Contents: MOZAMBIQUE WAGES WAR AGAINST PORTUGAL • WHY? • THE TRUTH SPEAKS FOR ITSELF • WAR FOR DIGNITY • The pamphlet says that, in 1961-63, Portugal killed thousands of defenseless people in Angola, including women and children. The New York Times reported these events at that time as a victory gained by Portugal against "African terrorists." After unsuccessful peace negotiations, Angolans are now fighting a war against Portugal, as are people in so-called Portuguese Guinea and in Mozambique. The pamphlet mentions Portuguese colonies, the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO) headed by Dr. Eduardo C. Mondlane, oil imports to Rhodesia that go through Portuguese Mozambique via Beira, Drew Middleton, Lawrence Fellows, the Makonde tribe, Lord Kilbracker, exploitation, Mocimboa da Praia, guerrillas, the Chai Administrative Post, the Mueda-Nacata road, an anti-car mine, the NIMU region, nationalists, the road from SAGAL to NAMAUA, capitalism, communism, the United Nations’ Fourth Committee, the Salazar regime, democracy, freedom, and Western governments.
