80s18. National Convention Against Apartheid
The AAM held a National Convention on 23 and 24 June 1984 to mark the 25th anniversary of its founding as the Boycott Movement in 1959. Speakers included the then Tanzanian Foreign Minister and later President, Benjamin Mkapa, Andimba Toivo ja Toivo of SWAPO, the Chair of the UN Special Committee Against Apartheid, Ambassador Joseph Garba and David Kitson, who had just been released after serving a 20-year sentence in Pretoria Central Prison. Workshops and commissions discussed practical campaigning throughout the weekend. On 26 June the AAM relaunched the boycott campaign.
