spo18. 'Stop the Gatting tour'
In 1990 a rebel cricket tour of South Africa, led by Mike Gatting, broke the international boycott of South African cricket. This petition was presented to the Test and County Cricket Board and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. AAM supporters also picketed 40 county cricket matches involving members of the team. The tour was cut short by protests inside South Africa and made a big financial loss.
