“agitate” vs “proclaim”

Herbert Ekwe-Ekwe 
Biafrans do not agitate for freedom. They proclaim their freedom. No one agitates for freedom; freedom is proclaimed! Biafrans proclaim the restoration of their independence. This right to freedom is inalienable.
(Sonny Rollins Trio, “The freedom suite” [personnel: Rollins, tenor saxophone; Oscar Pettiford, bass; Max Roach, drums; recorded: Riverside Records, New York, US, 7 March 1958])
