Leaflet advertising a demonstration in Newport Beach, California on April 16, 1977 and picketing on April 15 and April 17 against South African participation in the Davis Cup tennis tournament. The leaflet says the U.S. is one of the last remaining countries willing to play South Africa, endorsing the apartheid system. It discusses links to South Africa by U.S. corporations, NATO, the U.S. defense establishment, and the CIA. The leaflet says the main profiteers from South African segregation and oppression live in New York, Chicago and Orange County. • Why are South African sports segregated? • Why is the U.S. welcoming a team from South Africa? • Why demonstrate against a tennis match?
