AA News October 1983

The October issue hailed the formation of the United Democratic Front in Cape Town as a big step forward in the anti-apartheid struggle. It outlined plans for a Week of Action against South Africa’s illegal occupation of Namibia, and exposed endemic malnutrition and disease in the Bantustans and black townships. It showed how the Western mainstream media misrepresented the war in Angola. Former political detainee Rev Cedric Mason described the tactics used by the South African security police to break the spirit of political prisoners.
