pic8431. March against apartheid constitution
Anti-apartheid supporters marched through central London to protest against the inauguration of P W Botha as President on 14 September 1984. The inauguration followed segregated elections, boycotted by South Africa’s Indian and Cape Coloured communities. Africans had no vote. United Democratic Front (UDF) leaders were detained before the elections. The elections coincided with a wave of protest that swept through South Africa’s black townships, starting in Sharpeville in the southern Transvaal.
