The mailing recalls the attacks in My Lai, Vietnam; Prasaut, Cambodia; Sharpeville, South Africa; Orangeburg, South Carolina; Kent State, Ohio. Recently, 600 unarmed peasants were killed by Portuguese troops in Muede, Mozambique. The mailing says you cannot separate these struggles; the same men who decide to invade Cambodia, or the Dominican Republic, take their stands with the racist and colonial regimes in Southern Africa. Gulf Oil helps pay for the Portuguese colonial army in Angola, and supplies fuel to the American war machine. American Motors' Jeep subsidiary, the world's largest producer of tactical military vehicles, sends its products to Portugal, South Africa, and Latin America. The Madison Area Committee on Southern Africa contributes financially to Southern African liberation movements. The mailing discusses President Nixon, the University of Wisconsin United Front, political prisoners, the Milwaukee 3, ROTC, taxes, and the Army Math Research Center.
