Nekrologer

Ingen krokodilletårer for Nelson Mandela. Af Slavoj Žižek (Information.dk, 11. december 2013). “Vi kan roligt regne med, at Mandela også døde som en bitter gammel mand – vel vidende, at han ikke for alvor havde udfordret magten.”

Tanker ved Mandelas død: Æres den, der æres bør! Af Torkil Lauesen (Modkraft/Kontradoxa, 9. december 2013). “I modsætning til Vesten ydede Cuba nemlig et aktivt og væbnet bidrag til det racistiske mindretalsstyres fald.”

Nelson Mandela – et strejftog gennem hans liv og kamp. Af Alfred Lang (Autonom Infoservice, 8. december 2013). “Nelson Mandela efterlader en enorm moralsk arv, som hans efterfølgere i ANCs korrupte top på ingen måde kan løfte.”

 Terroristen Mandela. Af Søren Søndergaard (Modkraft/Blog, 8 december 2013). “ANC havde stået på EU’s terrorliste, hvis den havde eksisteret dengang.”

Antiapartheid-aktivister: Borgerlige politikere er hyklere. Af Morten Nielsen (Globalnyt, 6. december 2013). “Det er topmålet af hykleri når flere borgerlige i dag lovpriser Nelsom Mandela. Den borgerlige fløj var jo mod handesrestriktioner mod det hvide apartheidstyre, som Mandela ønskede indført”.

R.I.P. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Af John Molyneux (Socialistisk Arbejderavis, nr. 333, 6. december 2013). “[Intet] ændrer det faktum, at Nelson Mandela, på trods af de politiske svagheder, efterlod verden som et bedre sted.”

Mandelas død er også den globale centrum-venstrefløjs endeligt. Af Brian Espensen (Politiken.dk, 6. december 2013). “I dag hyldes Mandela med den største selvfølgelighed, men man skal ikke bladre mange sider tilbage i historiebøgerne før det forholdt sig fundamentalt anderledes.”

Den danske højrefløj har haft det svært med Mandela. Af Flemming Ytzen (Politiken.dk, 6. december 2013). “Megen hyldest til frihedshelten, men danske borgerlige levede fint med apartheid.”

Sydafrikas sjæl er borte (Afrika Kontakt, 5. december 2013; online på Arbejderen.dk). “Mandela vil leve videre som inspiration og symbol for undertrykte mennesker i hele verden.”

Tema: Nelson Mandela (Arbejderen.dk, 5. december 2013): En stor humanist er død – Mandelas plads i historien.
