Leaflet asking people to protest Nixon's policy of increasing support for Portugal's colonial wars in Africa. The leaflet asks people to urge the President, Secretary of State William Rogers, and Congressional representatives not to sell U.S. planes to Portugal. It also suggests protesting at plants or offices of Boeing and raising support for the liberation movements in Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Cape Verde. Two newspaper articles are included: "Nixon Sells Lisbon 707s for Troops" and "U.S. Clears Sale of 707s To Portugal, 1st Such Transaction Since Embargo in '61."
