The mailing says the National Lawyers Guild Southern Africa Project is developing a handbook about successful and unsuccessful tactics that have been used in Southern African support work as well as legal problems that groups have experienced. Two enclosed leaflets (THE SOUTHERN AFRICA PROJECT NEEDS YOUR HELP and WHY A SOUTHERN AFRICA PROJECT?) explain the Project and request information about campus activities and divestment efforts relevant to the handbook. The mailing discusses Blacks in South Africa and Namibia, white supremacy, apartheid, illegal occupation, SWAPO, the Patriotic Front, military build-ups, repressive internal security measures, bannings, arrests, torture, murder of political activists, the bank campaign, national liberation forces, the Krugerrand, sports boycotts, local and state resolutions and legislation, material aid drives, the arms embargo, mercenaries, and a fund-railing raffle.
