The mailing says the apartheid government and its allies in the national multi-party negotiations continue to resist the transition to democracy in South Africa. A coalition of right-wing groups, including bantustan chief Gatsha Buthelezi's Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) and the neo-fascist Conservative Party, walked out of the talks last week to press their demand for a balkanization of South Africa into ethnic enclaves. The mailing includes a contact list, Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) Affiliates and General Secretaries. It also includes fliers on two PBS television programs: (1) “Rights and Wrongs,” a hard-hitting weekly show on human rights abuses around the world produced by the same outstanding Globalvision Television team that created the anti-apartheid new program “South Africa Now,” and (2) “We Do The Work,” a rare chronicle of the lives and struggles of working people in the U.S. The mailing includes a newspaper article "S. African Rivals Agree to Curb Violence" by Paul Taylor. The mailing also discusses the African National Congress (ANC), F.W. de Klerk, Nelson Mandela, Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu, and President Clinton. [Note: the leaflet on “Rights and Wrongs” is apparently missing from this PDF.]
