ISSUE: VOLUME 1.03/4 AUTUMN/WINTER 1972
The primary homeland

Apartheid and 'the primary homeland'

Since 1969 the South African Government, egged on by the General Synod of the Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk, has threatened to abolish the right of appeal to the Supreme Court against decisions of the publications Control Board - the government-appointed censors. With the appointment of a new, political hardliner as Minister of the Interior last August, there is perhaps less chance than ever that the threat will not become inquiry. In this issue, Index publishes an address given in South Africa which illustrates some of the problems connected with the South African government's plans to abolish the right of appeal against decisions brought by the State Publications Control Board.
