  • Description

    Tanzanian students marched on the British High Commission in Dar Es Salaam on Wednesday (August 5) to lodge a strong protest against proposals to resume arms sales to South Africa. They backed up their protest by donating cash and supplies to Southern African freedom fighters.

    The students, wearing their academic gowns, marched through the centre of the capital before heading for the High Commission.

    There, they found the building closed for a half-day. And though the demonstration leaders argued with police, they were unable to hand over a letter of protest intended for British Prime Minister Edward Health.

    But the demonstration continued. The marchers headed for the Liberation Committee headquarters of the Organisation of African Unity, where they handed over money and clothes collected during a campaign to aid Southern African freedom fighters.
