Shall Forever Be Remembered


Man of the people
Friend of Ernesto
Oh my leader
Comrade Castro

Once an outlaw
Friend of Oliver
Now we love you so
Comrade Madiba

You liberated men
Friend of Ho
You unshackled women
Comrade Mao

You fought for Wiyathi
‘Friend’ of Mathenge
Still buried in Kamiti
Comrade Kimathi

They lied about you
Friend of Kaggia
Now I understand you
Comrade Oginga

Down with the British
Friend of Samora
Fight to the finish
Comrade Mugabe

Mwanga wa Africa
Rafiki ya Amilcar
Tumeanza kuamka
Ndugu Nyerere



Thanks for redemption song
Friend of Garvey
One day the fight will be won
Ras Marley

Yes to U.S.A
Friend of Nasser
Rise rise Africa
Comrade Muammar

y con militantes te decimos
amigo di Bolivar
Seguiremos adelante
Companero Chavez


By all means I wish you were,
Friends to each other
For the dream wouldn’t be far
Comrade X and Luther


And Yasser Arafat
One day you’ll get your land back

All this could not end without MK Gandhi
Who told me about the deadly sins.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
