Leaflet apparently distributed at an event protesting South African Krugerrand gold coins. The leaflet says an ad for Krugerrands ran during the evening news on WNAC (Channel 7) on September 25, 1977. A full-page print ad for the coins was published in the September 27 Boston Globe ("The world’s Best Way to Buy Pure Gold"). WBZ (Channel 4) and WCVB (Channel 5) are also running ads for the coin. The leaflet says these organizations are inadvertently supporting the South African government in its oppression of back people. by opposing these ads, we are talking a stand against the inhumane apartheid regime.
