pic8717. ‘Sanctions Now’ demonstration
Sixty thousand people marched through London from Embankment to Hyde Park on 24 October 1987 to call for sanctions against South Africa. The demonstration took place before the Commonwealth conference in Vancouver. A delegation handed in a letter to 10 Downing Street. The speakers in Hyde Park included SWAPO President Sam Nujoma, Johnstone Makatini from the ANC, TUC General Secretary Norman Willis, Glenys Kinnock, Labour MPs Bernie Grant and Joan Lestor, and AAM activist Rekha Patel.
