Black First Land First (BLF) will return to the Johannesburg Central Magistrate’s Court tomorrow morning to face both the racist Lucy Strydom and the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC). Strydom asked the SAHRC to assist get in getting BLF banned from contesting the 2019 national government elections. Shockingly, the SAHRC has not just accepted the bogus complaint, but has also taken up the case as its own and made an application to have BLF banned.
Black First Land First (BLF) is appalled by how the leadership and members of our movement were treated at the Zondo Commission.
The Zondo Commission is said to be open to and in the interest of ordinary South Africans, yet those working for the commission, including the South African Police Services (SAPS) and law enforcement, denied BLF members entry to the hearings.
Black First Land First (BLF) welcomes the Constitutional Court ruling to legalise the usage of marijuana. BLF has called for the liberation of the herb that has long been used for spiritual, medicinal and recreational use.
Black First Land First (BLF) condemns with the strongest possible terms the hooliganism displayed by the CEO of the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) yesterday. BLF was at the office of the Commission for a mediation session as per a court order. When BLF arrived we were shocked to find that the complainant, Lucy Strydom, was not in attendance but was in fact represented by the Commission.
BLF asked how the Commission can represent the complainant and then also chair the mediation session? There was no satisfactory explanation. BLF proposed a more objective process of mediation but the Commission was too quick to threaten court action knowing very well that they had denied BLF legal fees whilst they use state resources to support the racist Strydom.
