Description of the Sub-Subject: Desmond Tutu (South African Nobel Peace Prize)

The Former Anglican Archbishop (Christianity) and world peace leader Desmond Tutu, was born in South Africa in 1931.

He was the first black archbishop of Cape Town and Bishop of the Church of the Province of South Africa (now the Anglican Church of Southern Africa).

If you remain neutral when the injustice reigns, your way is that of the oppressor.”

In 1976, the protests in Soweto, against the use by the Government of Afrikaans Language as a compulsory medium of instruction in the black schools became a massive uprising against the apartheid. From then, Tutu supported an economic boycott.

“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible while the Africans were owners of the land. They invited us to pray, and we close our eyes. When we woke up; they possessed the land, and the Africans had the Bible.” Desmond Tutu

The US and British companies, the main investors in South Africa, began a phase of disinvestments, which increased the unemployment but also a collapse of 35% of the Rand, which pressured the Government to initiate reforms. In parallel, Tutu organised a peaceful demonstration of over 30,000 people in Cape Town.

Tutu was the Bishop of Lesotho from 1976 to 1978, continuing his struggle against the apartheid based on the non-violence (Ahimsa) and actively advocating for the reconciliation between all parties involved in the apartheid.

He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 and the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1986.
