The mailing describes the purpose of the Africa Network as serving as a clearinghouse for information, resources, activities and projects on Africa, especially South/Southern Africa. Its goal is to help coordinate the activities and information of the growing number of organizations in the U.S. engaged in projects to end apartheid and colonialism in the region, especially issues that relate the struggles of people in Southern Africa to similar struggles for justice and equality in the U.S., including actions of the U.S. government and multi-national corporations. Among issues which Africa Network has initially agreed to take up are divestment of funds invested in South Africa, the cultural boycott, release of Nelson Mandela and South African political prisoners, uranium deliveries from South Africa to the U.S., nuclear technology/proliferation connection between South Africa and the U.S., apartheid Sport in the Olympic Games, national awareness about apartheid, and raising South Africa in the 1984 elections.
