hgs23. ‘No apartheid executions’ postcard
From the mid-1980s there was a big increase in the number of political prisoners sentenced to death in South Africa. At least 36 people were condemned to death in 1985–87 and five of them were executed. SATIS co-ordinated a ‘No Apartheid Executions’ campaign, drawing in thousands of people who had never before been involved in anti-apartheid action. This postcard, asking the British Foreign Secretary to intervene with the South African government, was part of the campaign.
