Solidarity Center Report: Labor Mourns Nelson Mandela(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Working people worldwide yesterday marked the loss of former South African President Nelson Mandela, whose unyielding struggle to attain equality, human dignity and social justice for his countrymen and women will remain an inspiration to all who still carry on the fight for human rights. “While the world has lost a great statesman and unwavering warrior for freedom, we have not lost President Mandela’s impact on and contributions to his country—and to vulnerable and exploited people everywhere,” said Shawna Bader-Blau, executive director of the Solidarity Center. “He showed the world the true meaning of liberation by taking on all forms of oppression and championing equality. We are awed by his determination and celebrate his extraordinary accomplishments, which are a gift to the world.” Commemorations of President Mandela’s life and legacy are expected to be observed in Washington, D.C. over the next week.
