AA News January-February 1982

AA News designated 1982 the ‘Year of Mobilisation for Sanctions’, calling for support for the AAM’s ‘Southern Africa; the Time to Choose’ conference and demonstration on 11–14 March. It listed the raids made by South Africa’s armed forces on the frontline states in 1981. It highlighted the murder of anti-apartheid lawyer Griffiths Mxenge in South Africa and the new ban imposed on Winnie Mandela. An article by Jim Mortimer, the Labour Party’s General Secretary-designate, exposed the role of the US in preventing progress in the negotiations for an independence settlement in Namibia.
