The newsletter reports on the increase in visits, tours, exchanges, and study mission between Southern Africa and the U.S. South African visits concentrate on the U.S., but often Britain, West Germany, Canada, France and other western countries are included. Missions & Movements will try to keep track of these visits and their purposes. Simultaneously, the Carter administration has refurbished the U.S.'s approach to the crisis in Southern Africa and South African Prime Minister Pieter W. Botha are attempting to shift gears, pretty up apartheid, and contain the thrust for freedom in in South Africa and the rest of the region. Botha aims for a 'constellation' of Southern Africa states all dominated by South Africa. The newsletter reports Dr. Jonas Savimbi, leader of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) is in the U.S. The newsletter discusses SADF (South African Defence Force); People’s Republic of Angola; SWAPO; the Rockefeller Foundation; the Ford Foundation; Franklin A. Thomas; Alan Pifer; the Carnegie Corporation; the Foreign Policy Study Foundation; the Aspen Institute; Henry Kissinger; the South African Police; bantustan chiefs; the CIA; Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) at Georgetown University; Social Democrats, USA; Bayard Rustin; and the People’s Liberation Army of Namibia. • SAVIMBI • ANOTHER STUDY!
