On 24 July 2013, Liverpool City Council unanimously adopted this proposal:

Liverpool and South Africa
Council recognises the contribution of seamen, building workers, trade unionists, Christian Churches and other progressive forces from Liverpool in the fight against apartheid in South Africa.

In particular Council applauds the bravery of our citizens who risked life and liberty to work underground for the African National Congress in South Africa in the 1960s and 70s, as recorded in the recently published book “London Recruits”.

In recognition of their actions and our city’s active commitment to the fight against injustice, in whatever form, it asks the Cabinet Member for Culture and Tourism to bring forward proposals to erect a commemorative plaque at a suitable location in the city.”
