History

The Consultation Committee for Southern Africa (Samrådskommittén för Södra Afrika) was probably formed in 1973 and based on two declarations, the so-called Oslo and ILO documents. It was an umbrella committee or a network of organizations which all in one way or another were involved in the support for the liberation movements in Southern Africa.

The member organizations represented various sections of the Swedish society, such as the labor movement, leftist and liberal political parties, youth organizations, the church and religious organizations, ANC and SWAPO representations, solidarity organizations for Vietnam, Cuba and Palestine and others.

The committee arranged a campaign week in December 1973.

The committee was probably dissolved in 1974.
