Irish Left Archive: Join the Irish Anti-Apartheid Movement Poster, c.1980s? April 2, 2015

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Left Online Document Archive.


A very welcome addition to the Archive, a poster from the Irish Anti-Apartheid Movement (surprisingly there’s no page for the IAAM on wiki. This page for Kadar Asmal, who was a founder of the IAAM and a founder of the British Anti-Apartheid Movement has some detail on the organisation).

Many thanks to Alan of Irish Election Literature for forwarding this to the Archive.

Across teh water the South African cops had some agents in the AAM. The Kitson affair springs to mind. http://weeklyworker.co.uk/worker/1050/collaborators-and-the-anc/
