spo33. Protest against the Gatting cricket tour
In 1990 a rebel cricket tour of South Africa, led by Mike Gatting, broke the international boycott of South African cricket. AAM staff members Paul Brannen (pictured here) and Karen Talbot protested at the photocall and press conference held on the day the team left for South Africa. 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.
