Mem­o­ries of the Strug­gle: Aus­tralians Against Apartheid This ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores Aus­tralia’s in­volve­ment in the strug­gle to end apartheid in South Africa, fo­cus­ing on the con­text and time­line of the anti-apartheid move­ment and high­light­ing the mem­o­ries of those in­volved. From as early as 1950, Aus­tralian trade unions, the gov­ern­ment, sport­ing icons, mu­si­cians and many in­di­vid­u­als took part in the fight for jus­tice in South Africa. Bob Hawke said on launch­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion: “I want all Aus­tralians to share the pride that I feel be­cause there is no doubt that Aus­tralia was sig­nif­i­cant in pre­cip­i­tat­ing the end of apartheid, and there is noth­ing in my prime min­is­ter­ship of which I am more proud.” Mu­seum of Aus­tralian Democ­racy. 18 King Ge­orge Ter­race, Parkes, Can­berra. Daily, 9am-5pm. Ad­mis­sion: $2. In­quiries: (02) 6270 8222.
