Songs for Nelson Mandela


In tribute to Nelson Mandela, here's a question for you. Who are today's Nelson Mandelas, in the sense that they are people rotting in prison, imprisoned by an unjust system, berated for fighting against brutality, corruption and injustice?


Who won't end up loved by (nearly) all the world, or have people backtracking wildly when their opinion turns out to be so obviously the wrong one, people rotting away in places like Guantanamo, people like Shaker Aamer, people in every country in the world.

Songs for Nelson Mandela, South African edition.

Songs for Nelson Mandela, International edition.
