The document reports on news that General Electric is pressing the U.S. Export-Import Bank to provide $55 million in financing for a G.E. transformer system for the Cabora Bassa dam and hydroelectric project in Mozambique. Such financing involves U.S. support for Portuguese colonial rule in Africa and support for the whole white-supremacist power bloc in Southern Africa. There is strong opposition to the construction of the Cabora Bassa project under Portuguese rule, spearheaded by FRELIMO, the Mozambique Liberation Front which has been fighting in the field since 1964. • The Cabora Bassa Dam Project • Portugal's Objectives • The Role of South Africa • Opposition to Cabora Bassa - The Mozambique Liberation Front • Opposition to Cabora Bassa - European Action • General Electric - A Logical Choice • Cabora Bassa and U.S. Policy
