The mailing to chapters of the National Lawyers Guild aims to increase Guild involvement and coordination in anti-apartheid work. This includes restructuring the Guild's Southern Africa network. The Guild national office promises to make available informational and legal resources (such as sample divestment legislation and briefs). The mailing includes a brief description of the Free South Africa Movement and of lawyers’ involvement in that movement. The mailing discusses "Lawyers Against Apartheid Day," local bar associations, the U.S. policy of "constructive engagement," South Africa's illegal occupation of Namibia, TransAfrica, Randall Robinson, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Walter Fauntleroy, the Reagan administration, the release of the detained labor leaders, political prisoners, Nelson Mandela, Barbara Dudley, NCBL (National Conference of Black Lawyers), the Lawyers’ Committee on Civil Rights under Law, Gay MacDougall, ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), demonstrations at South African consulates, and companies which either sell Krugerrands or do extensive business with South Africa.
