Seattle, Washington, United States
Undated, sometime after October 24, 1988
The 10/20 educational meeting was used to show Mike’s 45-minute video on South African labor conditions. Geri announced that South African unions are bypassing the AFL-CIO and affiliating directly with U.S. unions. Mike has invited a member of the Committee to Free Moses Mayekiso to address our 10/28 meeting and suggests SLCAA pay $60 toward his air fare; Bill Clifford thought this was unnecessary and objected to spending $60 of our $61 treasury. Mike would like to move conference up to April 24 to encourage a large turnout of ATU meeting to approve donation to anti-apartheid struggle. Geri will inquire of the UMW about the availability of Nomonde Ngubo; SLCAA determined that ANC UN rep Solly Simelane is interested and also has other ANC (African National Congress) speaker. Mike says CFMM tour schedule is not firm yet, we shouldn’t count on them for 4/29/89. Mike will talk to Caryn before 11/11 about submitting a proposal to Langston Hughes Center. The minutes also mention ATU (Amalgamated Transit Union), May Day, speakers, Linda Anderson, South Africa: Challenge and Hope, and AFSC (American Friends Service Committee).
