︎ JAMAA AL-YAD COLLECTION
$2 single card
$6 SET OF 4 LANGUAGES
A Jamaa Al-Yad project
Multi-lingual postcard series, available as single cards or the full set of 4 languages.
Part of a modular artwork set created in response to the Inaugurating Resistance call for work in 2016.
Each postcard reads on the front, in either English, Arabic, Spanish, or French, the Nelson Mandela quote from his address at the funeral for Chris Hani in Soweto, South Africa, in 1993: “This government is illegitimate, unrepresentative, corrupt and unfit to govern.”
The postcard back has a further excerpt from this speech:
“It is you who have allowed the bully boy tactics of the AWB to go unchallenged. We, the victims of violence, have been blamed for the very acts that take our lives. Yet you treat the far right with kid gloves, allowing them to publish hit lists when it is a crime to do so. Your police do not protect marchers from gunmen who mow them down, as in Vanderbijlpark. Black lives are cheap, and will remain so as long as apartheid continues to exist. And let there be no mistake: there have been many changes, and negotiations have started, but for the ordinary black person of this country apartheid is alive and well.”
