PROPOSAL ON SANCTIONS AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA
For Executive Board Meeting, September 11, 1961
New York, New York, United States
The proposal outlines manageable tasks that ACOA could undertake to lay groundwork for a campaign on sanctions against South Africa. These include preparing a pamphlet and a background memorandum to be distributed to labor, student groups, and liberal organizations; speaking tours advocating sanctions by people such as Michael Scott, Vus Make, Oliver Tambo, and South West African petitioners; a delegation to meet with Adlai Stevenson and G. Mennen Williams; and urging a speech advocating sanctions in Congress.
