Join with the students from Berkeley, Columbia, Cornell, Princeton and Santa Cruz for National Student Anti-apartheid Protest Day!
by Princeton Coalition for Divestment
Princeton, New Jersey, United States
Undated, April 1985
The leaflet says students all across America are taking a stand against apartheid; ever increasing numbers of us are rising up to protest American institutions that help underwrite the apartheid system in South Africa; at Berkeley, Columbia, Cornell, Princeton, Rutgers and Santa Cruz, students have taken action; we demand that our Universities end their economic collaboration with the racist regime in Pretoria; we stand together in solidarity with the 23 million blacks in South Africa; we urge our fellow students to join us in awakening the moral conscience of the nation and the world; we are calling on students across the country to participate in a national day of protests for divestment this Wednesday, April 24; we call on groups to organize rallies and direct action blockades similar to ours. The leaflet includes the names and phone numbers of groups on a number of campuses including the Steven Biko Sit-In Committee at Berkeley (University of California), the Coalition for a Free South Africa at Columbia University, the Congress for Divestment at Cornell University, the Coalition for Divestment at Princeton University, the Coalition for Total Divestment at Rutgers University. The leaflet discusses Santa Cruz. In an article on April 25, 1985 in The Daily Princetonian reports the Princeton Coalition for Divestment helped organize and close to 100 students attended teach-in at Princeton on April 24.
