The Green Manifesto
Great nations are built not on the whims and caprices of providence but on the visions and pragmatism of their leaders. And today we dare to move beyond wishes, hopes and dreams and shape our destiny with our will, toil and sweat. We may be a despondent and broken nation now, but in forty years from today, we shall stand shoulder to shoulder with the giants of the world pointing the way for humanity. This is in our hands!
I make my pledge today. What about you?
Yes, what about you?
Are you going to continue to whine and wait until you die?
Have you not seen enough injustice and lawlessness to be outraged?
Do you not want a secure and just future for yourself and your children?
The vile and wicked politicians deride us
They cheapen our lives with empty promises and unbridled violence
They stifle our future and that of our children so that they and their offspring may perpetually reign over us
No evil is beyond them if it helps their cause of staying in power.
Shall we not break the shackles of oppression to set ourselves free?
To build a just nation where hard work is justly recompensed?
Where talent is prized and rewarded?
Where good triumphs over evil?
Together we make a solemn pledge:
For a nation where every citizen is owed a repayable debt of justice
Where talent and hard work are the only keys to success
Where the pride of the black man is finally founded.
