Recommendations for Action Against Apartheid
Washington, DC, United States
March 23, 1965
Consultative Council on South Africa
Recommendations adopted by the National Conference on the South Africa Crisis and American Action held in Washington, D.C. Recommendations directed to the U.S. government include support for various economic sanctions against South Africa, reduction in diplomatic representation with South Africa, material aid to victims of oppression in South Africa and to South African refugees, and granting of asylum to political refugees from South Africa. U.S. corporate investors in South Africa are urged to seek to disengage, and Americans are urged not to buy South African products or travel to South Africa as tourists. Cultural and sports boycotts of South Africa are encouraged. Participants pledged to work as individuals and through the Consultative Council on Southern Africa to conduct educational campaigns and political efforts including non-violent direct action to achieve the recommendations.
