"I think the main aspect of our solidarity is extremely simple: it is to fight"
Comrades Amílcar Cabral and Fidel Castro
"To end up with, I should just like to make one last point about solidarity between the international working class movement and our national liberation struggle. There are two alternatives: either we admit that there really is a struggle against imperialism which interests everybody, or we deny it. If, as would seem from all the evidence, imperialism exists and is trying simultaneously to dominate the working class in all the advanced countries and smother the national liberation movements in all the underdeveloped countries, then there is only one enemy against whom we are fighting. If we are fighting together, then I think the main aspect of our solidarity is extremely simple: it is to fight - I don't think there is any need to discuss this very much." - Amílcar Cabral, 1964 (excerpt from Brief Analysis of the Social Structure in Guinea)
