Thanks to Tom Watson for this link. Dunnes Stores in Dublin, the focus of international opprobrium when, in the 1980's a check-out worker, Mary Manning, followed her trade union policy and refused to check-out South African apartheid products. The dispute lasted three years and acted as a focus for people around the world who were opposing Thatcher's friends in the Apartheid regime. Well... some people never learn. Sign the petition here. Spread the word.

If there is anyone in Canada who stumbles across this site and would care to do me the occasional tape of this guy's programme, I would be eternally in your debt.
