The leaflet says H. 1249 would stop Massachusetts state agencies from buying goods and services from companies doing business in South Africa; in 1990, Nelson Mandela visited Boston and urged support for sanctions; H. 1249 passed the Mass. House of Representatives in 1989. It needs your renewed support now in the House. The leaflet asks people to call, write postcards or send letters to Rep. Thomas Finneran, House Chair, Ways and Means; Rep. Charles Flaherty, Speaker of the House; and their representative. The leaflet discusses the African National Congress (ANC), pension fund investments from companies doing in South Africa, international economic pressure (sanctions), U.S. corporations, the United Democratic Front (UDF), COSATU, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, and apartheid. • Selective Purchase Bill, H. 1249: Questions and Answers
