Abstract: At the Anti-South African Indian Council (SAIC) Conference, held in January 1983, the call was made for a united front to be launched to co-ordinate the anti-Black Local Authorities and anti-Tricameral Parliament campaigns. A committee was established at this conference to look into the feasibility of forming a united front. On August the 20, the national United Democratic Front (UDF) was launched at a rally at the Rockland Civic Centre in Cape Town. The aim of the UDF was to co-ordinate opposition to the Apartheid State's reforms, and it served a critical role in the promotion of infrastructural networks between various organisations, regions and parties deeply affected by the State.
