The push for divestment grows on college campuses all over the U.S., showing that national coordination is needed. The newsletter reports South African troops have killed over 61 people in the past two days in Southern Angola. The newsletter includes a book review of A Woman Speaks by Anais Nin. The newsletter includes an advertisement by the UC Divestment Coalition about the showing of the film "Generations of Resistance." The newsletter discusses the Dine (Navajo) people, civil disobedience, Women Against Oppression, Assembly Speaker Willie Brown's divestment proposal, the UC Extension Center, UC (University of California), San Francisco motorcycle police, Occidental Petroleum, Coca-Cola Corporation, and demonstrators.
