This leaflet, published in the lead-up to the Mobilization for Justice and Peace in Central America and Southern Africa in Washington, D.C. on April 26, 1987, points out similarities between U.S. policy in Central America and Southern Africa. In both regions, the U.S. support oppressive regimes, engages in covert and overt military operations rather than engaging in negotiations, and violates American democratic ideals.
