Paper presented by the Research, Information and Publications Department of the International Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa 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 discusses labor conditions in Namibia. About 50 percent of the workforce is employed by transnational corporations, and there has been much attention focused on the 'giants' of the Namibian economy, notably at the Rossing Mine (Rio Tinto Zinc Corporation). Little is known about labor conditions at smaller and lesser-known transnational corporations. The paper also mentions the Consolidated Diamond Mines (CDM) and discusses the Democratic Turnhalle Alliance (DTA). • Introduction • Labour Conditions - The Information Available • South African and DTA Propaganda • Living Conditions • Unemployment • Repression • Conclusion - The Role of IDAF • Addresses • IDAF Publication on Namibia
