Leaflet advertising the West Coast two premiere showings of the movie “South Africa: The Rising Tide,” by Boubakar Adjali, at the Epic West theater in Berkeley, East Bay, on October 1 and at The Roxie theater in San Francisco, West Bay, on October 4. The film depicts South Africa today: uprisings in the black townships, the extensive military build-up, U.S. support of apartheid, and South African undermining of Zimbabwe and Namibian independence. The leaflet says the film “Namibia: A Study in Colonialism” will also be shown. There also will be posters from the American Committee on Africa (ACOA) 1977 Anti-Apartheid Poster Contest. There will be brief presentations by Prexy Nesbitt, National Coordinator for the Committee to Oppose Bank Loans to South Africa, Niva Padilha (American Friends Service Committee - AFSC) on Oct. 1 and Steve Talbot (lnternews) on Oct. 4, both recently returned from Southern Africa. The showings are a benefit for Stop Banking on Apartheid, a community coalition protesting Bank of America's direct support to South Africa, redlining, deficient affirmative action, and its use of public and private pension funds to support apartheid. The leaflet also mentions BA-NAG (Bay Area Namibia Action Group).
