    Background: Seven anti-Apartheid demonstrators, including two former political prisoners in Sough Africa, began a 24-hour fast in London's Whitehall administrative district on Saturday (18 July). The fast will finish on Sunday (19 July) afternoon when another demonstration -- against a resumption of arms sales to South Africa -- is due to begin.

    The two former political prisoners are Mr Wilfrid Brutus, 44, and 22-year-old John Schlapobersky. Mr Brutus was imprisoned on South Africa's Robben Island for expressing opposition to the regime.

    Mr Schlapobersky. now a university student in Britain, claims he was confined for two months last year under the Terrorist Act and released on condition he was deported.

    Two well-known anti-apartheid figures are expected to be present at Sunday's demonstration: the Anglican Bishop of Stepney, Dr Trevor Huddleston, and Lord Spoer, a Methodist Church leader.
