'A luta continua' is a phrase often used by revered revolutionary leader Xanana Gusmao, whose speeches have inspired the text of this work. It refers to the struggle the East Timorese have endured to achieve independence. But they are a resilient people who eagerly look forward to a secure future. Their strength is reflected in the Wesley-Smith brothers' composition: the struggle continues, with determination, optimism and hope.
