The leaflet advertises a demonstration on February 11 in Brooklyn and the Eastern Regional Conference of INCAR on February 10-12 at Long Island University. The leaflet says there is a growing mass movement against the apartheid government among nonwhite workers and students; rebellions and general strikes have erupted in response to high unemployment, low wages, racist education, and fascist police terror. The U.S. system of racism differs only in degree from South African apartheid. Police terror, segregation of schools and hospitals, and massive non-white unemployment are not strangers to the U.S. U.S. banks and corporations that invest in South Africa and profit off the exploitation of African workers also push racism and fascism here to divide and exploit workers. The International Committee Against Racism believes in following the lead of the black workers and students of South Africa. INCAR is building an anti-racist movement among black, Latin and white people. INCAR is calling for: 1) STOP the sale of the KRUGERRAND, the gold coin sold by South Africa in the U.S. 2) Demonstrate against U.S. companies that invest in S. Africa, including Chase, Manufacturers, Citibank, and Chemical Bank. 3) Boycott McGraw-Hill books, which prints millions of books that push racism in its South African branch. 4) Support the militant, multi-racial coal workers’ strike who are entering the tenth week of their strike. 5) Fight racism in the U.S. A strong antiracist movement can force the U.S. government to stop supporting the South African government.
