Our boycott list is widely regarded as the most comprehensive English-language list of progressive consumer boycotts. After the success of the Boycott Movement campaign, the newly formed Anti-Apartheid Movement faced more difficult times. Most significantly, it was an organisation which aspired to be an autonomous and democratically run British mass movement, but which had at its heart its relationship with the South African Congress movement. The South African government must be forced to change its policies, by practical pressure’. South Africa’s race policies were ‘no longer an exclusively internal affair of South Africa’s but a threat to international peace and security’. A later memorandum argued ‘the moral pressure of the consumer boycott is no longer enough. In 1959-60, the South African boycott was represented as a moral crusade with the limited objective of putting pressure on the South African government. In Britain the conformity of the 1950s had given away to a new mood of grassroots activism manifested in the campaign against nuclear weapons, and in the movements against racism in Britain and for African freedom. But after the shootings at Sharpeville and the banning of the ANC and PAC, the Anti-Apartheid Movement transformed its strategy to call for sanctions and support for the liberation movements.

At this moment the South African Congress movement launched its campaign of boycott within South Africa, which was internationalised by its exiled members and their British supporters. The subsequent Programme of Action argued that apartheid threatened the peace of the whole African continent ‘in much the same way as Hitler’s Germany threatened the European peoples’, and proposed making a ‘request to the United Nations to call for economic sanctions against South Africa’.
This challenged both economic interests which underpinned the whole British economy and deeply ingrained racial prejudices in Britain. For a brief period, from January to March 1960, the Boycott Movement mobilised people in Britain to act against apartheid on a scale not seen again until the 1980s. It assembled a remarkable cross-party coalition stretching from the Communist Party to dissident members of the Conservative Party and involving many people with no party political affiliation. Its links with the Congress Movement gave it a legitimacy which it used to overcome the reservations of the Labour Party, which feared the economic destabilisation it thought would follow black majority rule. The Boycott Movement also established key features which were to characterise the Anti-Apartheid Movement for the rest of its 35-year history.
