The press release says two women exiled for their leadership of the movement for justice and democracy in Southern Africa are touring the U.S. to raise awareness and create support for the struggle against apartheid in South Africa and repression in Namibia. Mojaki Thulo is a student from South Africa who has been active in the African National Congress. Loide Shinavene represents the women's section of the South African People's Organization (SWAPO) which is fighting for the independence of Namibia. The press release says at this event the Delaware Committee for a Free South Africa will begin a "Campaign to Free the Children of Apartheid" in commemoration of Soweto Day. The Southern African women's visit is sponsored by Women for Racial and Economic Equality, the Delaware Committee for a Free South Africa of Pacem in Terris, and the Harriet Tubman Historical Society.
