South Africa Divestiture. Target Report No. 11 by Joel Saxe( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This student resource guide prepared by the South Africa Catalyst Project for the United States Student Association (ussa) focuses on the student anti-apartheid movement and divestiture activities of American students. Divestiture of university-held stock in U.S. corporations operating in South Africa is the major focus of the student anti-apartheid movement. The ussa is seeking to apply pressure to U.S. corporations and the U.S. government to cease their support of the apartheid economy and military apparatus of South Africa. The history and activities of the U.S. student anti-apartheid movement are summarized. The escalation of student actions in the spring of 1978 in support of college and university divestiture is described. The ussa estimates that 110 schools have anti-apartheid groups. The goals and objectives of the movement are outlined and problems and challenges to divestiture are discussed. The process by which students can investigate university investments is explained, as well as various methods that can be used for divestiture including shareholder resolutions. A discussion of the administration's response to student pressure for divestiture centers on administration-sponsored Investment Advisory Councils and the Sullivan principles. Conflicts of interest relating to the divestiture problem and objections to the sale of Kruggerands in the U.S. are also discussed. A list of resources for anti-apartheid organizing is appended. (Bh)
Prop. 13 Tax Revolt. Target Report No. 13 by Don Tamura( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proposition 13 (Jarvis-Gann Initiative) and its impact on higher education and students are analyzed in this report prepared by the National Student Association. The initiative, passed in California in 1978, fixed property taxes at one percent and allowed the level to rise by two percent annually. It is suggested, however, that the beneficiaries of Proposition 13 are businesses and large property owners. The poor, elderly, handicapped, and government workers will feel the burden of diminishing local services and employment. The effects of this legislation on students include: curtailment of academic programs, high rent and utility fees, tuition increases, and loss of city and county jobs. A series of questions and answers on Proposition 13 and its impact, alternative tax relief measures, and long-range prospects are presented. Comparable action that has been taken in other states is also discussed. (Sf)
Reinstate the Draft? Target Report No. 15 by Bill, Comp Orleans( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Position papers collected by the United States Student Association (ussa) outlining objections to the reimposition of a selective service draft are presented. The ussa believes that a draft is unnecessary because: total active military strength is maintained even when voluntary enlistment falls short of its goal; it would increase military costs; the all-volunteer force attracts more intelligent recruits; and it would not solve the problem of racism in the Armed Forces. The ussa also suggests that compulsory registration violates privacy and constitutional rights and that support for the draft is based on inaccurate projection figures. Supporting materials from the Friends Committee on National Legislation, the National Interreligious Service Board for Conscientious Objectors, and the Agency for Military and Draft Counseling are included. An overview of Congressional opinions and legislation pertaining to the draft are presented. Activities that can be undertaken by student governments and student groups to counter Congressional moves to reinstate the draft are provided, including petitioning, writing editorials, and contributing to radio talk shows. Names and addresses of contact people and organizations are also provided, as is a publications order list. (Bh)

Federal regulations pertaining to subminimum wages are discussed. Seven steps for student action to eliminate subminimum wages are detailed. A list of regional Wage and Hour Division Offices of the Department of Labor is included as well as a list of institutions that have applied for college Work Study Subminimum Wage waivers.
