An article from Banking Week reports on 14 anti-apartheid protesters outside Citicorp headquarters in New York who were arrested after obstructing bank entrances with wood and cardboard shanties. A more subdued demonstration also took place at the headquarters of J.P. Morgan & Co. before its annual meeting. An article in the Guardian reports on nationwide protests from March 21 to April 6 against U.S. corporations involved in South Africa and against racism in the U.S. The National Weeks of Anti-Apartheid Action were coordinated by the American Committee on Africa. Hamilton College students rallied outside a CitiBank branch in Syracuse on April 3, and a similar action occurred in Brooklyn the same day.
