Leaflet advertising a picket on April 26th and every following Saturday at the Shell Service Station in Oakland. The leaflet says the AFL-CIO, United Mine Workers, and other organizations have endorsed the Shell boycott. The "apartheid" system in South Africa forces black workers to live and work under slave labor conditions. • APARTHEID AFFECTS AMERICANS • Multinational corporations invest in countries like South Africa instead of in American jobs • South Africa exports products to the United States • South Africa sells products to countries that normally buy from the U.S. • Profits made in South Africa can finance corporate attacks on American workers • Lower labor standards in countries like South Africa help to create a climate for employers to demand a lower standard of living for Americans as well • WHY BOYCOTT SHELL • FREE SOUTH AFRICA SAVE U.S. JOBS • PARTIAL LIST OF SHELL BOYCOTT ENDORSERS
