Mailing to Southern Africa Support and Human Rights groups. The mailing says over 30 people were killed over the weekend in South Africa as a result of political violence; ANC President Nelson Mandela, Inkatha leader Gathasha Buthelezi and minority President F.W. de Klerk all attended a church service to once again call for the violence to end. The mailing says the terror on the trains continues unabated as part of the deliberate policy to escalate the violence and generate chaos by utterly demoralizing township residents and their organization. The mailing includes PRESS SUMMARY ON WEEKLY REPRESSION REPORT FROM 08/04/92 to 14/04/92 and WEEKLY REPRESSION REPORT FOR WEEK No. 18 FROM 08/04/92 TO 14/04/92 by the Human Rights Commission. The mailing includes Mozambique End the Violence-Promote the Peace Questions and Answers by the Capital District Coalition Against Apartheid and Racism and the Mozambique Solidarity Office.
