spo16. ‘Apartheid Disables!’
Disabled People Against Apartheid campaigned for South Africa’s exclusion from the Stoke Mandeville International Games, forerunner of the Paralympics. The group was formed in 1981 after sportswoman Maggie Jones was banned from the European Paraplegic Table Tennis Champonships for distributing anti-apartheid leaflets. This leaflet advertises a demonstration against the South African team at the 1985 Games. Later the same year South Africa was suspended from future Games.
