Press release on the cancellation of a planned meeting of elected officials, community groups, church representatives and students who were invited to express their concern to KCET about its decision to cancel South Africa Now, an Emmy award winning show. The press release says the program brought objective news reports from anti-apartheid activists, trade unionists, religious leaders, and community organizations in South Africa. The press release says the show also regularly covers stories on the Frontline states, such as the cover-up of the April 1 massacre last year of returning Namibian freedom fighters and the ongoing destabilization of Angola and Mozambique by UNITA and MNR, backed by the U.S. and South Africa. The press release says the Friends of the ANC and Frontline States demands KCET keep South Africa Now on the air.
