Books For A Free Namibia
A PROJECT OF OPERATION NAMIBIA, A TRANSNATIONAL NONVIOLENT ACTION CAMPAIGN TO AID THE STRUGGLE FOR NAMIBIAN FREEDOM
by Philadelphia Namibia Action Group
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Undated, late 1975?
The leaflet includes background on Namibia. The leaflet says in the spring of 1975 Operation Namibia intends to sail a boat from southern Europe to Namibia. The boat will carry banned and otherwise unavailable books to Namibians who have requested them. The crew will be multi-national, experienced in direct action, and committed to nonviolence. As the boat nears Namibia, South African authorities have the choice of either attempting to stop us at some point, or allowing us to deliver the books. The "books for a free Namibia" project is part of a long-term campaign - Operation Namibia. The Philadelphia Namibia Action Group initiated the campaign in March, 1975, because of a growing concern about Namibia and the crisis in Southern Africa.
