“We, The People” Limited Edition T-shirt
“We, the People” so begins the Preamble of one of the world’s most respected and celebrated constitutions – our Constitution. Our highest law is in the name of the people because without the people we would not have a Constitution. Without the united efforts of generations and generations of not only South Africans but the entire continent and the world, we would not have made it through the darkest chapters of history. The Preamble to our Constitution is a collective pact made in the name of all South Africans declaring that ours is a journey towards the realisation of the equal, just, and free society envisioned by our Constitution. It is a journey that none of us can walk alone. In the spirit of ubuntu, our own indigenous wisdom tells us that a person cannot exist without other people. At a moment of our greatest division we were able to come together to express our highest ideals in one voice as one nation through our hard-won Constitution. Again, South Africa faces another challenging moment as we contemplate the present and the future as defined by a pandemic. Looking back at our history it is evidence that we have survived greater threats before when we all act collectively and in service of higher ideals than our own personal circumstances. The journey towards creatively transforming our country was marked by the signing of our Constitution in 1996 after decades and decades of battle. In order to survive this current moment and to continue the creative transformation of our country, we are reminded by the Constitution that it is We, the People who are the real history makers. Today we launch the We, the People t-shirts as a call to our citizenry and the world that we stand United in our Diversity to once again to do the seemingly impossible. T-shirts have long been a tool of mass resistance in our country. Wearing this t-shirt signifies our sense of responsibility to continue the tradition of contributing to a cause bigger than ourselves.
