I want to uplift the name of Walter Rodney
Walter Rodney was a Guyanese, Pan-africanist, Marxist revolutionary.
He was murdered on in Guyana, on June 13, 1980
He was 38. It has been 40 years since he was killed.
His legacy lives on.
He has a message for all of us, that I will share with all of you.
Repeat after me:
“No one but the working class can liberate the working class.
Anyone who offers you freedom as a gift
Is either trying to fool you or foll themselves.
Freedom is not a gift. Freedom is something you take.”
(paraphrase from Walter Rodney, In the Sky’s Wild Noise: A Documentary on Dr. Walter Rodney)
