#stuc2018 Help raise funds for the memorial by buying a copy of the poster printed to announce Nelson Mandela’s visit to Glasgow in 1993 – only £10 from the ACTSA stall just outside the STUC Congress hall. The poster is supplied in a tube and there is a limited number available.
2018 is the 25th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s visit to Glasgow in 1993 to collect the Freedoms of nine UK cities.
He told the crowd in George Square: “While we were physically denied our freedom in the country of our birth, a city 6,000 miles away, and as renowned as Glasgow, refused to accept the legitimacy of the apartheid system, and declared us to be free.”
Proceeds from the poster sales will go to the ACTSA Scotland, the Scottish Nelson Mandela Memorial Foundation and Community HEART.
