stu11. Manchester and Durham students
In autumn 1974 students at Manchester University disrupted a meeting of the University Council in protest against its refusal to sell all the university’s shares in British companies with investments in South Africa. In response to earlier student demands, Manchester’s Vice Chancellor announced that shares in nine firms had been sold. At Durham University the student union held a vote which resulted a clear majority for the sale of holdings in companies involved in South Africa.
