Vote For Pat Coffey For Student Trustee
by Champaign-Urbana Coalition Against Apartheid
Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, United States
Undated, about April 1978
The leaflet says one year ago a referendum was held at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. More than 3,000 students voted in order to decide whether or not the University should divest itself of stocks in corporations that do business in South Africa. The majority voted for divestiture. Now, a year later, the University continues to own such stock. Leaflet headlines: Trustees Ignore Student Referendum • Apartheid: The Poverty of the Black Majority is the Wealth of the White Minority • How the University Profits from Apartheid by Condemning It • More About Apartheid • U. of I. Investments in Apartheid • What You Can Do
