This educational brochure discusses the importance of the progress that has been made to defeat Portuguese colonialism in Guinea-Bissau, where much of the country has been liberated and an April 1972 fact-finding mission by the United Nations recommended that the PAIGC should be recognized as the legitimate and sole representative of the people of Guinea-Bissau. The liberation of Guinea-Bissau is especially important because “the white powers of Africa see it as the first domino that must not be allowed to fall.” The brochure also that films and a benefit dance will be held in October.
