Cape Youth Congress (CAYCO), Remember June 16, 1987. Silkscreen poster produced and printed at CAP, Cape Town. Artist: Lionel Davis. “Freedom or Death; Victory is Certain” was a popular slogan of anti-apartheid youth in the 1980s, especially among those affiliated to CAYCO. CAYCO was largely responsible for the support for the ANC in the Western Cape. An affiliate of the UDF, it was at the forefront of battles with the police and army in the townships.
