Letter to the editor from Boston area clergy committed to a program of withdrawal of accounts from the First National Bank of Boston because of the banks loans to South Africa. The letter calls attention to the death of Stephen Biko, followed by a sham inquest, and the bannings of clergy and journalists who protested these events. Black and white South African religious leaders such as Rev. Beyers Naude, Rev. Thea Kotze, and Rev. Richard Brown have charged that U.S. bank loans serve to politically, financially, and militarily legitimize apartheid. The First National Bank of Boston has approximately $28 million in current loans to South Africa.
