I have fought …

Nelson Mandela: My Inspiration (and "Inspirator")

SAFLAG(good)

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

– an extract from Nelson Mandela’s Rivonia Trial speech (1963)

(Madiba was imprisoned for 27 long years – Prisoner No:466/64)
