hgs06. No Apartheid Executions!
These three young men were among the hundreds who left South Africa after the 1976 Soweto student uprising and returned secretly after military training. They were intercepted by the South African Security Forces and sentenced to death in August 1981. This leaflet advertised a 12-hour vigil outside the South African Embassy as part of a long-running international campaign to save their lives. As a result of the campaign the sentences were commuted to life imprisonment.
