The March Month of Boycott Action organised by the Boycott Movement in 1960 was launched by a march and rally on 28 February. At the head of the march from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square were ANC leader Tennyson Makiwane, Trevor Huddleston, Labour Party Leader Hugh Gaitskell and Dennis Phombeah of the London-based Committee of African Organisations. During the month, local councils all over Britain banned South African goods and supporters distributed leaflets to shoppers calling for a boycott.
