South African Government Documents

Laws, Propaganda & Formerly Classified Materials
The following documents contain information from South African pertaining to its relations with Cuba, as well as other policies that led to the Cuban intervention in sub-Saharan Africa. In time I hope to gather many of the imporant passages of the immense Truth & Reconciliation Report.

While sparse now, the library is constantly expanding so check back often. If you would like to see a document posted, or have one to contribute, please contact me.

Star Speech by Nelson Mandela At Castro Reception. Speech by President Nelson Mandela at the Banquet in Honour of President Castro of Cuba. Given in Paarl, South Africa. I was even more miffed to miss this banquet. I had a South African friend who was working the event who was going to try to get me a bartending spot. That didn't work out either.

» "I am not interested in dry economic socialism. We are fighting against misery, but we are also fighting against alienation. One of the fundamental objectives of Marxism is to remove interest, the factor of individual interest, and gain, from people's psychological motivations. Marx was preoccupied both with economic factors and with their repercussions on the spirit. If communism isn't interested in this too, it may be a method of distributing goods, but it will never be a revolutionary way of life."
