This paper examines the spatial practices of the Non-Stop Picket of the South African Embassy in London (1986–1990). It explains how this movement produced solidarity with those resisting apartheid in South(ern) Africa. It argues that how the need for anti-apartheid solidarity was framed politically cannot be understood in isolation from how it was performed in practice. The study of solidarity is enriched by paying attention to the micropolitics of the practices through which it is enacted and articulated through key sites.
