Episcopal Churchpeople For A Free Southern Africa
The newsletter reports that the South African Defence Force (SADF)declared yesterday that it had completed its withdrawal from Angola. The newsletter discusses the U.S.-designed G5 cannon, UNITA and Cuito Cuanavale and says apartheid’s war machine has suffered a defeat at the hands of the Angolan-Cuban-SWAPO allied army. The newsletter says the U.S. wants Cuba out of Angola before the United Nations independence-for-Namibia process begins while the U.S. government reinforces UNITA in Angola from Zaire. The newsletter reports on the bombing in Johannesburg of the anti-apartheid South African Council of Churches. The newsletter discusses UNTAG (United Nations Transition Assistance Group). The newsletter reports Bishop James Kauluma, leader of the Anglican church in Namibia, was hit by rubber bullets as the South African Police arrested 40 students at the Shifidi High School in Katutura, the back township outside Windhoek. The newsletter includes information on the Council of Churches in Namibia (CNN). The newsletter includes information on the National People's Assembly of representatives of parents, workers, and students that met at the invitation of the Namibia Nation Students' Organization (NANSO) that agreed to set up an ad hoc National Schools Crisis Committee. The newsletter includes newspaper articles.
