I came across this quote years ago and can't find anything online about who might have said it, the quote itself or any of its context. When an Marxist (Maoist?) insurrectionary group somewhere in South America knew they were all certain to die the next day at the hands of government forces, their leader gave a stirring speech that ended with something like:
If there is no place for us in this world then a new world must be made.
Ring any bells?
