Translation: "Total economic and military boycott of South Africa" This poster highlights several Dutch enterprises doing business in South Africa. The poster accompanied a petition campaign organized by Anti-Apartheids Beweging Nederland (AABN), Medisch Komitee Angola and youth and students' organizations calling for a comprehensive economic and military boycott. Shell in 1979 became the subject of a specific campaign, organized by Kairos and KZA. In the 1970s the Amro Bank had been successfully targeted by AABN, BOA, Kairos and other organizations responding to a call from the World Council of Churches to boycott European banks involved in loans to the apartheid regime. Of the relative obscure Dura construction company then trade-union leader Wim Kok said in a speech to activists in 1979 that it had built the Durban court building "where now offenders of the apartheid laws are convicted daily..." Wim Kok later served as Prime Minister of the Netherlands from 2994-2002. Design: Frank Beekers, Lies Ros, Rob Schröder
