The 42nd National Conference of the ANC was held in Queenstown from 18 - 20 December 1953, one of the towns not included in Chief Luthuli's ban. The terms of the ban, however, made it necessary to restrict the audience for his presidential address to ANC members at a closed session.
The ANC is in an alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Each Alliance partner is an independent organisation with its own constitution, membership and programmes. The Alliance is founded on a common commitment to the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution, and the need to unite the largest possible cross-section of South Africans behind these objectives.
