AA News February 1968
This issue headlined the trial of the 35 remaining accused SWAPO members facing a death sentence under South Africa’s Terrorism Act. Its editorial contrasted the courage of guerrilla fighters who had infiltrated Rhodesia's Wankie valley with British businessmen profiting from apartheid. The newspaper reported on protests outside the headquarters of British companies investing in South Africa and on Sir Alex Douglas-Home’s pledge that a future Tory Government would resume arms sales. In a special feature on African trade unions, it exposed the decision by the Trade Union Council of South Africa (TUCSA) to exclude its few remaining African affiliates from membership.
