This leaflet may have been passed out at a demonstration outside First National Bank. The leaflet says in 1976 U.S. banks had $2.2 billion in loans outstanding to South Africa, an amount roughly equivalent to the foreign exchange needed to cover South Africa's defense and oil import costs for that year. Contents: What is Happening Inside South Africa? • How Does First National Support Apartheid? • How Your Money Supports Racism • How First National's Lending Policies Affect Chicago • What You Can Do • Withdraw you personal/organizational account from First National • Protest First National Bank’s sale of the Krugerrands • Support Illinois House Bill 1258 • Sponsor an educational program on South Africa
