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”

BLF Condemns Black On Black Violence Promoted By Politicians

Black First Land First (BLF) condemns the senseless black on black violence promoted by policians from parliament to the streets. The instigation of violence by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on spurious grounds feeds into the imperialist agenda to create conditions for regime change in BRICS countries just like what happened in Brazil. There are better reasons to hold President Zuma (in fact the whole ANC) accountable, even via disrupting parliament, such as his failure to act against white monopoly capital which is linked to his failure to resolve the questions of land, education, unemployment, economy, housing, poverty etcetera – with the understanding that the real fight must be directed against the main enemy being white supremacy and white monopoly capital.

BLACK FIRST LAND FIRST (BLF) SENDS REVOLUTIONARY SOLIDARITY TO THE PEOPLE OF BRAZIL AND THE WORKERS PARTY

BLACK FIRST LAND FIRST (BLF) SENDS REVOLUTIONARY SOLIDARITY TO THE PEOPLE OF BRAZIL AND THE WORKERS PARTY

Brothers and Sisters from the Workers Party (PT). We write from South Africa, a country just like yours, which has known the horrors of colonialism, imperialist racist dictatorship and an unending neo-liberal assault on the black majority.

We watched with great inspiration and with a revolutionary critical stance as your former president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (comrade Lula) undertook brave and ingenious policy decisions to move Brazil away from the status of being world number one in inequality. A status South Africa has been competing very competently with your nation for as long as it was under neo-liberalism before your party took over. We laughed at the fact that South Africa was so competent in inequality. That we were your fiercest competition.
