The leaflet discusses the gold mining industry,  U.S. investors, deaths per shift, the International Defense and Aid Fund for Southern Africa, the Poverty Datum Line, Bantustans, UNESCO, Steve Biko, white areas, John Vorster, family members of miners, the Witwatersrand Native Labor Association, the Native Recruiting Agency, the Sharpeville Massacre, U.S. bank loans, the UN General Assembly, the World Council of Church (WCC), the NAACP, the Harvard Corporation, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, taxes, U.S. corporations, the black workforce, "passbooks," and President Bok.
