The Chains That Bind Us All: Oliver Tambo in Canada

Malcolm Harris and Michael Connolly

1987, 25:30 minutes, colour, English


The Chains That Bind Us All is a record of the August 29th rally held for Tambo in front of the Ontario legislature in Toronto. Speaking in support of the ANC from the platform are Native leader Dennis Chromarty, Anglican Archbishop Ted Scott and other anti-arpartheid activists. Oliver Tambo pleads for economic sanctions and explains the ANC's decision to take up arms against apartheid. Speeches from the platform and interviews on the grounds emphasize the complicity of Canadian corporations and the urgent need for Canadians to take action against racism.
