AA News March 1983

AA News again called for economic sanctions against South Africa, in the context of Western countries collusion with the apartheid government over its illegal occupation of Namibia. A special feature by Alan Brooks argued that the AAM had won the debate over codes of conduct for British companies in South Africa and that they had failed to improve black workers wages. The newspaper paid tribute to Canon John Collins, President of the International Defence and Aid Fund, who died in January 1983. It reported on the ‘Culture and Resistance’ conference held in Amsterdam, which pledged to step up the cultural boycott of South Africa and to promote an alternative resistance culture.
