“Trafalgar Square in London was a key location and a global focal point for campaigners who helped develop and maintain the international pressure that made a decisive contribution to ending apartheid in South Africa.
There is a symbolic relationship between Trafalgar Square, South Africa House and the values of freedom, human rights, justice and democracy that many struggled for.
It is premised on the simple belief that everyone can contribute to transformational change. It is vital that this legacy is preserved and that the values that were won continue to be championed”.
