Recorded message by Albert Luthuli to meeting in London in support of South African Leaders arrested on charge of Treason, 1 February 1957


Chief Lutuli spoke of the "unprecedented human suffering being brought about by apartheid" and said:

"But yet we are not despondent. We are encouraged in our struggle for freedom by seeing our stand of opposing apartheid vindicated by the justice of our cause and the undoubted growth of the freedom front in our country."
