Site: African National Congress (1 memorial)

N1, Penton Street, 28

From the Islington Tribune: "The three-storey office was the headquarters of the ANC between 1978 and 1994. It was there that Oliver Tambo and Thabo Mbeki planned the overthrow of the apartheid regime. But in March 1982 the building survived a terrorist bomb planted by agents working for the South African government......The ANC moved out of the Penton Street office when Nelson Mandela became president in South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. The anti-apartheid movement was succeeded by charity Action for Southern Africa (ACTSA), which remained in the building until 2006."
