The leaflet says the Research Group for the Liberation of Portuguese Africa, in support of the Polaroid Revolutionary Workers Movement (PRWM), is initiating a boycott in this area of all Polaroid products -- from sun glasses, to cameras, to film -- until Polaroid ends its sales in South Africa. The PRWM, a group of Black workers at the Polaroid plant in Massachusetts, was formed to protest sales and investments of Polaroid in South Africa; they demand that the products of their labor not serve the causes of oppression and racism in South Africa. The leaflet asks people to not to buy any Polaroid product and to send letters supporting the boycott to Edwin H. Land, president of Polaroid Corporation.
