This button most likely was produced by the Anti-Apartheid Movement (AAM). From the mid-1970s to 1986 AAM and End Loans to Southern Africa (ELSA) worked together to campaign against Barclays to get the bank to withdraw from and stop making loans to South Africa. In 1985, because other international banks stopped making loans to South Africa, the apartheid government declared a debt repayment standstill after which Barclays ceased making new cross boarder loans. In 1986 Barclays withdrew from South Africa.
