DISCOURS DE SMOCKEY A LA TRIBUNE OFFICIELLE DE REMISE DU PRIX «THE GWANGYU PRIZE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS » EN COREE DU SUD !
Speech for the Award Ceremony :
People of South Korea, Compatriots, artists, creators, tireless campaigners for human and women's rights, comrades, sweepers, Organizers of this event, humanists, rebellious ...
To all of you I would like to express my profound gratitude for this testimony of sympathy toward our struggle, by beginning my speech with this African proverb: "No path leads to the tree that bears no fruit"
If you have decided to open this new path before me, be assured that it will lead to the fruits that you intend for me ... This is a sign of friendship between peoples.
Be thanked for it, as another proverb says, "happiness and misfortune always have a reason even if we ignore it ". Reason why we want to stop ignoring it. We world citizens want to have the cards of our destiny in hand. Especially when the constitution of a so-called democratic state allows us. We will no longer stand still, we will govern together for the happiness of all.
Gandhi, a man of wisdom, said: "happiness is when what you say, what you think and what you do are in harmony". And as mistake never reduce the value of the accomplished struggles, let us be actors of the day after our expectations. Our fathers and the fathers of our fathers taught us the madness of beneficial horizons, for the sun-hunter always dies on the hill.
I dedicate this honor to the entire Burkinabe people for their struggle for respect of our dignity and our constitution inherited in part from our dictators who hastened to trample under their own rules and who have Learned at their own expense on 30 and 31 October 2014. Because "when the people stand up imperialism and its servants tremble".
To the African peoples who are still resisting and fighting against the tyranny of their rulers. Like what is happening in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Burundi. The nights are cold and long, but they will give way to the sunny mornings, to all these Cibals and Cibelles, my fellow fighters, without whom this adventure would not have been successfully achieved.
And as I will conclude, with the wise words of President Thomas SANKARA who was murdered in Burkina Faso on October 15, 1987: "the disease cannot be cured by pronouncing the name of the medicine”.
Thanks to the May 18 Memorial Foundation!
Victory for the people of South Korea!
Long Life to the "Gwangju prize for human rights”!
Nan Laara An Saara!
The Fight Continues!
La patrie ou la mort nous vaincrons!
Patria ô muerte venceremos (Version coreenne)!
Homeland or death, we shall conquer!
Our number is our strength!
