This statement by A. Philip Randolph is in his capacity as Chairman of the Committee of Conscience Against Apartheid, initiated by the American Committee on Africa and the University Christian Movement. The statement advocates withdrawal of accounts from Chase Manhattan Bank and First National City Bank because of their direct financial support to the apartheid South African government and economy. The campaign will culminate on Friday, December 9 (the day before Human Rights Day) with a demonstration at both banks.
