pic6001. Boycott Movement march and rally, 28 February 1960

Description:

In March 1960 the newly formed South Africa Boycott Movement held a Month of Boycott Action. It was launched at a march from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square. At the head of the march were ANC leader Tennyson Makiwane, Trevor Huddleston, Labour Party Leader Hugh Gaitskell and Dennis Phombeah of the London-based Committee of African Organisations. During the month, local councils all over Britain banned South African goods and supporters distributed leaflets to shoppers calling for a boycott.
