AA News June 1984

South African President P W Botha’s visit to London on 2 June was the focus of this issue of AA News. The newspaper advertised plans for a national demonstration in protest against the visit. It also publicised the AAM’s National Convention against Apartheid on 23-24 June. It revealed wide loopholes in the UN mandatory arms embargo, which meant that half of ARMSCOR’s total budget was still spent overseas. South African interference in elections in Lesotho and the alliance of the apartheid government with the fascist dictatorship in Chile were exposed in feature articles.
