South Africa on the Move. A Tool Kit for Education and Action.
CUSO Development Education, Ottawa (Ontario).
This kit provides materials about South Africa for activists and educators and the Canadian public. The materials provide ideas for communicating the information and moving people to action. They include a user's guide with a kit overview and suggestions for its use; an educator's handbook on South Africa, which applies a popular education approach to South African solidarity education with ideas for planning and implementing programs, workshop examples, and popular education resources; and suggestions for taking action against apartheid in Canada. "Tools," designed for use in workshops, educational settings, or as handouts, include pamphlets exploding current myths about South Africa; conversations between South African and Canadian high school students, women, trade unionists, and church people; a summary of what South Africans are fighting against and for, including the Freedom Charter adopted at the 1955 Congress of the People; and a short piece outlining cultural expressions of resistance in South Africa, with a list of South African cultural resources available in Canada. "Background Information" materials include sectoral background papers on youth, women, trade unions, and the church; a look at Canadian government and corporate involvement in South Africa; and an overview of the South African resistance movement. A directory of Canadian groups and organizations involved in South Africa support work, an annotated listing of major print and audiovisual resources available on South Africa, and a glossary are provided.
