Amandla! Publishers aims to build an open non-sectarian space wherein perspectives on the left can be analysed, discussed and debated. Voices on the left are needed to comment on the current situation in our country, the continent and the world. Amandla! is a contribution to the creation of a wide platform for contesting public space, discourse and debate from rigorous and non-sectarian left perspectives Apart from needing a voice of the left commenting on the current situation, a major objective of Amandla! is to contribute to facilitate greater collaboration between broad sections of the left, activists and intellectuals from different traditions and regions of the country.
