The brochure promotes a campaign to boycott Gulf Oil products because of its operations in Angola, pointing out that Gulf Oil’s $200 million of investment in Portuguese-occupied Africa is twice the amount of the other 29 U.S. companies combined. In 1972 alone, Gulf paid over $45 million to the Portuguese government. As Europe's poorest country, Portugal cannot finance its African wars alone. Africans who are fighting for their freedom and self-determination are being massacred, napalmed, machine-gunned, and imprisoned. Americans can hasten the end of this war by forcing Gulf to withdraw from Angola, ending its financial support for Portugal. • Portugal in Africa • United States Support of Portugal • Gulf Oil: Partner In Oppression • World Opinion • What Can I Do?
