In the Words of South African Struggle Heroes
'We have lost a lot of freedom in the past 30 years. But it's only when we don't stand up for it that we lose all.' Alan Paton, teacher, author and liberal politician, 1978. 'If it is for the truth that I must die, so let it be.' Joe Seremane, political prisoner, later Democratic Alliance chairperson. 'In Africa, things sometimes happen upside down. Such as the sun first had to set on the continent before it rose, and not the other way around.' Mathews Phosa, ANC exile, politician and Afrikaans poet.
