Leaflet apparently used at an event of the Harpur Forum at Binghamton University. It says that IBM Workers United (IBMWU) is an organization of blue and white collar IBM workers who feel IBM is due for some changes. The leaflet says IBMWU passed out a leaflet at IBM's stockholder meeting in April saying that supporting IBM's business dealings in South Africa is no different than supporting business in Hitler's Nazi Germany, that the sale of IBM computers for use in the population registration system known as the "Book of Life" should be condemned, and that the continued presence of IBM computers in South African government agencies only serves to shore up and make more efficient a brutal repressive regime. • We say to you Chairman Cary - IBM OUT OF SOUTH AFRICA NOW! • FOR WORKPLACE AND ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY
