68th birthday of Steve Biko

(Born 18 December 1946, King William’s Town, SA)
One of the leading figures of the African resistance to the 340 years of  pan-European conquest and occupation of South Africa, founder of the Black Consciousness Movement with that definitive, liberatory call, “[people!], you are okay as you are, begin to look upon yourself as a human being”, the spark that culminates in the mass African mobilisation of the historic 1976 Soweto Uprising, whose outcome radically transforms the balance of forces in the struggle in favour of the resistance which the occupation never overturns
