Over the next few months, The Journalist will publish excerpts from Albie Sachs new book We, the People: Insights of an Activist Judge. In his latest book, the stalwart activist and former judge takes readers back to the broad-based popular foundations of the Constitution in the Freedom Charter. In his second chapter, ‘The First and Last Word- Freedom’ Sachs considers the nature of oppression during and pre-apartheid, as well as the building blocks which aided our move towards a non-racial democracy for all South Africans.

Picture this – 3 am in the morning, I had a line of fiends stretched around the corner of my block. It was in the freezing middle of January but they had camped out all night, jumping-ready to buy like there was a sale on Jordans. If you were 16 years old, in my shoes, you’d do anything to survive, right? I got good news though; I MADE IT OUT OF THE HOOD, with nothing but a laptop and an internet connection. I’m not special or lucky in any way. If I, as a convicted felon that used to scream “Free Harlem” around my block until my throat was sore, could find a way to generate a stable, consistent, reliable income online, ANYONE can!
