Conditions in Portuguese Angola are also the subject of a third campaign being launched this month. But this time it is Gulf oil which is coming under fire from the newly-formed Gulf Committee.
In a background paper to the campaign, the Committee point out that Gulf Oil paid $25 million to Portugal in 1972 for Angolan oil - half the yearly cost of Portugal's colonial war. The point is reinforced with photographs of Africans napalmed by the Portuguese and descriptions of the repressive conditions in Angola.
The Gulf Committee are also writing to the Chairman of Gulf Oil, demanding that the company end its moral and financial support for the Portuguese regime and threatening to organise a boycott of Gulf Oil stations in Britain.
