Description:
This flyer announces a night of solidarity with South African liberation. [A NIGHT OF SOLIDARITY / WITH THE STRUGGLE IN / SOUTH AFRICA (AZANIAO / HEAR SOUTH AFRICAN BROTHER / JEFF DUMO BAQWA]. Underneath the title an outline of the African continent is drawn. In the center of the outline is text that reads [Unarmed Black demonstrators are being shot down / today in South Africa. Over 500, many of them students, / have been killed by the racist police. Are these simply / "riots" as the press here claim? Or are the African people / fighting for their national liberation from one of the cruelest / regimes in history? And why is the U.S. government aiding / the Nazi-like South African regime? / Come and hear Jeff Dumo Baqwa, a brother just arrived from / southern Africa. In 1974 he escaped from South Africa where he'd / been exiled to a Transkei village for his activities in the South / African Student Organization (SASO). He's now Director of / Projects for the Southern African Student / Movement (SASM). Many members / of SASO have recently been / arrested and some face execution / for fighting the / apartheid regime.] The bottom of the page has the event date and time [Saturday, Nov. 20th 7:00pm / Joan of Arc JHS / 154 W. 93 St. NYC.] The other side of the flyer repeats this information in Spanish.
