On 9th October 1993 Nelson Mandela received the Freedom of Glasgow, Dundee, Midlothian, Aberdeen and five other UK local authorities at a joint ceremony in Glasgow City Chambers.
He followed this up with a speech to a crowd of thousands in George Square, a joyous and unforgettable occasion. He then went on to speak to a conference of local authorities from across the UK, held in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall that afternoon.
We asked you to send in your memories of your involvement in the anti-apartheid movement including of the day Nelson Mandela danced in George Square. Below are memories from those who were there on that unforgettable day. More memories will follow from those who were (and are still) part of the wider anti-apartheid struggle.
