Africa Release Campaign (103 Gower Street, London)
A recent meeting in London discussed the urgent need for an effective campaign to release the alarming and growing number of progressive African political prisoners detained in jails throughout the world. It was agreed to set up a campaign, provisionally called ARC (Africa Release Campaign). The aims of the campaign shall be: - to campaign for the release of progressive African political prisoners both on the African continent and elsewhere; - to develop analyses of these detentions in order to further the understanding of the political processes at work in Africa today.
