Malema and Zille march for London

Malema and Zille march for London

Black First Land First (BLF) warns our people against the alliance of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and the Democratic Alliance (DA) against Radical Economic Transformation (RET). The so called “Zuma Must Fall” campaign was planned and funded by British imperialism under the direction of Lord Robin Renwick who is tasked by the British Crown to remove President Zuma from office via a combination of mass action and the capturing of parliament as well as the judiciary. The white owned media’s role is to pump up the propaganda that the real enemy of progress is not the land thieves and white monopoly capital, but rather President Zuma and the Guptas.

The plan is to try and remove President Zuma before his term ends and to replace him with Cyril Ramaphosa who has shown his commitment to the British Crown and white monopoly capital by ordering the killing of workers in Marikana. It must be remembered that Ramaphosa killed workers in Marikana for a British firm called Lonmin which has not asked for forgiveness nor paid reparations.

The so called court application for a “secrete ballot” is another ploy to try and create conditions conducive for the British sponsored coup. It’s a known fact that the Speaker of Parliament has a discretion to order a secret ballot. The court order sought serves merely as propaganda for the coup. The EFF, DA and United Democratic Movement (UDM) do not believe in the secret ballot. To this end provision is made in each of their respective constitutions that should any of their Members of Parliament vote against the party position, that member shall be expelled from that party – but these parties want a secret ballot for the African National Congress (ANC). The white owned media has not asked, “why do you want something for the ANC which you don’t want for your own party?”

The answer to the question is that Johann Rupert and London have bought some ANC Members of Parliament to vote with the opposition parties who are themselves in the pocket of Johann Rupert and Lord Robin Renwick. These bought ANC Members of Parliament can only carry out the wishes of London in secret.

Today’s court application is nothing but part of the psychological warfare so as to create an atmosphere to push the coup propaganda in order to give the bought ANC Members of Parliament a chance to fulfill the common mandate of London, which both the DA and EFF supports.

They want Zuma out because he is calling for Land Expropriation Without Compensation and for Radical Economic Transformation. The removal of Pravin Gordhan has scared London and white monopoly capital. They want Zuma gone as of yesterday and will spare no effort in the planning and execution of the coup. Now they are using the court system to legitimise the London coup. The court application was not necessary. The Speaker of Parliament has the power to order a secret ballot – so why abuse the process of the court?

A secret ballot is a mechanism of corruption in a parliamentary system governed by proportional representation. In fact a secret ballot is bad for parliament, full stop! The electorate wants to know how its representatives voted and why. Forcing parliament to use the method of a secret ballot would serve to facilitate the capture of the Legislature by Johann Rupert and Lord Robin Renwick.

Today when you see Julius Malema march side by side with Helen Zille or her poodle, Mmusi Maimane, you must know they are carrying out the London agenda.

BLF says:

– “NO to the London agenda!”
– “Hands off Zuma, we want Economic Liberation NOW!”.

On maintaining good political health of the movement

Message from the National Secretary for Political Education

We are currently experiencing the intensification of the global war for the consolidation of white imperialist power. In this context imperialism is sharpening its efforts to effect regime change in the country by removing the pro BRICS agenda President Zuma and replacing him with a puppet of imperialism, Cyril Ramaphosa. In this regard we have witnessed how opposition parties and civil society entities, in collaboration with imperialism, have tried to create a constitutional crisis in the country to lead it into paralysis. To this end Black First Land First (BLF) has counseled that the best form of defence is attack – hence its two pronged response to destroy the enemy via the campaigns #HandsOffZumaEconomicLiberationNow and #FightImperialismTakeBackTheLand.

On President Zuma and Land expropriation

President Zuma has made the most important, the most significant pronouncement since 1994 – expropriation of land without compensation. If we get the  land question right, we can become a people again.

Julius Malema says “let’s unite, here’s our 6%, let’s expropriated land without compensation”. There was a chance. It doesn’t matter what his motives are.

We know that EFF knew what the intention of Mthembu and Hannekom  was. They colluded with them to play political games and sabotage the President.  Continue reading “Notes on the ANN 7 interview of National Convener, Andile Mngxitama on 4 March 2017”

MARCH TO SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK ON 17 FEBRUARY 2017: BLF INVITATION

MARCH TO SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK ON 17 FEBRUARY 2017: BLF INVITATION

In 1997, CIEX a private investigations company was commissioned by the government to investigate apartheid era crime and corruption. The report submitted to former President Thabo Mbeki suggested that billions were stolen by white capital of which R26 billion is recoverable immediately. 

In August 2011 the former Public Protector indicated that she would conduct investigations into the matter of the stolen R26 billion. Black First Land First (BLF) has since 7 September 2015 been engaged in direct action to get the Public Protector to finalise her report in this respect. 

Despite the fact the three investigations – Ciex, Heath and the Davis Panel of Experts – had found that ABSA had illegally benefitted from certain lifeboats obtained from SARB, the previous Public Protector did not do anything meaningful in this respect and she  eventually vacated her office at the end of her tenure. After a successful meeting with BLF on the issue, the new Public Protector indicated in her preliminary report that ABSA had illegally benefitted in the amount of R3.2 billion from lifeboats obtained from SARB during the apartheid era. This finding by the Public Protector has vindicated BLF. This means that ABSA’s wrongdoings is now supported by four reports, two of which – Ciex report and the Public Protector’s preliminary report – calling for ABSA to pay back the money. 

BLF has subsequently planned a new series of actions which is aimed at raising awareness about how ABSA illegally benefitted from the nation’s money.  

On 28 January, BLF successfully held nationwide pickets at 50 ABSA outlets. This kick started the movement’s rolling protest action against ABSA to force it to pay back the money. This was followed, on the evening of Saturday 28 January, by a successful public dialogue on “why must ABSA pay back the money”.

BLF will continue to intensify its actions against ABSA until it pays back the money.

BLF is calling on the nation, progressive organisations, the church, revolutionary people’s movements, the revolutionary students and individuals to join the call for ABSA to pay back the money! We invite you to join us under the following details:

Date: 17 February 2017 
Event: March to the South African Reserve Bank 
Assembly Point: Church Square, Tshwane
Time: 10:00
Contact Person: Khumbu Bavu (National Coordinator, BLF) 
Cell: 062 695 4985
Email: khumbubavu@gmail.com

SARB has not done anything to protect the nation’s assets stolen by white capital. Also  successive governors of SARB have defended white capital. The current leadership of SARB is beholden to the white owned banks and capital and therefore there is little reason to think that they will cooperate with the Public Protector in a manner that would help to return our stolen billions! The purpose of the march to SARB is to compel ABSA to pay back the money. 

Your presence will be greatly appreciated. BLF will not stop until ABSA pays back the money which in turn must be used towards realizing Fees Must Fall and empowering the unemployed youth.
