This organization works in solidarity with Southern Africans striving for political and economic liberation.
Abstract: This organization works in solidarity with Southern Africans striving for political and economic liberation. The Committee (TCLSAC) examines the role Canadians play collectively and individually by looking at Canada's government policies and economic ties as related to that area of the world.
One of the central focuses of TCLSAC's solidarity work is support for workers' struggles in Southern Africa (i.e. the formation and recognition of genuinely free non-racist trade unions and the organization of unorganized workers) and public education on the links between Canadian workers' struggles and those of workers in Southern Africa. TCLSAC publishes "TCLSAC Reports" eight times per year (subscription rates: Regular $15-$25; Unemployed, Students and Seniors $8-$10). TCLSAC has an extensive library which includes material on workers and women. As well, TCLSAC has for sale published material (books, pamphlets, etc.) from international publishers on workers in Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Angola amongst other subjects.
The April, 1981 issue of "TCLSAC Reports" features an article which makes the links between struggles of domestic workers in Canada and in South Africa.
This organization no longer exists.
