You Can't Stop Us Now

September 7, 1971
1971 HFP, Volume 3 Number 18

The Cambodian army began a series of attacks on the communist Khmer Rouge. Heavy rains flooded the Red River delta in Vietnam, killing 100,000 people. Three prisoners were shot and killed during an attempted escape from California's notorious San Quentin prison. Watergate "plumbers" broke into the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist, seeking information to discredit Ellsberg who had leaked the Pentagon Papers. Former Beatle John Lennon left England for New York City, never to return; he would be murdered in New York in 1980.

This third "theme issue" dealt with persecution of Christians in Iron Curtain countries, and included articles about Jesus People in Russia and Cuba, a column by Larry Norman on preparing for the End Times based on his song "Right Here in America" from his Street Level album, and original cartoons by Rob Bufton and Dale Yancy.

Heinz Kliem, pictured in the photo at right, was a young Christian who had escaped from East Germany. He shared his exciting 3 a.m. run for freedom through the subways of Berlin, where he amd his family narrowly avoided discovery and capture.

We ran a full page of photos of a Jesus concert at the Long Beach municipal auditorium, a baptism at Carter Lake in Colorado, a Solid Rock music festival in Kansas City, and a Jesus People gathering in Denver.

Dale Yancy's cartoon featured a Jesus Freak smuggling Bibles into Russia in his curly hair (excerpt shown at lower right.)
