In order to exist, man must rebel, but rebellion must respect the limits that it discovers in itself - limits where minds meet, and in meeting, begin to exist. (Albert Camus)
To proudly show the black stain on our thumb and make a vote count. To protest when the votes are counted wrong. To demand a fair court of hearing. To meet on common ground for the greater good. As a nation we have repeatedly been forced into situations when we had no choice but to rebel. And, as a nation we have also been able to settle differences and forge a stronger path ahead. Today's SLR thus salutes the rebel in us, through words, through fiction and outraged verse. We remain in hope of smoother roads ahead, trying not to choke until the dust beneath our feet settles and are willing to acknowledge each other as travellers with the same destination.
