Your Mr Mandela also hough

he same hing. Waned o be presiden.

Go you know where your Mr Mandela

is siing now?

He's siing on his arse over here in he

isolaion cells alking o he walls.

And you're never going o see him again.

Bu wha do l hear from Warder Grikus?

He says you don' even know how

o march wo by wo...

...he says ha you...

...looked like a bunch of chimpanzees when

you were climbing off our lile boa.

Go you know he sory of he hree

chimpanzees, hey?

Wans o proes...

Wans o sudy...

Wans o rule...

All you communiss and erroriss who

come visi us on he island... all hink you are srong.

Bu do you know wha happens afer a

few years of breaking rocks?

The same as wha's going

o happen o you lo.

Before we are done wih you here...

before you leave here...

you will beg o shine my shoes...

Tha's no going o happen.

l will never happen.

Righ, fingerprins and ideniy cards... quick as you can.

So it became very cIear

that if we were going to survive,

we would have o figh he noion

ha we were passive.

We had o show he auhoriies

ha we could organise ourselves

efficienly and wih discipline.

But it was tough, especiaIIy in the quarry.

During winter, sitting down,

breaking stones,

exposed to the freezing AtIantic sea spray,

is something that is very difficuIt

to erase from memory.

Sedick, for exampIe, stiII feeIs coId today.

It's an aImost pathoIogicaI refIex.

Come, come, come, ge up, ge up, move!

You are here o work, you're no

on vacaion, move move move.

Go l look like a radio? No,

hen move when l alk!

l wan you ou of my prison, now!

Move, move, move!

It was the same routine every day.

''Kom, kom, kom.''

Grab cIothes and shoes and out.

The probIem was you had to grab any two

shoes, whether they were the same feet
