pic8833. Nelson Mandela Freedom Rally
The Mandela marchers on stage at the 250,000-strong Nelson Mandela Freedom rally in Hyde Park on 17 July 1988. The rally was the climax of the AAM’s ‘Nelson Mandela: Freedom at 70’ campaign and the biggest ever anti-apartheid demonstration in Britain. At the end of the campaign a poll showed that Nelson Mandela had become a household name in Britain and 70% of people supported the call for his release.
