The days are dark, the Cape is burning and our political landscape is bleak and bereft of leaders. We despair and wonder if all is lost.
Mark Heywood’s biography Get Up! Stand Up! is an extraordinary story of a man who refused to accept the status quo and who has fought steadfastly and courageously against bureaucracy and political interference. This fight has led to lifesaving changes in health for HIV sufferers; for the right to textbooks in Limpopo and given hope and a voice to the people who live lives of quiet desperation.
Mark’s energy is extraordinary and energising and as you read his personal story told through references to poetry and music, you will be inspired to heed his call to finding a new way.
