interview - violence

"Mutabaruka sings: BY THE BALLOT, BY THE BULLET, BY THE BIBLE, BY THE GUN ANY WHICH WAY FREEDOM MUST COME*...
"Yeah, that makes a lot of sense! I'm into the thing like Martin Luther King, you know. You know, he just turned his cheek and got struck down. I wouldn't say that I would turn my cheek. I would like to prepare myself that if I had to fight to live I would."
(*Do you know our Mutabaruka interview?)
Listen to Al Anderson! (200 K)

"But I mean just go out and destroy to prove a point about bringing down tyranny, I don't think I wanna be part of that. Cause I know the military will come in and we would lose. I think it has to be done intellectually."
