You can kill a revolutionary but you can't kill the revolution. - Fred Hampton

Afropunk and other sites have the quotation as “You can kill the revolutionary but, you can’t kill the revolution.” The mosaic version makes more sense, but actually it's only the second part that is normally quoted, possibly due to the song of that name by Rage Against The Machine.

Site: Treatment Rooms 2 - mural (13 memorials)

W5, 199 Acton Lane

In our rather shady photo the Fred Hampton mural can just be seen, low down, below the window on the left side of the building.  The Reichardt plaque can be seen top right of the yellow tiled wall. All the others are tiles on that wall. Some are difficult to see/photograph because the car gets in the way, and there may be others that we could not see at all.
