The Gulf Boycott Coalition (GBC), formed on July 4, 1971 in Dayton, Ohio, has organized support for a boycott of Gulf Oil Corporation in over 40 U.S. cities. President Nixon has embraced minority white regimes, Britain and the U.S. have encouraged Rhodesian white rule, U.S. foreign aid supports the Portuguese economy allowing them to fight an expensive war, and the United Nations can do little more than issue pronouncements. Five years after the Angolan revolution began, Gulf started a $150 million oil operation there--75% of total US investments in Angola. Gulf paid Portugal $61 million in 1972 and will pay $10 million more each year, which enables Portugal to finance 150,000 troops fighting to maintain its colonies. • What is GBC • Why Gulf? • Ethical Reasons • Political Reasons • Educational Reasons • Practical Reasons • Executive Committee • Advisory Board [Note: This brochure was printed back to back and folded in thirds.]
