The newsletter says MACSA has scheduled a memorial service on January 20 for Amilcar Cabral, Secretary General of PAIGC, who was assassinated in Conakry, Republic of Guinea. The Chicago Committee for the Liberation of Angola, Mozambique and Guinea (CCLAMG) is undertaking a campaign to collect Vitamin C to send to MPLA. The newsletter says last year’s lifting of sanctions on chrome imports from Rhodesia by the U.S. government was clearly supportive of the Smith government, helping them get much-needed foreign exchange. The newsletter includes information on President Sekou Toure, Isis Southall, Samuel J. Westin, Aldermen Eugene Parks, Joseph Thompson, the Southern Africa Committee, Foote Mineral, Union Carbide, Clark MacGregor, FRELIMO, ANC, SWAPO, ZAPU, ZANU, Gulf Oil Boycott, the Polaroid Revolutionary Workers Movement, the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO), International Defense and Aid Fund, World Council of Churches (Program to Combat Racism), and The Africa Fund.
