The World : Zulus Oppose Divestment

May 28, 1985

One of South Africa's largest black movements, the Zulu political group Inkatha, handed the U.S. consul general in Durban a petition signed by 100,000 people opposing the withdrawal of U.S. investments in South Africa. "We petition President Reagan, the senators of the United States of America and its congressmen to reject pressures exerted on them to express abhorrence of apartheid through disinvestment," the petition said. It argued that divestment would hurt black South African workers most and "would further the politics of violence and damage the politics of reason."
