Leaflet against Gulf Oil Corporation's investment and exploitation of oil in Angola. The leaflet says people in Angola are fighting for independence against Portuguese colonial masters who are supported by NATO and by rental and royalty payments from Gulf Oil. Gulf Oil Corporation, the third largest oil corporation in the world, has invested $125 million in the Cabinda Enclave of Angola since 1966. In 1970, Cabinda Gulf (80% owned by Gulf USA) may produce 150,000 barrels per day, which would make Angola the fourth largest oil producer in Africa. Gulf can provide oil to the Republic of South Africa as well as to Portugal. [Note on date: The leaflet says the next Gulf annual stockholders meeting will be held Tuesday, April 28; April 28 was on Tuesday in 1970.]
