hgs08. Save the ANC Six
These six young men were among the hundreds who left South Africa after the 1976 Soweto student uprising and returned secretly after military training. They were intercepted by the South African Security Forces and sentenced to death. Partly as the result of international protests, Anthony Tsotsobe, Johannes Shabangu and David Moise had their sentenced commuted. Marcus Motaung, Jerry Mosololi and Simon Mogoerane, known as the Moroka Three, were executed on 9 June 1983.
