Uppsala Isolate South Africa Committee


Uppsala ISAC was an umbrella organization for different organizations in one way or another engaged in support of the struggle against apartheid in South Africa and Namibia. It started in 1978 initiated by the Uppsala Africa Group (UAG). At the beginning of the 1980s ISAC in Uppsala almost ceased its activities but in 1985 it was revitalized. It was dissolved after the South African democratic elections in 1994.

ISAC Uppsala worked with lobbying, boycott actions against South Africa and fund raising for ANC and SWAPO.

Some correspondence with the liberation movements can be found in boxes E1.1 and B1.
