S. African Activist Gives Up Abortive Journey to China

From Reuters

Anti-apartheid clergyman Allan Boesak returned from an abortive trip to China on Friday, saying South Africa’s refusal to grant him a passport made it impossible for him to do his church work.

Boesak, the mixed-race president of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, is only able to travel on a travel document valid for two weeks after his passport was withdrawn by the South African authorities.

Boesak had intended to go to China for a conference of the China Christian Council.
