The speaker for Ely City Amnesty Group’s seventh annual lecture will be Paul Joseph, a close friend and political ally of Nelson Mandela.
The South African was just 16 when he became an activist and was jailed. He then became an amnesty prisoner of conscience – and fled to Britain in 1965, where he and his family obtained political refugee status.
He then dedicated his life to the anti-apartheid campaign in exile, saving the lives of hundreds of South African detainees.
Paul will be speaking at Ely Cathedral on ‘Activism and Exile’ this Sunday, October 16, from 6.30pm.
Admission is free, but there will be a retiring collection in aid of Amnesty International.
