Poster produced as part of the Anti-Apartheid Movement's campaign against the decision by the 1970–74 Conservative government to resume arms sales to South Africa. The campaign was supported by the churches and the Trade Union Congress (TUC). It involved marches, threats by trade unionists to boycott work on arms for South Africa and a 100,000-signature declaration presented at the 1971 Commonwealth conference held in Singapore. The only weapons sold were five Westland helicopters.
