South Africa: come and see our wildlife (classic subvert)

No Rights? No Flights! Campaign poster (Source: City of London Anti-Apartheid Group)

Throughout the spring of 1988 members of the City of London Anti-Apartheid Group regularly occupied the offices of South African Airways in Oxford Circus.  Their ‘No Rights? No Flights!’ campaign responded to the growing repression in South Africa by targeting the state-run airline for boycott.  This poster, a play on South African Airways adverts at the time, was produced as part of that campaign.
