The mailing says Nelson Mandela has just returned to South Africa from a tour of the U.S. during which he had hoped to call for the lifting of most remaining economic sanctions and fundraise for the ANC election campaign; but he went back home leaving sanctions in place, although he stressed the importance of future economic investment in South Africa. The mailing says news from South Africa continues to be grim, despite what should be the encouraging development of an agreement among most parties on the date for the first ever democratic elections April 27th, 1993. The mailing says our New York Coalition is planning a WALK FOR FREEDOM IN SOUTH AFRICA on Saturday, October 23. The mailing includes a newspaper article "Radical Groups in South Africa Pose Challenge for ANC Leaders" by John Battersby. The mailing discusses violence, right wing white forces, Gatsha Buth1ezi, Inkatha., the South African Council of Churches (SACC), future investment in South Africa, a draft Code of Conduct for Investment, anti-apartheid activists, state and local sanctions, profit, shareholders, the ANC (African National Congress), Cyril Ramaphosa, Thabo Mbeki, the ANC Youth League, Peter Mokaba, the National Union of Metalworkers, Tony Yengeni, Eugene Nyathi, Tom Lodge, Walter Sisulu, Oliver Tambo, Chris Hani, and the Center for African Studies.
