AA News Feb 1968

This issue headlined the trial of the 35 remaining accused SWAPO members facing a death sentence under South Africa’s Terrorism Act. Its editorial contrasted the courage of guerrilla fighters who had infiltrated Rhodesia's Wankie valley with British businessmen profiting from apartheid. The newspaper reported on protests outside the headquarters of British companies investing in South Africa and warned of Conservative Leader Sir Alex Douglas-Home’s pledge that a future Tory Government would resume arms sales to South Africa. In a special feature on African trade unions, it exposed the decision by the Trade Union Council of South Africa (TUCSA) to exclude its few remaining African affiliates from membership.
