Leaflet advertising a Shanty Alert at 2PM, Monday November 24, Bachman Lawn, University of Hawaii at Monoa. The leaflet says the Terrorist Attack On The Non-Violent Shanties incorporates the same brutal tactics as those used on the Black South Africans by the White Minority regime; this display of violent force is proof that racist violence is practiced here, and that we are not just fighting an abstract battle miles away; we are fighting against racist oppression here and around the world, including the oppression of the Black South Africans, the Native Americans, and the Hawaiian people; the burning of the Shanties concentrates the same mentality which lashes out against all oppressed people, especially those who are seen as a threat to their oppressors; the Shanties were a threat to all RACIST supporters of APARTHEID just as the Black South Africans are a threat to the APARTHEID Regime. • END RACISM FROM SOWETO TO SANDY BEACH [Note: The shanties were burned in the evening of November 23, 1986. See the Honolulu Advertiser November 24, 1986.]
