tsh36. ‘Free All Detainees’
Early in 1989 more than 300 South African detainees went on hunger strike in protest against their detention without trial. The AAM publicised the hunger strike and called for their release. Thousands of people were imprisoned without charge under the nationwide State of Emergency declared in June 1986. They included many children and young people. Some of them were held for over two years.
