December 12th Movement mourns with our brothers and sisters in South Africa the lost of Winnie Madikizela Mandela. Winnie, with singular worldwide name recognition, was a front-line soldier on the ground as her husband Nelson Mandela and other South African freedom fighters were locked in apartheid’s dungeons. She herself spent years “banished” under house arrest in the battle against South African colonialism and the Western allies that backed it. Winnie’s memory will always be that of a most courageous sister who inspired us all, especially our youth, in the battle for African Liberation. AMANDLA!
