Mailing about the South African government's crackdown on 17 anti-apartheid organizations and one labor federation. The mailing says this is the most serious crackdown on democratic opposition since the response to the Soweto uprisings in June 1976. The mailing says the comprehensive economic sanctions that are called for in HR1580/S556, the Dellums/Cranston sanctions bill, will cut off the oil, high technology, and foreign exchange on which the South African government depends. The mailing calls on people to: 1) Alert all the press in your area, 2) Organize "Fight the Crackdown" events, and 3) Mobilize support for strong sanctions. Mailing also includes “The Targets of Pretoria” that lists the organizations whose activities have been restricted.
