On Tuesday 5 February, Helen Yaffe will represent the Non-Stop Against Apartheid project at an event organised by Football Beyond Borders and the SOAS Palestine Society. The meeting asks “What can the boycott of the U21 UEFA Football Championships in Israel learn from the Anti-Apartheid Movement?”
The event starts at 7pm in the Khalili Lecture Theatre at the School of African and Oriental Studies. It will include a screening of Fair Play, a documentary about the sports boycott of Apartheid in South Africa, followed by a discussion exploring the ways in which connections can been drawn between the history of international solidarity against apartheid in South Africa and solidarity with the Palestinian people today. Helen will draw on our research to discuss the actions of the City of London Anti-Apartheid Group in pursuit of the sports boycott of South Africa.
