Leaflet issued as part of a campaign to boycott Shell. The leaflet says the next step in the movement to end the apartheid system in South Africa is to target corporations which play a key role in supporting that system. The leaflet says in response to requests from organizations of black South Africans, Royal Dutch/Shell (Shell Oil's parent company) has been targeted by major church, civil rights, labor, and citizens' groups around the world because pressure on bog corporations put pressure on apartheid, Royal Dutch/Shell plays a crucial role in South Africa, and Shell is the target of coordinated international action; the National Union of Mineworkers (the largest black union in South Africa) has asked for international pressure on Royal Dutch/Shell. The leaflet says groups that have targeted Shell include the Free South Africa Movement, World Council of Churches, AFL-CIO, United Mine Workers of America, NAACP, the National Organization for Women, and many more; all Shell products are boycott targets until Royal Dutch/Shell withdraws from South Africa.
