The pamphlet reports on Gulf Oil Company’s operations in Cabinda, Angola and the ways it bolsters the repressive colonial regime of Portugal, giving it the means to continue a war against the people of Angola. Cabinda is a major area of conflict between armed liberation forces and the Portuguese government. To put Gulf’s role in Angola into the perspective of corporate capitalism, the study also investigates Gulf's activities elsewhere in the world and in the U.S. Contents: Forward • Introduction: The Multinational Corporation • PART ONE • The Rape of Angola • Gulf in the Americas: Venezuela-50 Years of Waste, Big Stick in Bolivia, Canada on a Leash • Buena Vista? • PART TWO • Rigging the Machine • Oiling the Machine • Mellonoil • Foundation Facade • Meet the Management • Footnotes and Bibliography
