Dennis Brutus: you will be missed

I only heard today that one of SA's greatest rebel voices has gone quiet.

Dennis Brutus (28 November, 1924 - 26 December, 2009)

I never met him, but I read many of his poems and always listened intently when I heard him speak via footage.  Good bye fearless Dennis. If only all revolutionaries were half as brave as you, we could solve this climate quandary.
