Apartheid tale shared in city

Have your say

A PUBLIC meeting will hear the courageous story of young people who travelled to South Africa to undermine its racist apartheid regime.

The meeting, at Sheffield’s Central United Reformed Church, tomorrow, Wednesday, January 23, has been organised by South Yorkshire supporters of the Morning Star newspaper.

It will be addressed by two people with first-hand experience of the campaign during the later 1960s and through to the mid 1970s.

One of them is Sheffield-based Sean Hosey, a retired city council housing manager, who was arrested and tortured, spending five years in prison, in 1972.

He was awarded a military medal by South African president Jacob Zuma last year.

Ken Keable, the editor of new book ‘London Recruits: The Secret War Against Apartheid’, will also speak.
