Struggle vet Raymond Suttner reflects on apartheid scars and life outside ANC

1 June 2017 6:15 PM

Anti-apartheid activist, writer and academic Raymond Suttner sat down with Redi Tlhabi to talk about his republished book.

Anti-apartheid activist, writer and academic Raymond Suttner's book Inside Apartheid’s Prison is being published again by Jacana Media, with a new introduction.

The book details Suttner’s experiences of being arrested several times and torchered during the liberation struggle against apartheid.

In the new edition of the book, Suttner describes his break with the ANC and the SACP.

He opened up about how he identified with the struggle of the oppressed as a white person, his experiences of being detained for seven years and the difficult decisions he had to make, then and now.

I may have experienced material loss...have experienced the cold outside the ANC. But I wonder what warmth there is inside.

Raymond Suttner, anti-apartheid activist, writer and academic

There's a commitment that doesn't stay unwavering. You have to renew it.
