American Committee on Africa
Memorandum to Dr. Edwin H. Lind, President, Polaroid Corporation saying that the American Committee on Africa (ACOA) has advised the Polaroid Revolutionary Workers' Movement of ACOA’s complete support for their demands that the Polaroid Corporation completely disengage from South Africa. The memorandum says ACOA views the presence of U.S. business in South Africa as reinforcing the racist repression inherent in the apartheid system. The memorandum cites the decision by Neil Wates, managing director of Wates Ltd., not to do business in South Africa. [Note: This memorandum was circulated to people by Charles Hightower, Washington Director.]
