Resistance 1960 – 1966

Protests fulled by the prisoners hunger strike in 1966.

Protesting for the release of political prisoners on Robben Island.
The harsh prison conditions experienced by prisoners from 1962 only gradually improved after a thousand prisoners went on a mass hunger strike in 1966. The resistance of the wave of political prisoners during the apartheid era focused on the physical conditions they had to endure. The focus centred on those conditions that threatened their survival, the right to personal development as individuals and to the political renewal of organisations.
