Bemerkung : TRAC, the Transvaal Rural Action Committee, established in 1983 as a project of the Black Sash, published this Newsletter with the intention of giving communities under threat of forced removal in the Transvaal Province access to information about other communities in similar situations, as well as creating public awareness of the plight of these communities. In monitoring forced removals TRAC attempted to assist those threatened with removal as well as those already "persuaded" to move and living in conditions which resulted in unemployment, poverty, disease and malnutrition. The Government policy of forcibly removing "black spots", that is all Blacks owning land in areas deemed by the Government to be part of White South Africa (made relatively easy by existing Government legislation) resulted in dire socio-economic hardship for urban and rural communities alike.
