    Anton De Kom. Little known Freedom fighter who changed a nation


    Anton De Kom can bast be described as the conscious of our nation Suriname.

    Adek as we call him in Suriname, wrote a vigorous indictment of the Dutch colonial domination and exploitation of Suriname in 1934. His sentiment no doubt will be familiar to all the colonial countries at the time because the policies were very identical towards the non European population, whether they be of African descent or indigenous Indians.

    I translated part of his foreword to his book “Wij Slaven Van Suriname”(Us Slaves of Suriname), from Dutch, but unfortunately I cannot do it justice. De Kom was a very skilled writer. But hopefully you will get the gist of his message.
