The Nordic Africa Institute

Isolate South Africa Committee, ISAC


The Isolate South Africa Committee (Isolera Sydafrika-Kommitteén), ISAC, was constituted on 15 January 1979 after some preparation work during the autumn of 1978 performed by a group initiated by the Africa Groups of Sweden (AGS) together with some political and Christian youth organizations. The mission was to arrange an annual campaign for isolating apartheid South Africa with the following slogans: Do not buy South African products, Free the Political Prisoners, Dismantle Swedish Investments in South Africa, No Trade with South Africa, No Sport or Cultural Exchange with Official South Africa, Support the Liberation Struggle, Support ANC, South Africa out of Namibia and Support SWAPO. These were the objectives of the organization as well. Accordingly the name of the organization was at the beginning the Isolate South Africa Campaign.

ISAC was an umbrella organization consisting of a variety of organizations in one way or another engaged in the support for the struggle against apartheid and colonialism in southern Africa. All national organizations which could agree with the above mentioned slogans were welcome to become members. ISAC was mainly aimed at campaigning and its archive consists mostly of different types of campaign material. ISAC had at its peak 70 member organizations representing around 1.5 million individual members. All sectors of the Swedish society were represented except for the business sector, the conservative party and the extreme right wing parties, all of whom chose to stay out.

ISAC had annual general meetings to which every member organization sent one representative. The same rule applied for annual so-called ISAC meetings which changed name in 1981 to member meetings. The AGM elected a board for one year, which up to 1985 was called the Campaign Committee.

As a start a part-time campaign secretary was employed whose only task was to organize an annual boycott campaign week around Sharpville Day, 21 March. But after a few years the number of employed grew, also those who were employed full-time. The campaign activities expanded and ran for the whole year with different angles. ISAC was also involved in i.e. investigations, publishing books, conferences and exhibitions. Among the campaigns could be mentioned “Tear down the Apartheid prison”, “Fires against Apartheid”, and the Shell campaign, “Children against Apartheid”, “Peace and Election Monitoring”.

Several tours with representatives for ANC, SWAPO and African trade unions were carried out. During the 1980s the cultural tours were important. When Mandela visited Sweden a gala was arranged.

In 1986 the whole of the Swedish anti-apartheid movement was assembled for a so-called People's Parliament arranged by ISAC and the Swedish UN Association. Together with the Africa Groups of Sweden ISAC participated in annual Nordic meetings to coordinate the solidarity work in the different Nordic countries and also arranged information meetings with the Frontline States’ ambassadors to the Nordic countries. ISAC took part in numerous international meetings of different kinds and together with the Africa Groups also organized several such meetings in Sweden for the international Anti-Apartheid Movement.

ISAC got good coverage in the Swedish mass media. The press cuttings material is extensive. Important organizations within sport, culture and other areas invited ISAC to negotiations and cooperation. Private and official decision-makers had to take the existence of ISAC into consideration in some way when planning their activities involving Southern Africa. The solidarity work was eventually successful when imports of South African agricultural products were forbidden in 1985 and total trade sanctions were decided upon in 1987.

At the beginning of the 1990s, when the apartheid regime began to break down, ISAC started to engage in twinning projects between Sweden and South Africa. They recruited peace monitors and election observers to cover the elections in 1994 and consequently changed their name to ISAC - the South Africa Committee. ISAC was dismantled in 1995 when the aims of the organization were reached and the people of Namibia and South Africa had elected parliaments and governments in their countries.

Its entire archive was first transferred to the Nordic Africa Institute for successive transportation to ARAB. This material is not fully organized and it is dominated by material from campaigns, meetings, people's parliaments, international exchanges and other similar activities.
