Aziqatali

Traditional South African

During the student demonstrations in Soeweto this song reportedly turned back heavily armed South African riot police.

Translation

We’re not afraid to go to prison
Freedom is the cause for which we fight
We are the united children of Africa
Freedom is the cause for which we fight
This heavy load upon our shoulders
Will require all our strength.

We’re determined to win our freedom.
