[Dear Friends of Mozambique, On December 10 of last year the U.S. and Portuguese Governments signed an agreement]
by Committee for a Free Mozambique
New York, New York, United States
January 24, 1972
The letter notes that the U.S. –Portuguese agreement will grant Portugal $436 million in Export-Import backed loans and material aid in return for continued U.S. use of air and naval bases in the Portuguese Azores. The letter quotes from a letter from the President of FRELIMO to the Committee for a Free Mozambique that describes this pact as the latest escalation of U.S. Government aggression against the people of Mozambique. Several late-breaking news headlines are included: "GULF OIL REJECTED BY DAYTON OHIO CITY COUNCIL." "DAYTON ANTI-GULF ACTION" and "FRELIMO TACTICS SUCCEED." The document also includes "FINANCIAL REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE FOR A FREE MOZAMBIQUE FOR 1971."
