Mozambique by AK-47, book and hoe

mozambique kalashnikovThis is a detail from the national flag of Mozambique. What a refreshing update on the tools of people power. Lenin’s workers of the world needed hammer and sickle. In Mozambique it takes book, hoe and Kalashnikov. Education, agriculture, and the means to secure them from Capitalism. I looked for Mozambique at the Beijing opening ceremonies. The AK-47 is the antithetical symbol of the Olympics, patronized by heads of state, not coup leaders at the crest of popular uprisings.
