AA News November 1967

Under the headline ‘OAU backs freedom fighters’, this issue of AA News highlighted the setting up of a commission of military experts by the Organisation of African Unity. It reported on a new spirit of militancy at the AAM’s annual general meeting, with calls for new forms of action such as sit-ins and the establishment of ‘Fighting Fund’ for the guerrilla fighters in Zimbabwe. Resolutions passed at the AGM included a call for ‘greater democratisation’ of the AAM’s structures and for a review of racial discrimination in Britain as part of the world struggle against apartheid. The issue also reported on the setting up of a SWAPO campaign committee calling for the release of all Namibian political prisoners, focusing on the 37 SWAPO members on trial under the Terrorism Act in Pretoria.
