Nelson Mandela statue



Nelson Mandela statue

London's second statue to Nelson Mandela.

Location: Parliament Square, Westminster

Description: This statue of Nelson Mandela was unveiled on 29th August 2007 by Richard Attenborough, Ken Livingstone, Wendy Woods (widow of Donald Woods), and prime minister Gordon Brown.

The campaign to erect the statue was started in 2000 by the late Donald Woods, a South African journalist driven into exile because of his anti-apartheid activities. Mandela stated that it represented not just him, but all those who have resisted oppression, especially those in South Africa. He added: The history of the struggle in South Africa is rich with the stories of heroes and heroines, some of them leaders, some of them followers. All of them deserve to be remembered.
