Letter: Patsy Pillay obituary | Beverley Naidoo

Patsy Pillay said that the turning point in her life came in the 1940s, when listening to the Rev Michael Scott addressing an open-air lunchtime meeting in Johannesburg.

After his return to Britain, Scott became a major advocate for Namibian independence. In 1960 he co-founded the anti-nuclear Committee of 100 with Bertrand Russell. Along with anti-apartheid, these were causes to which Patsy, herself in the UK from the late 40s, offered passionate support.
