This pamphlet includes a Declaration of Conscience signed by more than a hundred of the world's leading spokesmen for freedom from every continent. Franklin D. Roosevelt was Chairman of the International Committee. The pamphlet says the time has come for a world-wide protest against the racist policies of the Government of the Union of South Africa. This racist doctrine – apartheid – has denied the African, Asian and Coloured people in South Africa even the elementary rights granted by any democratic state. This Declaration is an appeal to the conscience of people everywhere to condemn apartheid and to demand that the Union of South Africa live up to its obligations under the United Nations Charter. • The Time Has Come for a World-Wide Protest • Signers of the Declaration of Conscience and Sponsors of the Day of Protest • Declaration of Conscience • How You Can Participate in the Freedom Campaign [Note: This pamphlet was printed on a single piece of paper and folded.
