AA News September 1969

The September issue reported on the sentencing to life imprisonment of five SWAPO members in the conclusion of a long-running trial under South Africa’s Terrorism Act. It carried an eyewitness account of the forced removal of black South Africans from their farms in Natal to a tented settlement, where they were dumped on the veldt with no sanitation. Its letter column continued the debate on future tactics of the AAM. In a foretaste of the campaign to stop the 1970 Springbok cricket tour, AA News reported on how one activist disrupted a fixture of the all-white South African Wilfred Isaacs cricket team.
