Anti-Nuclear Group Ask for South African Divestiture

By Matthew H. Lynch and David M. Steigman

The Harvard Anti-Nuclear Alliance yesterday endorsed a resolution criticizing Harvard's financial policies regarding South Africa in a letter to President Bok.

The letter, the most recent in a series of statements critical of the University's financial role in South Africa by campus groups, supports resolutions of the Southern African solidarity Committee (SASC).

The SASC resolutions call on the Corporation to divest all financial holdings in commercial banks extending credit to South Africa and to support all shareholder resolutions seeking corporate withdrawal from South Africa.

The anti-nuclear group said, "We are working within the larger movement for peace and social justice in the world."

The group, formed this semester, held its first meeting December 6, and has planned several activities for next semester, including a debate.
