The mailing says Dear Brothers and Sisters: Collection of petitions is our first step to call more attention to the imprisonment and trials of South Africa's trade union leaders; I ask you to distribute and collect as many petitions (samples enclosed) as possible in your local unions by Monday, March 14; our second step will be a labor demonstration to turn in the petitions to the South African consulate and the U.S. State Department. The mailing says Kathy Devine and Harold Rogers are coordinating this campaign. The mailing says the members of USWA District 31 look forward to working with you to support our brothers and sisters who are in jail and being tried for ·treason by the South African apartheid government for the "crimes" of union organizing and opposing apartheid.
