The World

The American Chamber of Commerce in South Africa took a strong stand against apartheid and recommended abolishing laws that discriminate against the black majority. The group also urged an end to restrictions on the movement of blacks and the extension of full property rights to blacks in their own residential areas. And it called for the phasing out of the labor system that requires black men to leave their families in distant tribal homelands. The chamber represents 300 U.S. companies that employ about 130,000 blacks.
