It was a hundinger of a talk our speaker Helmut Heitmnan, presented us with on our evening of 9th October. He simply dumped us into deepest Africa, pulling us along an information highway not normally revealed by international journalists. Once again he proved that political greed and the unstoppable desire for oil and diamonds are at the root of Africa's persistent ills, and the basis of innumerable wars, border clashes and calculated tribal extermination along racial and/or religious lines.
Due to time and space constraints Helmut Heitman's excellent in depth and thought- provoking study will only be reviewed in our next Newsletter. The talk itself has been recorded on tape by Geoff Mangin; whoever wishes to borrow it may contact the Scribe.
All visitors welcome. Tea and biscuits will be served.
