Revue dédiée à l’échapatoire comme idéal et ambition adressée aux fonctionnaires et bureaucrates de service, prisonniers, encadrés, surveillés et tous ceux pris en ces jougs des temps modernes. Ce exemplaire (no. 3) est consacré aux aspects pratiques derrière la fuite.

Dans la revue, on conseille de lire ce classique de Jean-Paul Sartre – L’existentialisme est un humanisme. Lisez-le! Inspirons-nous-en!
