The leaflet advertises a celebration of the independence of Guinea-Bissau, declared on September 24 by the National People's Assembly, after 12 years of fighting against Portuguese colonialism and U.S. imperialism. A detailed statement, "Independence in Guinea-Bissau," notes that the new Republic was immediately recognized by 20 nations and that it gives added impetus to the struggles of FRELIMO in Mozambique and of MPLA in Angola. Portugal, backed by U.S. military equipment and training, continues to occupy certain strategic areas. The leaflet urges people to write to the U.S. Mission to the U.N., the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and to President Nixon calling for recognition of Guinea-Bissau.
