NO STRUGGLE EVER REALLY COMES TO AN END – SOCIALIST PARTY PRESIDEN
By Socialist Party reporter
THERE’S a lot that can be said about our freedom and the unending struggles for it, Socialist Party president Fred M’membe said in a statement to mark Africa Day, May 25.
Africa Day – formerly African Freedom Day – is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity on May 25, 1963.
Dr M’membe said, “No African will ever forget that our national liberations were won in struggles, persevering and inspired struggles, carried on from day to day; struggles in which we were undaunted by privation or suffering and stinted neither strength nor blood. They were filled with tears, fire and blood.
“For all our challenges, or even failures, today we are all deeply proud of our struggles, because they were just and noble and indispensable in putting an end to the humiliating bondage forced upon us.
“But no struggle ever really comes to an end, and we all have the duty to keep the ideas, principles, and goals of our national liberation struggles alive.
“We have continually to reiterate our national liberation and demand respect for our people’s achievements.”
