Mailing seeking contributions to The Africa Fund. The mailing says one man stands between Angola and peace - Jonas Savimbi of UNITA; he has refused to sign a UN mediated agreement to end the war and begin national reconciliation. The mailing says one thousand Angolans die every day because Savimbi won't make peace; women and children starve to death in besieged cities; diseases kill because there are no medicines available; people bleed to death from bullet wounds and shrapnel. The mailing says the U.S. bears a special responsibility for Savimbi's slaughter; UNITA got at least $45 million from the CIA during the Reagan and Bush years; the U.S. government blocked any effective international pressure on Savimbi. The mailing says the democratically elected Angolan government has already signed the peace accord; they are calling for new international sanctions against UNITA to stop Savimbi from wrecking the peace process. The mailing includes Angola Seeks Peace With UNITA Rebels by Jose Eduardo dos Santos. The mailing includes a postcard to President Bill Clinton. The mailing included a prepaid reply envelope (not included in this PDF). The mailing discusses Nelson Mandela, South Africa, the Clinton Administration, and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA).
