The Struggle for National Liberation in Africa, World Peace Council 1975

Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project

See the end of this post for details on the project.

Leaflet: The Struggle for National Liberation in Africa, World Peace Council 1975

This leaflet looks at the situation of the anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist struggle in Africa in 1975 from the point of view of the World Peace Council. We have looked at the WPC on the Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project before including with What is the World Peace Council, 1975

Much of the leaflet is focused on the apartheid regime in South Africa and the support this racist and fascist regime received from the United States, England, France, NATO and Israel at the time. The leaflet also was released against the backdrop of the collapse of Portuguese fascism and Portuguese colonialism after the Carnation Revolution. We looked at a document of the Carnation Revolution recently with Portugal Freedom Year One 1926 - 1975, Ministry of Mass Communication.

When The Left Chapter began part of what I wanted to do on the blog was to show and highlight vintage public leftist election/political leaflets and booklets. While many of these have been offered with commentary to date, a very large collection of hundreds of them from several different sources remains and to preserve these often quite rare documents we will be posting them on a regular (almost daily) basis now often without or with minimal commentary so that people may have access to them as quickly as possible as an historical resource. 

While these will all be leaflets from a variety of different leftist viewpoints and countries, they are being posted as an historical/study resource and the views or opinions expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of this blog or blogger.

All of these posts (as well as posts made to date) will be listed on the page:Vintage Communist/Socialist Leaflets (which is still being updated with past posts).

If you have any public, vintage leaflets or booklets you would like to contribute to this project please contact us via theleftchapter@outlook.com
