South Africa Trust Fund despite a request from President Reagan to eliminate this contribution. The newsletter says a decision is pending in the State and Commerce Departments on whether to rescind controls on non-military exports to the South African military and police. • Victories Won on Southern Africa in Foreign Aid Bill • Clark Amendment is Retained! • Funding for Trust Fund Reinstated • Congress Continues Funding for the Namibia Institute • Keep the Export Controls
