© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Significance How did black South Africans oppose apartheid? Background In 1948, the Nationalist Party, led by D.F. Malan, won the elections and gained power in South Africa. Malan introduced apartheid, which was to keep whites and blacks separate. The aim of apartheid was to maintain white political and economic power. Malan passed a series of laws, which established apartheid, for example: –1949: Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act –1953: The Bantu Education Act (prevented blacks from attending schools with whites. Blacks received poor educational opportunities.) –1953: Separate Amenities Act (meant that different races were segregated in public. For example, blacks had separate ambulances.)

One of the main organisations that opposed apartheid within South Africa was the African National Congress (ANC). It consisted of members from different races. In 1952, they organised the ‘Defiance Campaign’. ANC members ignored ‘whites only’ notices and attempted to get arrested. This is a good example of Civil Disobedience. In 1952, ANC membership increased from 7000 to 100,000.

In March 1960, a demonstration against apartheid took place in the town of Sharpeville. Police opened fire on the unarmed demonstrators, killing 63 people. It became know as the Sharpeville Massacre, and countries around the world condemned apartheid and the South African Government.

In 1961, the ANC established an armed group known as the ‘Umkhonto we Sizwe’ or ‘Spear of the Nation’. Their leader was Nelson Mandela. Their main tactic was to attack white- owned property. In 1962, Mandela was arrested and was sentenced to life imprisonment. During the 1960s, persecution of black South Africans increased. Over 1.5 million black South Africans were forced to move into ‘Bantustans’, which were all-black areas within South Africa.

Its key role was to persecute people and groups who opposed apartheid. During the 1970s, many countries boycotted South Africa. Sporting events were boycotted. Economic sanctions were place on South Africa. Large companies, such as Pepsi Cola, closed their factories within South Africa. New leaders emerged, such as Steve Biko, who continued to resist apartheid. He was arrested in 1977 and was tortured. He died in police custody. Biko became a martyr. Other African countries, such as Zimbabwe, provided financial, military and political support to the ANC. By the 1990s, the white government realised it had to negotiate with the ANC.
