The mailing discusses the L.A. to Namibia 435 Committee’s sending observers to stand with the Namibian people from the pre-election campaigns of 1989, through the November elections, and finally to the independence celebrations. The mailing thanks people for their financial support and asks for donations to help repay debts incurred by the six observers. It says a 30-minute video, "One Step Closer to Freedom," documenting events is available.
