The leaflet reports that the Apartheid Consumer Boycott Initiative has been certified to be placed on the November 1987 San Francisco city ballot. The leaflet says this proposition would make it official city policy to "call on everyone to avoid doing business with companies which profit from the exploitative economic conditions under South Africa's racist system known as 'Apartheid.'" The leaflet says the initiative's chief proponent is labor activist Robert McCall, executive board member of Local 2 (Hotel & Restaurant Workers). The leaflet includes the full text of the measure. The leaflet discusses Registrar of Voters Jay Patterson, the AFL-CIO, the NAACP, the boycott of Shell Oil, Willie Townsend, the Peace and Freedom Party, Proposition G (Prop. G), and Terence Hallinan. • Title: Apartheid Consumer Boycott • Summary: This Initiative Calls For a Voluntary Consumer Boycott of Companies Identified by the Board of Supervisors as Profiteering from South African Apartheid
