A call to urge Congress to oppose the Administration's policy in Angola and to expose its role in hampering the struggle for liberation in southern Africa. The Administration has admitted that the CIA is arming FNLA and UNITA to fight the MPLA and that its $42 million request for security assistance to Zaire in the military aid bill is related to the "instability" in Angola. • Amendments on Angola • UNITED STATES INTERVENTION IN ANGOLA CONTINUES • The civil war in Angola is daily growing fiercer, and the intervention of foreign powers - including the United States - is escalating. The turmoil goes on despite the events of November 11, which marked and the end of Portugal’s 500-year colonial presence. On Independence Day, the MPLA, which controls the capital, proclaimed a people's republic with its leader as president. This was countered by a rival declaration by the other two movements, FNLA and UNITA, which have formed an alliance against MPLA. • WHY U.S. INTERVENTION IN ANGOLA MUST BE STOPPED
