AA News April 1983

AA News asked voters to ‘elect to act against apartheid’ in the run-up to the June 1983 British General Election. In a special interview, Dr Yusuf Dadoo showed how South Africa’s new constitution perpetuated apartheid. The newspaper reported on ongoing South African student opposition to apartheid and on SWAPO’s armed struggle in Namibia. It revealed the names on a long list of British MPs who had visited South Africa on freebies paid for by the South African government. Elaine Unterhalter described how black families were being dumped in the Bantustans after their homes in Johannesburg and the Cape had been pulled down by apartheid local authorities.
