A cover letter says the Seattle Shell Boycott Campaign is organizing a demonstration on December 9 at the Shell service station at NE 45th and 11th NE. Protests at Shell stations will be held across the U.S. as part of a Human Rights Week of Action Against Shell. Human rights violations in South Africa continue to escalate, and it is time to step up the pressure on Royal Dutch/Shell, a key multinational company that supplies fuel used by the South African police and military. The Seattle Shell Boycott Campaign also asks people to phone Shell on Monday, December 11 to tell them to withdraw from South Africa. The mailing includes a leaflet ANTI-APARTHEID DEMONSTRATION, which quotes James Motlatsi, President of the National Union of Mineworkers of South Africa.
