This mailing includes a cover memo says a resolution had been development by the Madison Area Committee on Southern Africa and is now before the Madison Common Council. It will not pass without wider support than MACSA members. Also included in the mailing is a Dear colleague letter regarding a resolution "to Implement Council Resolution 29/355 of June 29, 1976." The Dear colleague letter says while the resolution has the support of several alderpersons and a number of clergy and members of religious organizations it is not likely to pass without the support of persons like yourself whose opinions and judgments are highly regarded. The Dear colleague asks people to sign the petition, telephone your alderperson and the mayor to indicate your support of the resolution, obtains signatures from any of your colleagues, return the petition by November 15. The mailing also includes a petition. The petition calls on alderpersons and the mayor to vote affirmatively for "A Bill to Implement Madison Common Council Resolution 29/355 of June 29, 1976." The petition says signers believe that this measure expresses our continuing and growing abhorrence of the treatment of African people in South Africa and for the participation of American corporations in this exploitation of apartheid.
