AA News January 1983

January’s new year issue set out the AAM’s priorities for 1983, including a pledge to step up its demands for an inquiry into South African undercover agents operating in Britain. It carried an eyewitness account of the Maseru massacre, when the South African Defence Force killed 42 South African refugees and local residents. In a special feature on British local government action against apartheid, it reviewed action taken by Sheffield Council to implement its apartheid-free zone declaration. It also showed how the British Government had failed to implement the Commonwealth Gleneagles Agreement on ending sporting contacts with South Africa.
