The newsletter includes a cover letter by Dumisani Kumalo in which he says at the beginning of the year he had modest expectations about legislation on public investment and South Africa but that this has been the most successful year for the introduction of divestment bills. The newsletter reports that Philadelphia adopted legislation that requires the city board of pensions to divest within two years holdings in any U.S. corporation doing business in South Africa or Namibia. The newsletter reports on divestment efforts in Connecticut, Minnesota, Kansas, Oregon, California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, and Wisconsin.
