Letter to subscribers sent with tape of the Rest of the News (ROTN) for the week of November 25. The program includes SUBJECT: US INVESTMENTS AND APARTHEID and Special Reports on COAL MINERS' STRIKE, PALESTINE UN VICTORY, ATTICA TRIALS, VIETNAMESE STUDENTS, LEAVENWORTH BROTHERS, and IWLU/PUERTO RICO. Included are interviews with Thami Mhlambiso, UN representative of the African National Congress (ANC), and David de Beer, a white South African "banned" by the South African government, in which he describes his personal experience of repression. Music on the program is Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika, the anthem of the ANC as well as of Tanzania and Zambia. The letter says that, on November 12, South Africa was suspended from the General Assembly of the United Nations because of its apartheid policy. Low wages that result from apartheid attract foreign investment, including $1.1 billion from the U.S. The U.S. also has increased military exchanges with South Africa.
