Abstract: [From intorduction] In the late 1980s, children, teenagers and young adults were central to sustaining the antiapartheid Non-Stop Picket of the South African embassy in London. The Picket was organised by City of London Anti-Apartheid Group [City Group, for short], with its central demand being the unconditional release of Nelson Mandela. It started on 19 April 1986 and continued outside South Africa House, twenty-four hours a day, until Mandela was released from gaol in February 1990 (Brown and Yaffe 2013; 2014). This chapter considers youth involvement in British anti-apartheid activism as a means of exploring how children and young people engage in geopolitics. We argue that youthful concerns about global geopolitics are always entangled with the everyday politics of growing-up.
