9781928232124: The Congress of the People and Freedom Charter: A People’s History

This is a popular history of one of the most inspiring campaigns ever launched by the ANC and its allied organisations in Kliptown, Soweto, on 26 June 1955. It celebrates the fact that the Freedom Charter is deeply embedded in the Constitution of a free and democratic South Africa. In commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Charter and the 103rd anniversary of the ANC, the South African Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa asserted that, “It is therefore a matter of great significance that we stand poised to realise the call made in the Freedom Charter for a national minimum wage,” at the International Minimum Wage Experiences Workshop. This forms part of the ANC plans to reclaim the Freedom Charter which was initiated in 1953 by the ANC, the South African Indian Congress (SAIC), the South African Coloured People’s Organisation (SACPO) and the South African Congress of Democrats (SACOD) as the basis for its future plans.

Review:

Coming as it does on the 40th anniversary of the Freedom Charter, Vadi's history of the Congress of the people is timely and most welcome. I must commend him on a magnificent effort and I strongly recommend that the book be widely read. - Walter Sisulu, May 1995.
