“The Canadian Arab Federation offers condolences on the passing away of Nelson Mandela”
It is with deep sadness and regret that we learn of the passing of Nelson Mandela.
Mandela, in his personification of social justice and his selfless determination to reconceptualise how the world understood the meaning of “revolution”, has built a legacy based on truth and justice that will live on for generations to come.
Nelson Mandela spoke out courageously not only against the apartheid regime in South Africa, but also against the injustices committed against the Palestinian people; openly in solidarity with the Palestinian cause and consistently calling for the right to self-determination and statehood for the Palestinian people.
The Canadian Arab Federation extends its deepest condolences to Mr. Mandela’s family, South Africa and the world at large for losing one of the most inspirational and revolutionary advocates of social justice and peace.
