Coming Together

“The power of coming together to deliberate, argue and agree is sacred. This is because it can never be brought back except for in memory. As we convene in our truth, in our hang overs and burdens – we destabilise a world order that denies our existence. We challenge the norms that question our validity and worthiness to be in public or private space – in liberty and in freedom – in community. That we can freely express ourselves in our anguish and delight, with our social history and connection to reality. That we are intentional in our belonging and becoming. We are together to avenge our dignity and proclaim to our younger beings: you are okay, you will be fine, you will survive” – Dumiso Gatsha
