Apartheid South Africa has the powerful defence force in Africa, thanks to the help of Britain and other western powers.
After the Soweto student uprising in June 1976, the Anti-Apartheid Movement stepped up its campaign to stop Britain selling arms to South Africa. This poster uses the iconic photo of Hector Pieterson, the first student killed in the protests. This item was digitized by the Anti-Apartheid Movement Archives Committee, which made it available to the African Activist Archive.
