nam09. ‘End Import of Namibian Uranium’
In the 1970s and 1980s Britain imported uranium from Rio Tinto-Zinc’s Rossing mine in Namibia in contravention of UN resolutions. As part of a long-running campaign, on 8 November 1980 over 300 demonstrators marched to British Nuclear Fuels Springfields plant near Preston where the uranium was processed. They were led by trade union banners from Preston, Leeds and Merseyside and joined by trade unionists from all over the north of England. The demonstration was organised by the North-West Trade Union/Anti-Apartheid Liaison Committee and the Namibia Support Committee.
