Radicals at Christmas: Nelson Mandela Christmas cards
These words are from ‘Nelson’ Rolihlahla Mandela's Christmas message in 1990 following his release from 27 years in prison for "conspiring to overthrow the state". He was in the process of negotiating an end to South Africa's brutal apartheid regime. He wrote: "Together we have it in our power to defeat those who continue to kill to maintain the old order. We have it in our power to transform our country into the peaceful and prosperous homeland of all our people. Let us work together to achieve these goals. Let us vow never to celebrate another Christmas in chains. We have a right to be free, and we shall be free!" Why not join the great Mandela in spreading this uplifting message this Christmas?
