Underground press

The term "underground press" is also used to refer to illegal publications under oppressive regimes, for example, the samizdat and bibuła in the Soviet Union and Poland respectively. Origins[edit] The underground press in the 1960s and 1970s existed in most countries with high GDP per capita and freedom of the press; similar publications existed in some developing countries and as part of the samizdat movement in the communist states, notably Czechoslovakia. Published as weeklies, monthlies, or "occasionals", and usually associated with left-wing politics, they evolved on the one hand into today's alternative weeklies and on the other into zines.
