Description:

ON BUILDING A SOCIAL MOVEMENT: The North American Campaign for Southern African Liberation Revisited

This talk focuses on the North American campaign for southern African liberation. Saul evokes the region-wide battle for liberation from racial oppression and the world-wide mobilization of support for that regional struggle which emerged alongside it. These movements sought to publicize the positive goals and concrete undertakings of the liberation struggles on the ground in southern Africa along with the policies of governments and corporations in North America. Examining  both the successes and failures of this work, Saul also discusses the more general implications of such efforts to realize a broader global liberation from capital’s relentless logic; to craft current “anti-apartheid” work against comparable injustices in the relationship between Israel and Palestine; and to ground fresh efforts to renew solidarity with the peoples of southern Africa as they seek to renew the struggle against their own region’s “post-liberation” recolonization.
