2017 has left the building and it would seem that it is taking all its baggage with it.
It has been a challenging year, but also a year of enlightenment.
It was the year the people finally began to realize the mess we have gotten our selves into. It was the year we began to rise up.
So let us celebrate the vigorous opposition to the mechanizations of the global elite.
Let us celebrate the brave & brilliant minds that stood up against bigotry, racism, patriarchy and sexual abuse.
Let us celebrate you, The People, for voicing your dissent and letting the world know that we wont go quietly into that good night.
Though we have made gains in 2017, revealed the men and women behind the curtain and rallied together, let us not forget that we have only won a few battles… the war has only just begun.
This year, let us grit our teeth, plant our feet and put up our dukes. This year, let us go toe to toe with those who wish to divide us, oppress us, enslave us and abuse us.
This is not a fight we or our children or the ones that will come after us can afford to lose.
So, this year let us go for the victory and destroy the network of oligarchs, gangsters, agents & traitors that are holding our nations hostage and profiting from the pain, misery & suffering of our people.
Let us all stand together as global citizens and ensure that we do not lose the gains we made.
Let us continue to push for equality, accountability, truth & justice.
Let us continue to oppose the Donald Trumps, the Jacob Zumas, the Markus Joostes, the corrupt officials and the oppressive regimes.
Let us continue to advocate for peace in Palestine, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Ukraine and all of the places where people continue to suffer and die.
A toast, to the new year. May it be a fruitful year and may it be the year where we continue to layeth the smacketh down, continue to question authority, continue to hold our governments to account and continue change the fate of our world
To 2018! May it be glorious. Happy New Year – AQ
