences, except for one, were destroyed. “Great inconveniences” were thought to arise from the liberty of printing news. Publick Occurrences published rabble rousing news of incest within the French royal family to allegations of mistreatment from the British military. 

 

May our version pay homage to Publick Occurrences and to the rabble rouser who spoke truth all those years ago, in Rabble Rouser’s hometown of Boston.
