How Far We Slaves Have Come!

by Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro
£6.50   paperback  Pathfinder (1991)

How Far We Slaves Have Come! by Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro "We will ensure that sooner rather than later the poor and the rightless will rule the land of their birth." (Nelson Mandela)
 
"Where did injustice and inequality come from? Where did povery and underdevelopment come from? Where doid all these calamities come from, if not from capitalism?" (Fidel Castro)
 
On July 26, 1991, Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro spoke together at a rally of tens of thousands in Matanzas, Cuba. This book contains their speeches at that historic event.
 
"There can be no greater cause in our era," Castro says, "than the one headed by the ANC." In Mandela's words, the role of Cuban internationalist volunteers in defeating South Africa's invasion of Angola was an "unparalleled contribution to African independence, freedom, and justice."
 
The struggles being waged by the people of South Africa and Cuba are today the most important examples for those everywhere seeking to rid the earth of racism and exploitation. Mandela and Castro explain why.
