U.S. groups represented in this meeting in Havana, Cuba organized by the UN Special Committee on the Policies of Apartheid of South Africa included the American Committee on Africa, American Friends Service Committee, Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility of the National Council of Churches, Liberation Support Movement, American Baptist Churches, National Conference of Black Churchmen, National Conference of Black Lawyers, National Anti-Imperialist Movement in Solidarity with African Liberation, and some more local groups. The Seminar noted with alarm the extent of Western nuclear collaboration with South Africa and especially the role of the Federal Republic of Germany, as well as General Electric’s proposed sale of two nuclear reactors to South Africa. Increased investment by private foreign firms in South Africa was given prominent attention, including Seagram’s plan to build a plant in the KwaZulu Bantustan. The report discusses the cultural boycott and the Olympics.
