The mailing says members of the sister community project in Seattle were able to speak by phone on March 12 with leaders of the Daliwe Resident's Committee in Cathcart, South Africa. A spokesperson for the Resident's Committee read a prepared statement explaining the South African government's methods of forcing residents of the Old Township, known as Daliwe, to relocate to a newly constructed township, Katikati. Kenneth Sigidi, President of the Resident's Committee, explained that supporters in Seattle could assist by "putting pressure on the South African government" to allow them to stay in their community. The mailing says the steering group will meet on March 22 at the SANE/FREEZE office. On March 29, the Seattle-Daliwe Sister Community Project will meet at New Hope Baptist Church and place a call to Daliwe Residents Committee so their representatives can speak with Seattle Mayor Norm Rice.
