AA News June 1969

AA News welcomed the release of PAC leader Robert Sobukwe, but deplored his continued 12-hour house arrest. Its editorial urged the British Government to support the freedom fighters in Zimbabwe instead of negotiating with the illegal Smith regime. It reported on the AAM’s first conference for trade unionists, which urged unions to end the investment of their funds in companies with interests in South Africa. A feature article argued that the time had come for a reassessment of AAM tactics and that it might be necessary to set up a new organisation to undertake direct action against British organisations that collaborated with apartheid.
