80s21. ‘State of Emergency – Sanctions Now!’
President P W Botha imposed a state of emergency over large parts of South Africa on 20 July 1985. The army and police were ordered to ‘shoot to kill’ protesters and many African townships were sealed off from the outside world. This AAM leaflet accused the British government of being the ‘Number One Protector’ of apartheid by blocking sanctions within the Commonwealth and at the UN.
