This button was created by the Southern Africa Support Project (SASP). The Free South Africa Movement grew out of the occupation of the South African Embassy in Washington, DC by Randall Robinson, Executive Director of TransAfrica, U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Mary Frances Berry, and Congressman (D-DC) Walter Fauntroy on November 21, 1984. The protests spread to other South Africa embassies and consulates and over the next two years some 6,000 people were arrested at these protests.
