The newsletter reports that the Windhoek Observer on 7 June reported on a Death Squad operating in Namibia organized by the South African government, under the code name of Koevoet, that is working its way down a death list of prominent citizens. At the head of the hit list is the Right Rev. Cleopas Dumeni, Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran OvamboKavango Church. The newsletter includes extracts of a paper prepared by the Research and Information Department of the International Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa in London for the meeting of the International Committee against Apartheid, Racism and Colonialism in Southern Africa held in Stockholm 11-13 April 1980; it discusses repressive laws, the Kassinga massacre, and more evidence of torture. An article about Namibian uranium covers United Nations hearings. Contents: Namibia • Save the Clark Amendment! • Escalation of Political Repression in Namibia • Chaplaincy to Namibians in Exile • Plunder of Namibian Uranium • Decree No. 1 for the Protection of the Natural Resources of Namibia • Plunder of Namibia's Natural Resources [Alternative spelling: Kleopas Dumeni]
