Coverage in Africa: Angola, South Africa
Language: English
The pamphlet says Angola, the sixth largest country in Africa, is 14 times the size of Portugal. Tiny, fascist Portugal’s continued control of Angola demands a troop commitment of over 80,000 men, weapons and training from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and extensive investment by the “free world” (especially the U.S. and South Africa). The pamphlet includes information and excerpts of a United Nations Special Committee study (1964-65) and from Annual Economic Review of Angola published by the Standard Bank Group. Agricultural products account for about 65% of Angola's exports in 1867; some two-thirds of its coffee was exported to the U.S. The pamphlet discusses Gulf Oil's operation in Cabinda, Companhia Mineira do Lobito, Krupp, Angola Diamond Company (DISMANG), Anglo-American Company, the Declaration on Granting of Independence, and self-determination.
