The front page of this issue focused on South African and Namibian political prisoners, featuring campaigns to save the lives of six young men sentenced to death and a new international initiative calling for the release of Nelson Mandela. The newspaper carried horrifying pictures of a massacre by South African soldiers of women and children in northern Namibia. A centrespread reported on a new wave of strikes by black South African workers and highlighted British TUC support for mandatory UN sanctions. In a moving obituary, Ronald Segal remembered Ruth First, killed by a bomb placed by South African BOSS agents.
