Fund for Democratic Elections in South Africa
This fundraising brochure introduces the Fund for Democratic Elections in South Africa, which has been established by a group of concerned individuals in the United States who have a history of supporting anti-apartheid efforts in South Africa as a way to assist in the upcoming elections. This group has been established as a national "people-to-people" campaign to directly support political campaigns and electoral efforts in South Africa. The group will raise at least $1 million in campaign funds that will be sent to South Africa to help guarantee basic fairness in next April's elections. The brochure consists largely of a message by Nelson R. Mandela. The brochure discusses freedom, democracy, the National Party, free and fair elections, the democratic movement, ignorance, hunger, poverty, disease, peace, jobs, justice, propaganda efforts of the government, industry, big business, political campaigns, and previously disenfranchised South Africans.
