The mailing says your urgent action requested on U.S. Senate bill and House amendment.  The mailing says Senate Bill 2570 would ban all investments in South Africa, including all bank loans; compel the withdrawal of existing investment within 6 months; prohibit all trade with S. Africa, except for imports of certain strategic minerals designated by the President; ban the import of S. Africa gold coins and withdraw landing rights for S. African aircraft The mailing says because the bill defines "South Africa" as all areas under the legal or illegal control of the South African regime, including "homelands," it would thus prohibit the importation of Namibian resources unless the presidential exception is granted. The mailing asks people to call or wrote Senator Sparky Matsunaga, member of the Foreign Relations Committee, to urge his support for S. 2570. The mailing says House Amendment to section 107 of the Intelligence Act would prohibit U.S. assistance to the South African sponsored Unita terrorists waging war to overthrow the legitimate government of Angola. The mailing says the proposed Hamilton amendment would require any U.S. government support for military or paramilitary operations in Angola to be openly acknowledged and debated. The mailing asks people to call or write Rep. Daniel Akaka and Rep. Cec Heftel to voice your strong support for this amendment and your opposition to using U.S. tax money to aid Unita, the South African financed terrorists.
