The ‘Forward to Freedom’ exhibition went on show at TUC headquarters in London on 12 May. Union members heard TUC Assistant General Secretary Paul Nowak and the former Chair of the AAM Trade Union Committee Mike Sparham talk about the big contribution British unions made to anti-apartheid campaigns. Zita Holbourne from the civil service union PCS asked for support for ACTSA’s ongoing campaigns to help the peoples of Southern Africa overcome the legacy of apartheid. The exhibition will be at the TUC until 30 May. You can browse the photos on Flickr.
