At a time when our cherished Mandela’s health is of concern, these words ring dear to heart and are just bring out the true spirit and passion that remind us of his love and sacrifice.

This animation created for and the #agit8 projection on the South Bank ahead of G8, animated and directed by Dina Makanji of Sweet Crude in London. The piece was projected onto the tower of the TATE Modern for live performances.

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

― Nelson Mandela, 1964
