pic7007. Stop the Seventy Tour press conference

Peter Hain at a press conference called by the Stop the Seventy Tour (STST) campaign on 7 March 1970. The planned tour of England by an all-white Springbok cricket team in 1970 sparked widespread protests. After a campaign involving threats of direct action from STST and mass protests co-ordinated by the AAM, the tour was cancelled in May 1970. On the left of the photograph is Jeff Crawford, Secretary of the West Indian Standing Conference.
