Abstract

The study focuses on four broad themes. In the first, the focus is on the bases or camps used by the ANC and PAC to train their cadres inside the country immediately after the turn to armed struggle in the early 1960s. The second theme deals with the 'freedom route' taken by cadres of the liberation movement in the course of their journey into exile. Distinction is drawn between the routes taken by cadres of the different liberation movements during a particular historical period. The objective here is to outline some of the main camps of the liberation movements abroad, whether they were transit camps, military bases or camps used for the training of cadres.
