This brochure promotes the Dollars for Democracy Campaign soliciting contributions for work in Namibia in the period leading up to the November 1, 1989 election, including medical supplies and care, building housing and resettlement facilities, providing child care and counseling, producing hundreds of thousands of pieces of voter education literature, maintaining and transporting volunteers throughout the country, and purchasing public address and audio-visual equipment and transportation vehicles. This will be Namibians’ first opportunity to vote after more than a century of colonialism. The brochure says that SWAPO must conduct a massive voter education campaign to educate the people about the registration and election process. The brochure mentions the UN Transitional Assistance Group (UNTAG), Jonas Savimbi and UNITA. The brochure says that Namibians are fighting against tremendous odds to achieve free and fair elections and that millions of dollars are pouring into Namibia from South Africa and beyond to sabotage elections and derail Independence. • History • Namibia • South African Occupation: Decades of Oppression • The Southwest Africa Peoples Organization • Independence Plan-U.N.
