Abstract: The Austrian Anti-Apartheid Movement (AAM) began in 1977 after the 1976 Soweto uprisings. It started as a small group of people who lobbied the Austrian public and government into taking an active stand against apartheid. Over the years the grouping was able to grow and to mobilise the Austrian public in supporting some of the campaigns against the apartheid regime, such as the boycott of South African products. The AAM was not aligned to any political party in Austria and thus had the support of all the political parties. This made it into an effective lobby group, especially in the mid-eighties. The AAM was also in touch with the other anti-apartheid movements in Europe. In 1993, the AAM was dissolved and a successor organisation was founded - the Southern Africa Documentation and Cooperation Centre (SADOCC).
