Paper presented at the “International Seminar on The Role of Transnational Corporations in Namibia” at the Sheraton Washington Hotel in Washington, D.C., November 29 - December 2, 1982. The paper says the primary goal of the Inter-Lutheran Committee for Nuclear Responsibility is to stop uranium mining in Saskatchewan and that it became aware that there were corporate links between Canada and Namibia in the uranium industry. The paper says the Committee felt it could build on the consciousness of Canadian Lutheran to increase grass-roots awareness of the Namibian situation and to show that the uranium industry is not a good corporate citizen. The paper mentions Olympia & York and Rio Tinto Zinc. • Appendix "The Corporate Web"
