int39a3. Vijay Krishnarayan interview clip 3


Vijay Krishnarayan became involved in the Anti-Apartheid Movement in 1984 while studying town and country planning at Oxford Polytechnic. As student union president, he was elected to the National Council of the student section of the Labour Party and in 1988 took part in the Mandela Freedom March from Glasgow to London. In 1989, he campaigned against the rebel cricket tour to South Africa before moving on to a career in civil society organisations, promoting people-to-people solidarity.

In this clip Vijay tells why he felt compelled to campaign against apartheid and why he  thought it was essential that black people should have a strong presence in the Anti-Apartheid Movement.
