The ANC's London Recruits: the secret war against apartheid

The ANC's London Recruits: the secret war against apartheid. A discussion.

When the Apartheid regime in South Africa decimated the African National Congress, its exiled leadership recruited young, white volunteers to help keep the message of resistance alive by smuggling in ANC literature. Their work remained secret for forty years until the publication in 2012 of London Recruits: The Secret War Against Apartheid, edited by Ken Keable. This event will bring together many of these recruits to talk about what they did, why they agreed to participate, what it meant to them, how it changed them, and the role of international solidarity and collaboration in today's world
Speakers include Ronnie Kasrils, founding member of Umkhonto we Sizwe and former Minister of Intelligence Services; Ken Keable - London Recruit, and editor of London Recruits; Mary Chamberlain - London Recruit; Tom Bell - London Recruit, Katherine Levine - London Recruit
