The leaflet says the "Electronic Battlefield" in Indochina is anchored by two computers in Thailand. South Africa has expanded its pass system for non-whites into a "Book of Life" system for all. Angola, Mozambique, and Guinea Bissau are presently fighting to remove Portugal, their colonial oppressor. GM has built large assembly plants in South Africa. It is no coincidence that these multinational corporations are both playing a supportive role in maintaining the oppressive regimes and economies of Southern Africa and giving vital support to the U.S. government's war on the Vietnamese people. The leaflet includes a list of NU (Northwestern University) stockholdings in war-related companies and companies doing business in Southern Africa. The leaflet discusses IBM; GM (General Motors); ITT; Gulf Oil Corp.; Chrysler; Conill Corp.; Chase Manhattan; Kodak; GE; Goodyear; Mobil; Motorola; Nalco Chemical; Polaroid; G.D. Searle; Singer; Standard Oil Indiana; Texaco; Westinghouse; Ashland Oil; and Weyerhaeuser. [Notes: This leaflet was apparently produced by the Southern Africa Liberation Information Group.]
