For my dear friend, colleague and comrade Joyce. I write this with great
sadness. Joyce fought a strong and brave battle against cancer for nearly
two years, hoping that the treatments would finally end so she could get on
with her life. This was my hope, too, because Joyce has so much ‘unfinished
business’ – the book to complete, the articles to write and her contribution
to the struggles of the land movement in Brazil to make. In a truly Freirean
sense, she was building a movement with this community of farmers, teachers
and academics. Joyce struggled against capitalism and its many violences
and oppressions – imperialism, racism, sexism, ableism. ‘Fuck them all,’ she
would say. ‘Fuck them all and let us build a better world’.
