The 1984 Anti-Apartheid Produce Strike
Mary Manning in conversation with dramatist Matthew Spangler

In partnership with Hinterland.

Mary Manning knew virtually nothing about apartheid in South Africa when, at the age of 21, she carried out a directive of her union and refused to 'ring up' the sale of two Outspan oranges. She was suspended by Dunne's Stores and nine of her co-workers walked out in support, thus becoming central figures in a prolonged strike. Mary Manning, co-author of Striking Back: The Untold Story of an Anti-Apartheid Striker, will be in conversation with dramatist Matthew Spangler.
