Report by Carole Collins, Southern Africa International Affairs Representative, focusing on aspects of daily life in Luanda and its outskirts. Collins aims is to show how the political and war conditions in Angola interact and have affected the fabric of community life. The report says the U.S. government continues to support the South African-backed rebel group UNITA (National Union for Angola's Total Independence) politically and militarily (aid is officially at $15 million a year). The report discusses how the U.S. sees the role of the USSR and Cuba. The report discusses the Angolan Women's Organization (OMA) and the Southern Africa Development Coordination Conference (SADCC). • Luanda: Urban Realities • Daily Economic Survival • Mulenvos de Baixo: Rural traditions thrive within the Revolution
