Leaflet advertising a May 1, May Day, rally at the Federal Building and march to South African Airlines. The leaflet focuses on the SASO 9, the SWAPO 6 and the NUSAS 2. The leaflet says today in South Africa, Namibia (South West Africa), and Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) millions of Africans-young and old, men and women have been uprooted from their lands, herded into concentration camps, forced into low-paid, backbreaking work as virtual slaves in the gold and diamond mines. The leaflet says American-owned corporations, like General Motors (GM), Ford, Exxon, ITT, and First National City Bank rake in billions of dollars from the blood of the people in Southern Africa, and they want to keep it that way. The leaflet says the partial list of endorsers include the Pan African students Organization in the Americas (PASOA) ; the Pan African Congress (of Azania (PAC); the African National Council (Zimbabwe) ; SWAPO ; the SASO 9 Defense Committee; the Illinois Prisoners Organization; Ronald McCantz, Recording Secretary, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU); Fannie Hicks; the Center for United Labor Action (CULA); Roy Walker, The All African Peoples Revolutionary Party; the Institute of Positive Education; the Chicago Martial Arts Academy; the Hard Times Prison Project; and the All African Peoples Art and Cultural Center, Women United for Action.
