The newsletter includes an excerpt from a speech given by Martin Luther King, Jr. at Hunter College, New York City, on Human Rights Day, December 10, 1965. The newsletter includes a report on Brooklyn, a vast resettlement area on the slopes of the Lebombo mountains in the far eastern Transvaal, home of about 5,000 people evicted from surrounding 'white' SA in the 1960's and 1970's. The newsletter includes a petition to the New York City Council to pass Intro 1137 that bars the city from contracting with companies that continue to operate in South Africa and Namibia. It also advertises a forum at which a representative of SWAPO (South West African People's Organization) will discuss the agreement negotiated by the United Nations to lead to independence of Namibia.
