Language: English
The leaflet says in northern Mozambique thousands of people have been freed from Portuguese domination. The leaflet says the Portuguese have retreated; the people of Mozambique themselves control their land. The leaflet says the people are free to construct hospitals, build schools and sell their agricultural products to Tanzania; the Portuguese continue to be driven back; the struggle goes on. The leaflet says in the reconstruction of the liberated areas FRELIMO, the Mozambique Liberation Front, is desperate for materials that can help them equip their schools and hospitals; one item every village needs is a shortwave transistor radio. The leaflet says the Committee for a Free Mozambique supports FRELIMO, who provides the Mozambican people with needed materials; you can help; $40 buys a shortwave transistor radio; your donation of even one dollar can help in our campaign to buy radios for the free villages of Mozambique; any money collected in Project Transistors goes directly for the purchase of radios; send your dollars to the Committee for a Free Mozambique. The leaflet includes an excerpt of a poem by Jorge Rebelo.  [Note: In this leaflet Transistors is sometimes misspelled as Transitors.]
