The TWO most powerful for me will be WAR and ZIMBABWE. For the moment, meditate on the message contained in the lyrics of WAR. I shall bring you ZIMBABWE soon.

What is your favourite fellow SILians?

--------------------------

Bob sets to music the speech made presented to the United Nations by H.I.M Haile Selassie. Selassie's plea for human rights now created the most powerful anti-racist statement.

------------------------------------------------ WAR ----------------------------------

Until the philosophy which holds one raceSuperior and another inferior, Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned

Everywhere is war, me say warThat until there is no longer first class, And second class citizens of any nation Until the colour of a man's skin, Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally, Guaranteed to all, without regard to race Dis a war

That until that day The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship Rule of international morality, Will remain in but a fleeting illusionTo be pursued, but never attained, Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes, That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,South Africa sub-human bondage, Have been toppled, utterly destroyed Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west War up north, war down south, War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent, Will not know peace, we Africans will fight, We find it necessary and we know we shall win As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil, Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
