Occupy Vancouver's Lovely Library sign hard at work.


Another issue of indubitable importance

is that certain members of the oppressor class

join the oppressed in their struggle for liberation,

thus moving form one pole of contradiction to the other.

Theirs is a fundamental role, and has been

throughout the history of this struggle.

It happens however that as they cease to be exploiters

or indifferent spectators or simply the heirs of exploitation

and move to the side of the exploited,

they always bring with them the marks of their origin :

their prejudices and their deformations,

which include a lack of confidence in

the peoples' ability to think, to want and to know.

             To my comrades, male and female

                              Who fell,   And picked themselves up,
                                 Licked their wounds,                                                                                          
                                    Cultivated their laughter,'
                                          Preserved their gaiety, 
                                               And carried on regardless.
