Interlinked with the struggle against apartheid, St George’s Cathedral is one of Cape Town’s landmark sites. Modern day Cape Tonian activists often use the Cathedral as a launching place for activities and action.
- A landmark site for its role in South African history and a meeting place for modern day protests, St Georges Cathedral in the heart of Cape Town represents a time of change in South Africa. In 1986, Desmond Tutu was enthroned as the first black archbishop of South Africa. From the doors of Ste Georges Cathedral, he led numerous marches and campaigns for the formal end of apartheid.
