AA News March 1980
The AAM accused the British government of allowing white Rhodesian police to intimidate voters in Zimbabwe and undermine the elections there. This issue also featured protests against the British Lions rugby team’s plans to tour South Africa. In a feature article it showed how the recently elected Thatcher government was using the settlement in Zimbabwe as an excuse for strengthening its ties with the apartheid government and warned against the threat posed by South Africa’s armed forces to the front-line states. It reported on a conference on Southern African political prisoners organised by SATIS and carried an appeal by SWAPO women’s leader Lucia Hamutenya for action to secure the release of gaoled activists in Namibia.
