We Shall Not Give Up The Fight

This traditional song came from the freedom movement of South Africa against apartheid. It expresses the determination to stay united in the struggle for freedom and the belief in final victory. We sing an additional verse in Australia that says “Refugees are welcome here, let’s be openhearted”, to express our support for refugees who suffer lives of great difficulty.

Lyrics

We shall not give up the fight
We have only started
We have only started
We have only started

Refugees are welcome here
Let’s be open-hearted
Let’s be open-hearted
Let’s be open-hearted

Together we’ll have victory
Hand holding hand
Hand holding hand
Hand holding hand
