AA News April 1980

AA News welcomed the victory of the parties of the Patriotic Front in the Zimbabwean elections, and called for a stepping up of campaigns in support of the freedom struggle in South Africa and Namibia and against British collaboration with the apartheid government. It highlighted the campaign to end British uranium imports from Namibia, under a contract signed by the Labour Government. A centrespread focused on South Africa’s illegal occupation of Namibia and listed British companies that exploited the country’s rich mineral resources. The issue celebrated the 25th anniversary of the formation of SACTU (South African Congress of Trade Unions) and reported on the campaign by Swansea University students to stop South African companies recruiting there.
