Report of the working groups at the seminar on Namibia at the Sheraton Washington Hotel, Washington, D.C., November 29 - December 2, 1982. The political action working group says the following points should be considered basic to the conference deliberation: a call for mandatory comprehensive sanctions against South Africa, reaffirm recognition of SWAPO as the sole legitimate representative of the people of Namibia; condemn Reagan's policies on Namibia and South Africa; call on groups to work to isolate Reagan policies on Namibia and South Africa; condemn the illegal occupation of Namibia by South Africa; need to support Frontline States; no linkage between the Cuban presence in Angola and a Namibian settlement (sovereignty issue for Angola); call on member States of the UN to recognize the UN Council for Namibia as the legal authority to administer Namibia until its independence and the lawful decrees that come from the Council, especially Decree no. 1. The report of the workshop on economic relations covers divestment, trade unions, oil embargo, research activities, and International Monetary Fund (IMF). • Political Action Working Group, Rapporteur: Mark Harrison • General Statement of Economic Relations Workshop, Rapporteur: Jim Cason • Resolutions of Workshop on Economic Relations with Namibia • Working Group on Material Aid, Rapporteur: Henning Melber • Report of the Committee on Information, Rapporteur: Susan Hurlich
