Cover letter for the May 1971 issue of CFM News and Notes, posted separately on this website. CFM members held a welcome back dinner for Sharfudine Khan, FRELIMO representative to the U.S., and received news about the Mozambican struggle, which is summarized in the newsletter. The letter says CFM members recently took part in an effort to oppose Gulf Oil's complicity with Portuguese colonialism. At the Gulf meeting, Agostino Neto and Amilcar Cabral, presidents of the liberation movements of Angola and Guinea-Bissau, respectively, were nominated to the Board of Directors. The letter says that on June 16 CFM will commemorate the Massacre at Mueda, at which hundreds of Mozambican patriots who were attending a peaceful gathering to negotiate independence were killed by Portuguese troops. Enclosed with the mailing is Financial Report: Committee for a Free Mozambique: January-April 31 and the CFM Literature List.
