The Propaganda and the Reality

image of Apartheid

A study commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat for the Commonwealth Committee on Southern Africa, in pursuance of the mandate of the 1983 New Delhi Meeting of Commonwealth Heads of Government to initiate a project in co-operation with the United Nations to counteract South African propaganda.



Foreword by the Commonwealth Secretary-General

The study which follows is, I believe, unique in its detailed examination of the aims, methods and fallacies of South Africa's pro-apartheid propaganda. It is important for what it says, and also as evidence of the Commonwealth's role in the struggle to end apartheid. This leadership role in international action against apartheid is an inevitable consequence of the Commonwealth's commitment to the fundamental principles of multiracialism, equality, democracy and anti-colonialism.
