The brochure says 35 investors & 5 investments are all it takes to launch an economic offensive against the apartheid regime of South Africa. The brochure says divestment is easy; but where can we re-invest to keep money productive and, at the same time, deny economic support to the forces of oppression? The brochure says the purpose of The Steven Biko Fund is to channel capital into investments that are both economically and morally sound. The brochure says we seek to perfect a weapon of economic warfare that can be used against all societies that violate the fundamental rights of man as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The brochure says Steven Biko was a primary proponent of the Black Consciousness Movement in South Africa; he was an articulate advocate of political, economic, and psychological freedom for black South Africans.; he was murdered by South African "Security" Police in September, 1977. His ideas are alive and well. • 35 INVESTORS & 5 INVESTMENTS • WHO WAS STEVE BIKO? • HOW WILL THE FUND DEVELOP? • 1. ORGANIZATION • 2. INCORPORATION • 3.
