The newsletter discusses the Kellogg boycott and asks people to write to the President of Kellogg Corporation. The newsletter reports that the Mozambique National Resistance (MNR), which is backed by South Africa, attacked the town of Homoine on July 18, 1987. In Namibia, which is illegally occupied by South Africa, 4,000 people were evicted from a housing compound, leaving them homeless. In October 1987, the Pretoria regime announced new regulations aimed at forcing universities to close down campus anti-apartheid organizations. The newsletter asks people to send letters of protest to F.W. de Klerk, Minister for National Education; Ambassador Piet Koornhof, South African Embassy; and Secretary of State George Shultz. On December 10, Human Rights Day, there will be a rally at Mobil headquarters to call on Mobil Oil and Royal Dutch/Shell to sever ties with South Africa. The Educators Against Apartheid filmstrip and cassette, narrated by Ruby Dee, will be shown at a forum sponsored by Women for Racial and Economic Equality. The newsletter discusses the African National Congress (ANC), Somofco (Solomon Mahlangu Freedom College) in Tanzania, the National Education Crisis Committee, the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, and Episcopal Churchpeople for a Free South Africa. Slogans on the newsletter include FREE NELSON MANDELA! and GRANT TENURE FOR DR. FRED DUBE.
