The newsletter says Templeton Mzukisi Ntantala, Deputy Minister of the Pan African Congress of South Africa (PAC), spoke in Madison recently. A U.N. investigating committee has learned that Portuguese colonial troops, assisted by units from the neighboring Rhodesian regime, last year poisoned the water supplies of Mozambican villages in an area of Tete province where Frelimo is active. The newsletter reports that Luis Cabral, Chairman of the State Council of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, was elected vice chairman of the Organization of African Unity and President Mohammed Siad Barre of Somalia was elected President. Dockworkers in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Burnside, Louisiana are refusing to unload cargoes from Zimbabwe in line with U.N. economic sanctions, which the US does not support. The newsletter quotes Amilcar Cabral. The newsletter discusses General Antonio de Spinola and his book Portugal and the Future, Costa Gomes, Marcelo Caetano, Eddison Zvogbo, Albie Sachs, the World Food Program, International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union, South African Congress of Trade Unions, Southern Company, International Longshoremen's Association, Joshua Nkomo, Ian Smith, and the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU).
