Azanian People'S Liberation Army (APLA)

In 1968 APLA succeeded the defunct Poqo* as the armed wing of the PAC.* APLA refused to abandon armed conflict and organized a number of 'soft-target' attacks on whites. Despite government threats of exclusion from the multi-party negotiations the PAC was represented at the talks that began in April 1993. In November APLA's Sabelo Phama agreed to cooperate towards a moratorium on violence.
