City of London Anti-Apartheid Group 1986–1990, part XII

Friday, 17 June 2011 continued......... some c-text: it was approximately the 25th anniverary of the start of the Non-Stop Picket of the South African Embassy in Trafalgar Square by the City of London Anti-Apartheid Group, it was also 35 years and one day since the Soweto Uprising/s.

Some of our people were just kids in those days and some of our people are not with us any more. Around 40 auld comrades made it including in order of appearance: Daniel J, Simon M, Jay C, Georgina L, Addy P, Alwyn T, Paul M, Ruby N, Irene M, Richard W, Helen M, Gavin B, Sharon C, Cat W, Richard R, Deirdre H, Gary L, Selman A, Nicki J, Sousa, Patrick A, Andy P, Ann B, André S, Anil B, Susan & Helen Y, Grace L, Eric L, Mark F, Chris K and me and probably countless others who are not in any of these pics. The night ended with around a dozen auld lags singing rousing, hearty, catchy choruses from Nkosi SikeleleBayangena and E Rile underneath the arches of Waterloo Bridge. Brothers and sisters, Amandla Ngewethu!
