Leaflet advertising a demonstration on March 21 (the anniversary of the Sharpeville Massacre in South Africa) against U.S. government policy in Southern Africa and Central America/the Caribbean at Federal Building, 26 Federal Plaza in New York City. The leaflet demands: no aid to UNITA in Angola - no aid to the Contras in Nicaragua!; U.S. out of Central America/the Caribbean - end all military and economic aid to the Duarte regime in El Salvador!; U.S. Out of South Africa and Namibia - end constructive engagement with apartheid!; and boycott South Africa - not Nicaragua! The leaflet says in Angola, the U.S. openly backs Jonas Savimbi's UNITA, a terrorist force which operates alongside of the South African military in its campaign to de-stabilize Angola, and entrench its illegal occupation of neighboring Namibia. U.S. aid to UNITA will be coordinated with the South African military and will thereby enable the white minority regime to concentrate more resources against mounting protests at home.
