POSTCARDS FROM THE ROAD – Battle Zone on the road to Sumbe by Don Pinnock

It says: “UNITA. We want. Because.” Was there more below? I didn’t check, didn’t even see the wall, fascinated by the bullet holes. Was the writer on the far wall the defender and the near wall the victor? The area was decimated by slavers for hundreds of years, then by Portuguese colonial masters. What they wanted was freedom and there was no need to qualify “because”.
