The resolution says realizing the U.S. Government Policy on Africa, as articulated by its Secretary of State during his speech in Lusaka, Zambia on Southern Africa, and his Speech of May 6, 1976 in Nairobi, Kenya East Africa, given before the Fourth Ministerial Meeting of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) is redundant at best and criminally-hypocritical in content; we demand the following redress of grievances. The resolution says the Patrice Lumumba Coalition, in cooperation with other Progressive Pan African Patriots, demands a hearing within three (3) weeks and one (1) day of this today’s date before the House Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. Government; at that hearing on September 16, 1976, along with testimonies, we intend to produce a comprehensive piece of Legislation on Africa that we will respectfully request the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce into the House. The resolution discusses SWAPO, the Sharpeville Massacre, the Soweto Massacre, peaceful protest, the illegal and racist regimes occupying the Sovereign African Territories of Namibia, Zimbabwe and Anzania (S.A.), white racism, the so-called "Constitutional Conferences" on Namibia, Dar Es Salaam Declaration,  the Frontline States, U.S. corporations, white-racist settlers, occupying land, Black Majority Rule in Zimbabwe, Henry Kissinger, an International Resources Bank, interest free loans to the Developing Nations of Africa, Namibia Day, the Non-Aligned Nation, P.A.C. (PAC, Pan Africanist Congress), the ANC (African National Congress), Mozambique, Tanzania, Angola, Zambia, Botswana, Azania, and St. Stephens Church.
