Most of the London Recruits who secretly traveled to South Africa to undertake missions for the ANC were ordinary workers and Trade Union members. Throughout the ’80s, the Unions provided support for the Anti-Apartheid Movement and by 1991, 43 Unions, including every major Union, were affiliated to the AAM.
London Recruits is a forthcoming feature film about the true story of the young people who risked everything to help win freedom for people they’d never met, half way round the world.
