Leaflet about the Southern Africa Working Group with a reply slip. The leaflet says the Southern Africa Working Group is an association of over 160 concerned individuals who live in Northern California. We grew out of the southwest miss ions conference meeting at Asilomar, summer 1976. The leaflet says our concern is the struggle for liberation in South Africa; our aim is to form a united front or at least a solid informational network; our need is to work together for a clearer understanding of apartheid; how we inadvertently are connected to and support this evil. The leaflet says apartheid in South Africa, as maintained by the United States, is a crime against humanity, an affront to human dignity, a grave threat to international peace and security; through our ecumenical fellowship as American Christians, we can speak for the black people of South Africa; by learning and sharing the facts, we engender much more hope for their lives and the lives of their children. The leaflet says learn, for instance, how American bank loans give lifeblood to the apartheid economy and what you can do about it; how pressure of world opinion is needed to bring South Africa's government to the negotiating table and what steps to take. The leaflet says share your time and ideas with us once a month at meetings; share your money - cost of communication and action is considerable.
