1986 Anti-Apartheid Hunger Strikers

Dear folks,

We are writing to support your courageous protest. We are survivors of a 14-day student hunger strike in 1986, which not only ultimately led Columbia to abandon its investments in companies doing business in South Africa but also boosted a growing national movement for divestment. In the end that helped the anti-apartheid movement prevail in South Africa.

When you act from conviction, you get the only results that count. So be strong and know that you are carrying on a proud tradition.

Let us know if there's anything you need.

Yours in solidarity,

Tony Glover
