pic8413. Demonstration against PW Botha, 1984
At least 50,000 people marched through London on 2 June 1984 to tell South African President P W Botha he was not welcome in Britain.The demonstration was the beginning of an upsurge of anti-apartheid action which gathered pace for the rest of the decade. Botha met Prime Minister Thatcher at her country house Chequers, instead of Downing Street, because of the scale of the protest.
