by Kenneth K. Martin, Operation Namibia
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Undated, Fall 1975?
The mailing is a Dear Friend letter from Kenneth K. Martin. The mailing says today Namibia is faced with a new threat —- dismemberment under the guise of liberation. The Republic of South Africa has set out to confuse world opinion with a plan to divide Namibia into small puppet "tribal" states, leaving the mineral wealth of the country in white hands and making the states themselves poor dependents and reserves of cheep labor for South Africa. The South West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO),which has the support of the overwhelming majority of Namibians and which the United Nations has recognized as the legitimate voice of Namibia, resigned itself to the necessity of armed struggle. We plan to deliver to Namibians book which, through censorship, control of imports, and legal terrorism South Africa has denied to Namibians. The "books for a free Namibia" project is an ambitious undertaking by many dedicated people in several countries. [Operation Namibia was a project of Philadelphia Namibia Action Group.]
