Against Domination

During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to the struggle of the  African people. 
I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. 
I have cherished the ideal of a  democratic and free society in which all persons 
live together in  harmony with equal opportunities. 
It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. 
But, if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
