“The Rise of the Worker’s Movement and the ANC from 1973 to 1994” – Professor Eddie Webster

This public talk examines the rise of the workers’ movement and the politics of the ANC (1973–1994). Prof Webster will discuss the historical origins of the links between the ruling party — then a liberation movement struggling through the worst years of Apartheid — and the workers’ movements, which were rapidly developing and newly energised during this period.

This question has continued relevance for current politics, given the political affiliation between the ANC, Cosatu, and the South African Communist Party (SACP). It is especially relevant in the year the ANC celebrates its 100 year anniversary, amidst ongoing debates about the state of our new democracy and the future of the party.
