Come and listen to comrade Khwezi Kadalie in February as part of the CPGB-ML’s ongoing work to bring about a really anti-imperialist understanding in the anti-war and solidarity movement in Britain today.
Khwezi was a fighter in the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa and is a life long communist and marxist-leninist revolutionary, his grandfather organised the first all-black trade union in South Africa (the Commercial and Industrial Workers Union of Africa) and attended the First Congress of the Communist International. His talk will touch on the important lessons he draws from his time in the movement and his feelings about the present fight against the re-colonisation of Africa.
The CPGB-ML will be taking Khwezi to the following destinations:
*BRISTOL*: Sunday 5 February, 2pm – 5pm @ Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, Bristol

Khwezi is a qualified type-setter and printer, he was arrested by the Apartheid secret police shortly after the 1976 Soweto uprising and tortured for 4 months in their prisons. After prison he worked for the ANC in the diplomatic service and the information department in Germany and Britain. After the un-banning of the ANC and other organisations he served the movement in different capacities and between 2000 and 2005 he worked in the Department of Trade and Industry in a senior position.
