19th of July 1984, Mary Manning, a worker in Dunnes Stores, refused to handle fruit imported from South Africa in protest against apartheid, following a decision taken by IDATU members the previous day.

When suspended, she and other members of the IDATU union at the shop went on strike. The strike continued until April 1987 when the import of South African goods was banned.

A clipping from an article, reading: On the 18th. July thousands of people from all over the country mobilised in Dublin for a march on the British Embassy in support of the Hunger Strickers [sic]. Before reaching the Embassy however, the marchers were stopped at Merrion Rd. by a wall of cops in riot gear, seceral [sic] rows deep. This strategy of confrontation and intimidation, meant to frighten people off the streets and deny them expression, was resisted by many brave comrades who tried to fight their way through. The cops held rank for fifteen minutes and then charged. Their violence and brutality as they ran riot, beating everyone in their path was pyscotic [sic].

12th of June 1982, the Socialist Labour Party (SLP) voted to dissolve.

Founded in 1977, the SLP sought to build a party of the Left, bringing together former Labour members and Left groups, which joined as tendencies — the Socialist Workers’ Movement (SWM), League for a Workers’ Republic, Irish Workers Group, and Movement for a Socialist Republic; though all left the SLP within a few years (with the SWM tendency leaving last in 1980).
