Organisation unknown, June 16: Demand June 16 as a paid holiday, c. 1985. Silkscreen poster produced and printed at CAP, Cape Town. Artist(s) unknown. This poster was probably made by full-time students at CAP. Its message links education struggles to labour issues. A decade or so after the Soweto uprising of 1976, many former students were active in the trade union movement as shop stewards and leaders, injecting their militancy into struggles on the factory floor.
