The Children of South Africa Need Freedom Not Bullets
Seattle, Washington, United States
June 16, 1990
Apparently a leaflet handed out at the Soweto Day march on June 16, 1990. The leaflet recalls the South African police and military opening fire on black school children nonviolently protesting apartheid education in this day in 1976. It also points out that, while Nelson Mandela has been released from prison, he is not yet free. The leaflet asks people to urge their Congressperson to support comprehensive mandatory sanctions against South Africa. It also asks people to get involved in a local anti-apartheid project: the Shell Boycott Campaign to pressure Shell to stop supplying the South African military and police and withdraw from the country, the Seattle-Daliwe Sister Community Project linking to a black township in danger of forced removal, and the campaign to stop sales of Boeing jets to South Africa.
