The newsletter says Gil Fernandes, a leader of PAIGC (Movement for the Liberation of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde) will give two lectures in Madison. The Boycott Committee reported that IGA, Millers, Coops, A & P, and Kohls food stories have been contacted so far about MACSA's symbolic boycott of Southern African goods. The newsletter says the Liberation Support Movement/Bay Area has for more than a year been working to meet a request by the MPLA for a printing press and a person to train MPLA cadres. It reports that the U.N. General Assembly's Fourth Committee (Political Committee) voted overwhelmingly to recognize the liberation movements of the Portuguese colonies in Africa as the authentic representatives of those people and called for the transfer of power to them. Two showings of Robert Van Lierop's film A Luta Continua were held in November, sponsored by MACSA and Community Action on Latin America. A group of Madison churches have formed committees on southern Africa. The newsletter includes information on the Afro-American Community Services Center, Ruth Minter, Meg Skinner, Steve Smith, Bill Minter, the Africa Research Group, and the North American Anti-Imperialist Coalition (NAAIC).
