Apartheid and International protests

"1981 - A country at war" documentary

The documentary we showed in class is impossible to find online. If you were absent for the screening OR have misplaced your notes you need to print off the task sheet and get the answers from a classmate. If you ask really nicely your teacher might be able to make you a copy. You will need to bring a blank DVD labelled with your name to them.....
