This button was created for the Lawyers Against Apartheid Day protest action at the South African Embassy in Washington, D.C. that was organized by the Southern Africa Project of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. Eight lawyers submitted to arrest at this demonstration on January 8, 1985. The Free South Africa Movement organized demonstrations at the Embassy each day starting the day after Thanksgiving in 1984. [See photo of the January 8, 1985 action on this website, in which participants appear to be wearing this button.]
