It reported on the growing disinvestment campaign in the USA and carried an article analysing the vulnerability of the South African economy to economic sanctions. It revealed the apartheid government’s plan to stockpile oil as an insurance against an international oil boycott. It also exposed a government plan to change the racial balance of South Africa’s population by measures aimed at restricting the birth rate among South Africa’s majority African population.
