Anti-Apartheid

The late Nelson Mandela who is to be buried near Soweto tomorrow emerged, during his days as a political prisoner in Robben Island, as the public face of a global anti-Apartheid campaign.



In Ireland the Irish Anti-Apartheid Movement was founded by Kadar Asmal who later served under Nelson Mandela in the government of South Africa.

Ireland hosted many anti-Apartheid demonstrations while white minority rule prevailed in South Africa.
