#MadibaInspires #RIPNelsonMandela

"For all my comrades mourning in this intense moment of losing the revolutionary warrior Nelson Mandela, can we rejoice in efforts to continue his legacy to dismantle white supremacist capitalism and the military/police state which dictates our political and social value? Can we mourn a revolutionary with intentions to continue their revolutionary struggle, so they can truly rest in power?" ~ Sharmin Hossain
