Leaflet advertising a memorial for Amilcar Cabral at the Methodist Center on February 3, 1973. The leaflet says Amilcar Cabral helped to found the African Independence Party for Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC) which has led the struggle for freedom in Guinea-Bissau from 500 years of Portuguese domination and oppression, and recently, U.S. imperialism. The leaflet says Westerners have used napalm, bombs, and jet planes against the liberation movements in Guinea, Angola and Mozambique, all colonies of fascist Portugal. The leaflet says one way to aid these struggles is with money and medical supplies to PAIGC in Guinea, FRELIMO in Mozambique and MPLA in Angola. The leaflet promotes speakers on African liberation and a tape of Gil Fernandez. The leaflet discusses NATO, Caetano, Norfolk State College, and Youth Against War and Fascism.
