Leaflet about the National Weeks of Action (March 21-April 6, 1987), recommending a focus on U.S. policy toward southern Africa. Day-long educational programs are suggested about the need for comprehensive sanctions against South Africa and their relation to a progressive U.S. policy in the region. • POLITICAL FOCUSES FOR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND ONGOING WORK • #1 There is a need to enact a bill for comprehensive economic sanctions against South Africa-the equivalent of Dellums' bill which passed the House of Representatives last year. • #2 Ban all U.S. aid to UNITA, the contras of Angola • #3 Support U.S. aid to the Frontline States which have sustained serious damage from South African attacks • #4 Support the immediate independence of Namibia, and a U.S. policy which pressures South Africa to end its illegal occupation of that nation.
