AA News September 1981

AA News called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to try to halt South Africa’s invasion of Angola. This issue also highlighted the death sentences passed on three more young South African freedom fighters. From Scotland the newspaper reported on the award of the freedom of Glasgow to Nelson Mandela, and from Wales on the cancellation of a male voice choir’s planned visit to South Africa. It publicised the campaign to exclude South Africa from the Stoke Mandeville Games, forerunner of the Paralympics, and plans for student anti-apartheid action.
