George Bizos has gone to meet his comrades.
So many heroes gone. Maybe we are being called to be our own heroes because wow… This is tough. #RIPGeorgeBizos

The consolation to his family is that he reached the ripe old age of 92 when it could have been very different, remember he could have been easily assassinated or made to “disappear”for his anti-racist anti-apartheid activities, as that happened to our other brave heroes like him
