From my article in The Sunday Times today:
The call for national unity after her death is the ultimate insult. It is another characteristic attempt to plaster over the wounds she worked so hard to reveal, and for which she ended up giving her life. This is not the time to think like bees, circling inside a hive and controlled by a queen bee who would think for us all. This is the time to assert our individual personalities. A time to voice our fear, anger, hope and uniqueness to show the powerful that we can think for ourselves.
National unity that rests on forgiveness without truth, acceptance without confrontation, silence without thought, is nothing but submission to the intimidation that exploits our national weakness to perpetuate the power of those who would not give it up.
