AA News February 1971
AA News began 1971 with a redesign: its front page featured a Janus-like Prime Minister Edward Heath facing both ways on apartheid. The issue focused on the AAM’s campaign against the Conservative Government’s decision to resume arms sales to South Africa. Over 100,000 people signed a Declaration opposing the sales and thousands attended nationwide meetings and rallies. AA News featured major British companies with big stakes in apartheid and reported on the spread of FRELIMO guerrilla activity to Tete province, home of the Cabora Bassa dam. It exposed South Africa’s growing economic ties with Israel, Ivory Coast and Iran.
