White Republic

Under pressure from the Commonwealth to change its racial policies the government staged a fraudulent referendum among the white voters and obtained a mandate to proclaim a White Republic on 31 May 1961. An 'All-in-African' Conference in Pietermaritzburg on 25-26 March called for countrywide demonstrations and a stay-at-home in opposition to the White Republic. The conference demanded instead a National Convention of all races.
