AFC Statement on the passing of Phillip Moore
“Too soon, too soon our banner draped for you” – Martin Carter
The Alliance For Change learnt with great shock and profound sadness yesterday of the passing of national hero and cultural icon Phillip Moore. The Alliance offers its deepest condolences to his family in this their moment of great loss.
Phillip Moore’s contribution to the history of the Republic is unparalleled. His mastery of art form and his intimate knowledge of the collective struggles of our people were without precedent in the field of art. In the words of our poet Laureate Martin Carter “Dear Comrade we salute you and we say death must not us thinking that we die”. Farewell Phillip, may your soul soar forever.
