AA News July-August 1984

AA News again focused on breaches of the UN arms embargo, revealing President Botha’s request for British Coastguarder aircraft. It reported on the wave of defiance sweeping South Africa and the UDF’s campaign for a boycott of phoney elections to be held under South Africa’s new constitution. It alerted shoppers to new categories of products exported to Britain from South Africa and reported on plans by Nottinghamshire’s new Labour Council to review how apartheid was portrayed in its schools. A report from the aid agency War on Want examined the progress of the SADCC (Southern African Development Coordination Conference) since its formation in 1980.
