• Urges all national Unions of Students to take immediate steps to influence their governments and countrymen to desist from implicit or explicit support for apartheid or the South African government;

• Condemns all countries which provide manpower military and economic support to the South African government in its efforts to impose a status quo against the will of the people;

• Mandates the Secretariat and urges all National Unions of Students to make every possible effort to create scholarships abroad for South African students who because of their colour, are denied their rightful opportunities for higher education;

• Urges all National Unions to commemorate every year March 21—the day of the Sharpeville massacre in 1960. as a day of solidarity with the South African students and people in their struggle against South African apartheid;

• Asks NUSAS to continue and increase the supply of information on the evil policies of the South African government to the international student community and to encourage other organisations opposed to apartheid to similarly increase their publicity to counter the dishonest propaganda of the South African government and economic interests of many South African immigrants and tourists abroad;

• Calls on all National Unions to intensify their efforts to achieve a complete economic boycott of South African goods, an effective oil embargo and, If necessary, a blockage of South African ports;

• Calls upon National Unions of Students, in accordance with NUSAS policy, to endeavour by all possible means and action to improve its representativity in the light of the population of South Africa;
