Contents: REAGAN VIOLATES 1986 ANTI-APARTHEID ACT, RESISTS NEW MEASURES • PRESS WHITEOUT IN SOUTH AFRICA • DIVESTMENT UPDATE • REPRESSION INTENSIFIES IN SOUTH AFRICA, DEATHS, DETENTION CONTINUE • RESOURCES ON SOUTHERN AFRICA • APARTHEID AND THE CANDIDATES '88: 4 QUESTIONS ON SOUTHERN AFRICA • The newsletter reports the Reagan administration has failed to enforce the provisions of the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act of 1986. This act requires that South Africa repeal the State of Emergency, create a non-racial democracy, release political prisoners, negotiate with Black groups on a new political system, and end raids into neighboring countries. Failure to meet these conditions should have triggered imposition of additional punitive measures by President Reagan. Since June 1985, 147 U.S. corporations have withdrawn from South Africa; however, only 20 of these have totally pulled out while another 32 companies have maintained some business affiliation with South Africa. The newsletter mentions the General Accounting Office (GAO), the South African Deputy Minister of Information, corporate withdrawal from Namibia, global comprehensive sanctions, South African sponsored rebels in Angola and Mozambique, UNITA, MNR, illegal occupation of Namibia, apartheid, U.S. proposals for internationally supervised elections leading to independence, self-determination, freedom, government violence, dissidents, students, lawyers, trade unionists, clergymen, WHUR (96.3 FM), Howard University, WPFW (88.3 FM), WAMU (88.5 FM), National Public Radio (NPR), Pacifica radio, WHMM (ch. 32), WETA (ch. 26), Namibia Information Service, mixed race, executions, the District of Columbia, divestment bills, a non-racial democracy, free speech, free political participation, photographing of security forces, soldiers, limitations on reporting, and anti-apartheid activists.
