A CALL TO ACTION ON SOUTHERN AFRICA
by Friends of the ANC and the Frontline States
Los Angeles, California, United States
The mailing urges continued sanctions against South Africa, as called for by ANC (African National Congress) Deputy President Nelson Mandela. It also reports on the visit to Washington, D.C. by Jonas Savimbi, the leader of UNITA, which the U.S. and South African have backed for 15 years, seeing Angola in Cold War terms. People are asked to urge their Congresspersons to maintain sanctions against South Africa, recognize Angola, and stop all funding of UNITA. [The mailing includes two documents created by the Washington Office on Africa: "Action Alert: Stop U.S. Aid to Unita Now!" and "Pending Legislation," which are available separately on this website.]
