Leaflet advertising a forum on divestment and apartheid on March 21 in Malcolm X Lounge (Hartley Hall). The leaflet describes the police massacre of 69 unarmed demonstrators for protesting the racist "pass laws" on March 21, 1960. On the anniversary of this massacre, there will be activities around the world to rededicate ourselves to the struggle against apartheid and racism. This struggle must not only demand that Columbia divest the $44 million it has invested in companies operating in South Africa, we must also break down barriers of segregation in our own backyard and join with those fighting against racism and for human rights in the Morningside-Harlem community. The leaflet also advertises a Rally for Divestment on March 22 on Low Steps and University Senate Hearings on Divestment on March 22 in Uris.
