Pamphlet for use in the 1976 presidential campaign of Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford. The pamphlet says the accelerating struggle of an increasing militant African population against minority regimes has made southern Africa an important issue in this campaign. However, U.S. citizens have so far had little impact on what the candidates’ statements. The candidates have mostly responded to current news from Southern Africa, but neither have addressed the major political uprisings in South Africa or what they mean for U.S. policy. strong>Contents: Questions for the Candidates • Comparing the Candidates • General Policy • On Angola • On South Africa • On Rhodesia and Namibia • How to raise the Issues • Excerpts from the Party Platforms • Republican Party • Democratic Party
