Memorandum sent out as a mailing. The memorandum says the Sanctions Alert notice on the reverse side of this memo came in today and I am sending it to you immediately so that you can telephone and telegram Senator's Sparky Matsunaga and Daniel Inouye to urge them to support S. 2570 when the motion is made to bring it for a floor vote this week. The memorandum says the measure was narrowly defeated in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by a 9 to 7 vote. Supporters of the bill will call for a vote of the entire Senate instead of allowing it to be bottled up in committee. The memorandum says your call to Senators Inouye and Matsunaga, NOW, is important because their votes are needed to bring it to the floor for a vote. The memorandum includes Sanctions Alert #2 Pressure For Strong Sanctions Needed In The Senate In Next Ten Days from Jennifer Davis of the American Committee on Africa. The mailing discusses investment in South Africa, bank loans, apartheid, mandatory comprehensive sanctions, U.S. imports of coal and uranium, Senator Daniel K. Inouye, and Senator Spark M. Matsunaga.
