Type: Leaflet
Coverage in Africa: South Africa

Language: English
The leaflet says bank loans to South Africa currently finance a racist police state; as U.S. citizens and bank customers, one of the best ways to protest these loans is to withdraw our accounts from these banks (Citibank, Chase Manhattan, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, Morgan Guaranty) and put our money, no matter how little, in banks that do not make such loans. The leaflet says the suggested form letter is to help you tell the bank why you are closing your account; send a copy to the main office and your local branch manager; ask your branch manager why your bank is involved with these loans, especially now that the political situation in South Africa is so explosive.
