bdg53. Leeds University South Africa Anti-Investment Group
Leeds students produced this badge to promote their campaign to persuade Leeds University to sell its shares in companies with South African interests. They set up Leeds University South Africa Anti-Investment Group as part of the drive to persuade universities to disinvest from South Africa co-ordinated by the NUS-AAM student network in the 1970s. In response to student pressure, the university sold its holdings in ICI in 1973 and agreed to disinvest from firms whose South African involvement exceeded 5% of their total interests.
