ANC Manual for Covert Actions

cryptome.org has posted the African National Congress manual for covert actions, first published during 1988-90 as a series of articles in 'Umsebenzi', later as a single pamphlet for underground operatives.

The manual covers many issues, including how to set up a secret network; the rules of secrecy; how to overcome surveillance; secret forms of communication; and how to behave under interrogation.

Recent events suggest a need for greater secrecy and clandestine actions by activists struggling against corporate global hegemony. Reading this manual would be a start.
