Mailing about the Emergency Conference on Namibia held March, 13, 1981 that urges action on the upcoming United Nations Security Council consideration of a resolution to impose comprehensive sanctions against South Africa. The mailing includes Namibia, Southern African and U.S. Policy by the Continuing Committee of the Emergency Conference on Namibia that summarizes views presented at the Conference and demands that were adopted. The statement says South Africa has now rejected the United Nations plan for Namibian independence. This intransigence and Pretoria’s repeated aggression against neighboring States threaten the peace and stability of the whole of southern Africa. The Reagan Administration bears a significant responsibility for the dangerous situation in the region. There is a clear major shift of policy under the Reagan Administration, constituting an almost open policy of support for apartheid and for the continued illegal occupation of Namibia.
Used by permission of organizations that were part of the Continuing Committee of the Emergency Conference on Namibia including Africa Action (successor to the American Committee on Africa), former board members of Episcopal Churchpeople For A Free Southern Africa, and the Washington Office on Africa.
