"Ronnie Kasrils spoke at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow on March 20, 2009 at a lecture organized by Pulsemedia.org and Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

- During the years of apartheid rule in South Africa, Ronnie Kasrils was a leader in the banned ANC and its military wing Umkonto we Sizwe
- Hunted by the security police, he was described by them as 'armed and dangerous'
- Kasrils served as a government minister in post-Apartheid South Africa until 2008
- Today Kasrils is an activist in the Palestine Solidarity Committee, South Africa
- The Palestine Solidarity Committee in South Africa has won dock workers there to a policy of boycotting all Israeli ships that dock in South African ports
In quotes: WORSE THAN SOUTH AFRICAN APARTHEID 'I will state clearly, without exaggeration, that any South African, whether involved in the freedom struggle, or motivated by basic human decency, who visits the Occupied Palestinian Territories are shocked to the core at the situation they encounter and agree with Archbishop Tutu’s comment that what the Palestinians are experiencing is far worse than what happened in South Africa, where the Sharpeville massacre of 69 civilians in 1960 became international symbol of apartheid cruelty.' FOUR PILLARS OF STRUGGLE 'With that moral advantag"
