The mailing discusses Southern Africa Sunday, on the anniversary of the Sharpeville massacre, launched by the American Committee on Africa and the Black United Front. New York congregations will be asked to write letters of support to the South African Council of Churches, to the South African Government demanding the release of all political prisoners, and to the Reagan Administration to demand an end to all support for apartheid. The South African Council of Churches has been accused by a government commission of inquiry of "open, strong, and oft-repeated support for the armed liberation struggle," and four Lutheran pastors have been detained and tortured in the northern Transvaal. March 21st is also the first day of Two Weeks of Action on southern Africa, when actions will take place on campuses across the country, culminating on April 4, the day Martin Luther King was killed in 1968.
