The newsletter mentions Paula Bower, James Campbell, Arthur Colen, Joseph Edelman, Pam McCarthy-Bamba, Rebekah Ritchey-Pagen, Carole Storch, Clarence Taylor, and Claudia Zaslavsky. The newsletter reports the Teachers' Retirement System has divested over $42 million from corporations doing business in South Africa. The newsletter says an E.A.A. member received a critical letter in his personnel file last year because he was teaching about apartheid. It reports that, in Pretoria, one woman and 31 men are awaiting execution, having been convicted on charges related to the vicious repression in the country. The newsletter includes material from an African National Congress (ANC) flier. The newsletter says E.A.A. members voted in September to support the struggle to get SUNY Stonybrook to grant tenure to Dr. Dube. Congress is considering legislation (the Swindall amendment to the State Department Authorization Bill, HR 1777) to prohibit travel of ANC (African National Congress) and SWAPO members outside New York City. The newsletter discusses the United Federation of Teachers (U.F.T.) and P.W. Botha.
