Brooklyn, New York, United States
Undated, late 1970s?
The leaflet describes the South African system of apartheid, including the Bantustans, and identifies the racist police state as having historical ties to Nazi fascists. The leaflet describes rebelling, boycotting, and demonstrating by anti-apartheid students and workers and the repression against them. All black people must carry I.D. cards, as Jews did in Germany. Black workers have no trade union rights. The Rockefeller bank network and other U.S. companies profits from apartheid by exploiting cheap labor there. The leaflet says 353 U.S. companies have subsidiaries or affiliates there, with combined direct investment of close to $1.6 billion and returns on investment of more than 19% a year, after taxes. Also, the leaflet says that U.S. police and military work for apartheid; South African secret agents of BOSS are being trained in the U.S. and W. Germany, and the U.S. supplied weapons grade uranium to South Africa. The leaflet describes the context of U.S. police as the rivalry between imperialists leading to world war. The leaflet says President Carter’s saying he supports black majority rule in Africa means that he supports black people who will play ball with the U.S. The leaflet says not to be tricked by liberals. Only a multiracial, rank-and-file movement of workers and students can stop apartheid and impending war. The leaflet mentions Andrew Young and a United Nations economic boycott. Slogans on the leaflet: END U.S. PROFITS FROM SOUTHERN AFRICA APARTHEID AND U.S. RACISM • END U.S. MILITARY AND POLICE AID TO APARTHEID • SMASH APARTHEID IN SOUTHERN AFRICA & RACISM IN THE U.S.
