The newsletter says the House of Representative recently passed two amendments to the State Department Authorization Bill HR1777 that will seriously jeopardize the U.S. anti-apartheid movement. The Swindall Amendment will restrict the travel of members of the African National Congress (ANC), the South West African Peoples' Organization (SWAPO), and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to 25 miles from New York, and the Burton Amendment calls on the State Department to withhold 25% of U.S. contributions to United Nations projects that primarily help the ANC or the PLO. Also, Sen. Dole introduced an amendment to the Omnibus Trade Bill, S1420, that calls for a trade embargo on Angola. The newsletter discusses Senators Pell, Simon, D'Amato, Burton, and Moynihan, and also Paula Bower, Sullivan Principles, the United Federation of Teachers (U.F.T.), Reverend Leon Sullivan, Chancellor Quinones, and the Board of Education.
