How the South African working class defeated apartheid

4:15pm Sat 30 Mar

About this session

For almost five decades, racial segregation was enshrined and institutionalised South Africa. Apartheid was a system based on brutal racism which oppressed and exploited the majority of Black workers while maintaining the enrichment and rule of a white minority. This session will discuss what it took to overthrow apartheid - the heroic resistance within South Africa along with the solidarity of workers and student movements across the globe, as well as explore the broken promises and betrayals of the ANC.
