AA News January–February 1981

The campaign to save the lives of young South African and Namibian freedom fighters sentenced to death by the apartheid government was the front page story in the January-February issue. The newspaper also exposed manoeuvres to readmit South Africa to the World Medical Association and reported on the campaign to elect Nelson Mandela as the new Chancellor of the University of London. It examined the implications for the anti-apartheid solidarity struggle of the election of Ronald Reagan as US President, and of meetings between NATO and the South African government.
