Qilombo: The Struggle Lives On

20151018_124513

Struggles rise and fall back, but they always leave something behind – a heritage, lessons for people to learn from and carry on. Occupy Oakland was one example. It couldn’t last forever, but it left something behind — a legacy for the future struggles. Here, some of Oakland’s youth explain how their experiences in Occupy Oakland led them to build this community center in AfricaTown.

It’s our job not only to carry the struggle forward, but to learn from the past – from what was done right and from the mistakes so that we can complete the struggle to overthrow the capitalist system itself.
