AA News May 1966

The AAM responded to the British Government’s announcement that it had reopened talks with the illegal Smith regime in Rhodesia by launching a petition calling for majority rule. The May issue carried the petition. It also summarised Bram Fischer’s speech from the dock and looked at where new Labour MPs elected in March 1966 stood on Southern Africa. It featured a statement by prominent academics and writers countering the argument that recent coups in West Africa meant that the British should support ‘stable’ minority governments in South Africa and Rhodesia.
