The mailing includes a draft Mission Statement of the Seattle-Daliwe Sister Community Project, which has evolved in response to the immediate needs of Daliwe, a black township outside Cathcart, South Africa. Its main purpose is to apply moral and political pressure on the South African government and the local black authorities of Cartcart so that they will stop the forced removals of Daliwe residents. The project is described as a multiracial coalition of community members representing divest interests, organizations, peace and justice groups, and institutions in the Seattle community. The mailing reports that ties with the community of Daliwe have already been established and formalizing the structure of the Seattle coalition is underway. People are invited to comment on the mission statement and to attend a meeting at New Hope Baptist Church on May 19, 1990. Contact people are Mary Annese, Mike Mann, and Sharon Henderson.
