Undated, 1977 or earlier?
The statement of purpose of the Chicago Chapter of the National Anti-Imperialist Movement in Solidarity with African Liberation (NAIMSAL) says people of Africa have a right to freedom and progress, to develop their rich culture and resources for their own use, and to revive centuries of history smothered by lies. The statement discusses Angola, Portuguese colonialism, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and South Africa. NAIMSAL's purposes include: to support the struggles in Southern Africa against the minority racist regimes on South Africa and Rhodesia (Zimbabwe); to concretely oppose continued investments and donations of the U.S. government and private institutions in South Africa and Rhodesia; to inform all people about and actively carry out the United Nations resolutions declaring colonialism, racism and genocide as violations of international law; to drastically cut the U.S. military budget; and to fight for full employment in the U.S.
