Peter Hain - Octopus

Peter Hain



MP Peter Hain is renowned for his three decades of anti-apartheid campaigning. Born to anti-apartheid activists with links to Mandela that go back to the 1960s, he grew up in South Africa where his parents were jailed and then banned by the regime. At just 15, Hain made his first anti-apartheid speech at the funeral of an activist, a year before his parents were forced to leave South Africa, taking him to London. Hain's fervent campaigning throughout the 1970s made apartheid a national issue in Britain, whilst making him a target of the regime's security services. A regular contributor to the daily nationals, he is also the author of thirteen published works including Don't Play With Apartheid, Mistaken Identity: The Wrong Face of the Law and Sing the Beloved Country.
