Why have we offered the MWLF an open forum? We liked their first statement for its vitality, for its ethical positioning, for its announced intention to be part of a broad movement of debate and action, and above all, because it addresses the need to embrace and take over Mandela’s struggle, actualized to contemporary, hence global, challenges.
_ “Mandela is dead! Long live Mandela! . . . We are resistance and we are demanding. . . . We are the rainbow nation-world. We are a world liberation front. . . . We are everywhere. We are interconnected. We are organizing locally and globally. . . . Mandela lives! The struggle goes on!”
