Hi there...speaking of human rights as it relates to Africa, yesterday a lawsuit was filed in U.S. courts naming five multinational companies as defendants - Ford, GM, IBM, Barclays, and Daimler - for aiding the Apartheid regime in South Africa. The suit seeks compensatory damages for plaintiffs. We'll see how the next administration and the next state department do with weighing in on this.

Very interesting Michael! We got a bit of an update on this process from Dennis Brutus a few weeks ago -

It's great to see Harvard Law students has been so involved with this process. If we get inquiries from activists in the future regarding the lawsuit, we may pass them on to you so they can learn more from someone deeply involved with the case.
