The report includes a quote from Sean MacBride who open a seminar organized by the American Committee on Africa on multinational corporations in Namibia. The report says 1982 was the year that the South African regime decisively expanded the war it is already waging against the black majority at home by crossing international boundaries and attacking its neighbors. The South African army's invasion of Lesotho and murder of 30 South African refugees and 12 Lesotho citizens climaxed a year of attacks on neighboring black countries. South Africa occupied large parts of southern Angola throughout most of the year. South African soldiers were intercepted on a raid into Zimbabwe. A South African sponsored force has been wreaking havoc in parts of Mozambique, destroying crops and blowing up railroads and pipelines. The Reagan administration has refused to take any action against South Africa. Throughout 1982 ACOA has been a leader in the fight to reverse these disastrous Reagan policies. • Legislative Divestment Campaign • Namibia Conference • Student Actions • Southern Africa Sunday • Cultural and Sports Boycott of South Africa • Western Sahara • Information and Outreach • 1982 Financial Results
