Postcard size leaflet advertising a Labor Demonstration on Friday, March 18, 1988 in Chicago and a march to the new South African Consulate. The leaflet says speakers will include labor leaders; Danny K. Davis, City Council President Pro-Tem; and Reverend George Clements. The leaflet says Free South African trade union leaders, political prisoners and children. The leaflet says today, Moses Mayekiso, leader of the 150,000 member National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, is on trial for "treason" for the "crimes" of union organizing and opposing apartheid! Under What You Can Do the leaflet asks people to circulate petitions demanding the release of trade union leaders, participate in the March 18 demonstration, boycott Shell Oil Company, and write your U.S. Senators and Congresspersons to ask for Comprehensive Sanctions against South Africa. The leaflet says Bring Banners; and Wear Union Jackets & Buttons!
