"Such a society should never allow again that there should be prisoners of conscience nor that any person's human right should be violated."
The reason I liked this quote the most was because i felt like it did the best job of wrapping up Mandela's speech, or rather paraphrasing it. What many people had attempted, wanted or desired was so easily put into words of regret after it was over.
"On 7 November 1962, Nelson Mandela was convicted and sentenced to five years in prison for leaving the country illegally and inciting workers to strike."
This year on November 7th has marked 50 years since Mandela was sentenced.
