"The first phase of the DISA project, South Africa's Struggle for Democracy: Anti-Apartheid Periodicals, 1960-1994, has made accessible online to scholars and researchers worldwide South African serial literature of high socio-political interest that would otherwise be difficult to locate and use. Forty periodical titles have been selected from a very comprehensive list, with a view to presenting not only a wide spectrum of political views published during these years, but also a diversity of subjects such as trade unions, religion, health, culture, and gender. Publications reflecting both black and white viewpoints are included, and an attempt has been made to represent distinctive regional variations. Some of the publications were short-lived and, by necessity, of limited distribution. These factors lend a certain rarity value in that the publications are generally not well represented in research collections. "

The signatories to this agreement were the African National Congress (ANC), Pan African Congress (PAC), Azanian Peoples' Organisation (AZAPO), Black Consciousness Movement of Azania (BCMA) and the New Unity Movement (NUM)."
