Leaflet advertising a film showing and speakers at Prairie Fire Book Center on July 18, 1975. The leaflet says in South Africa, Black people cannot legally strike, travel freely, or form political parties, and the strictest segregation is enforced. The leaflet says the U.S. does all it can to support the racist regime in South Africa; U.S. companies prop up the government in return for big tax breaks, super-low wages, and cheap raw materials. Recent victories over Portuguese colonialism in Mozambique and Angola have been an inspiration to South Africans fighting apartheid and U.S. imperialism. The leaflet says the same companies that prop up apartheid in South Africa promote racism in the U.S. For example, the Georgia Power Co. not only discriminates in its hiring and service policies in Atlanta, it also buys coal from South Africa.
