Type: Leaflet
Coverage in Africa: South Africa, Southern Africa, Zimbabwe
Coverage outside Africa: United States
Language: English
Leaflet advertising a meeting in the Rufus Jones Room at AFSC, where a representative of the South West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO) will discuss the independence struggle in Namibia. Then, at 9:00, there will be a rally at the corner of 9th and Walnut Streets during the first debate between presidential candidates Ford and Carter. Both candidates support the interests of U.S. corporations in southern Africa. This means they both support the vicious, racist regimes of South Africa and Rhodesia whose oppression of black workers makes possible the sky-high profits of U.S. corporations, some of which have left Philadelphia in their search for higher profits, leaving behind a history of racist discrimination and growing unemployment for both black and white workers. Demands on the leaflet are END ALL U.S. INVESTMENTS IN SOUTH AFRICA, END ALL COVERT & OVERT MILITARY AID, and END RACIST ATTACKS FROM SOUTH AFRICA TO PHILA. [Note: This leaflet was very likely created by United People's Campaign Against Apartheid and Racism, which in a later document said it organized a demonstration at the debate.]
