60s36. Conference on liberation and guerrilla warfare, 1969
Background paper setting out the aims of the AAM conference on liberation and guerrilla warfare held on 6 July 1969. For a brief period in the late 1960s the AAM emphasised armed struggle as the main strategy for achieving liberation in Southern Africa. The conference gave a platform to representatives of the liberation movements from all the countries of the region. It followed the attempt by ANC guerrilla units to fight their way through Zimbabwe to South Africa in the Wankie and Sipolilo ‘incursions’ in 1967 and 1968, and took place in the climate of youth militancy that followed the 1968 student demonstrations in France and other European countries.
