    I was privileged to know Denis – and he helped me with support in housing and education in IvoryPark Township. He was a wonderful person – serene I felt based on his total conviction and the experience he had endured in fighting for justice and truth. It was humbling and inspiring to know such a wonderful human being. A fighter to the end.

    It’s produced by the excellent Double Down News – must give them credit.

    The one by David Graeber is also excellent – have you not covered this?

    What a beautiful interview. it was so good to see our Jeremy back in relaxed mode unfettered by his suit! Goldberg was a truly special human being. I remember meeting him manning an ANC Christmas stall as if he was no more than a regular volunteer and because I was so ignorant at the time of his full role in the struggle I imagined that was just who he was. I laughed and cried through the interview. Tears of admiration and awe for people of such courage, tears of laughter at the Bengali grandmother who terrified Mandela!
    Andrew Feinstein too is a man of great honour. Shadow World is a must read book and documentary.
