Established in 1983, the United Democratic Fronts' goal was the establishment of a non-racial, united South Africa in which segregation is abolished and society is freed from institutional and systemic racism.

Designed in 1985, this UDF poster, is the first from a set of five that were produced to highlight the demands of a consumer boycott in the Western Cape.
Spurred by the strikes in Durban in 1973, the formation of trade unions, like the South African Scooter Drivers Union in Johannesburg (1984), provided labor protection to black South Africans.
