The mailing says the Coalition to Stop Rhodesian and South African Imports has focused on stopping ships as they come into the Philadelphia port, involving steady work on the docks. Now the Coalition is extending its work to include more community education and action. Part of this effort is showing “Last Grave at Dimbaza," a documentary filmed underground in one of the "settlement camps" that have been built to house African workers and their families. Showings are scheduled for community centers in North Philly, West Philly, Germantown, Kensington, and Chinatown and on three campuses, besides the main showing at International House. Three-person brigades will be assigned for each neighborhood to work with the group sponsoring the film showing to publicize the event and build stronger relations with the group involved. The next meeting, at Houston Hall at University of Penn. on March 23, will discuss this work, problems about protesting the last ship, following up on the very exciting informal report from the Ethiopian Brother, and education about the present political situation in Southern Africa.
