BLF condemns Afriforum’s interference in black affairs

Black First Land First (BLF) has warned that the incident involving Mama Grace Mugabe is going to be highjacked by land thieves, colonialists and extreme racists. Today we learnt from the media that Afriforum – which is the representatives of land thieves in South Africa, which has not paid for reparations, which has not acknowledged genocide against black people – has offered its lawyer Gerrie Nel, who we know was also an apartheid cooperative, to provide so called legal assistance to the black child who was disciplined by Mama Grace Mugabe.

BLF is clear that this has nothing to do with justice – with so called legal assistance for the black child who was disciplined by Mama Grace Mugabe. Afriforum never said anything about black children and black people who were killed on farms such as in Coligny or about those who were stuffed in coffins, or those who were being attacked in KFC and other areas by by land thieves.

What this is about is the land question. This fight by Afriforum is to try to defend, avenge and revenge those who lost land in Zimbabwe. White people in Zimbabwe stole land there. President Mugabe took the land back and gave it to its rightful owners. This battle is about trying to punish the Zimbabwean leadership for returning land to its people.

We say again we stand with Comrade Grace Mugabe and call on all black people who are involved in this matter to find a black solution. Do not find yourself on the side of the oppressors in the conflicts that can be solved by ourselves as black people.

Izwelethu!

BLF welcomes the official opening of the African regional centre of the BRICS Development Bank

Black First Land First (BLF) welcomes the launch of the African regional centre of the BRICS Bank today by President Jacob Zuma. Our movement has been consistent in saying part of the agenda to remove President Zuma is calculated to undermine the BRICS process, particularly with regard to the establishment of the bank.

Africa and other third world countries are underdeveloped, abused, exploited and looted by the West through the IMF and World Bank, which are instruments of colonialism and imperialism. The BRICS Bank is the first step towards real independence by our people the world over.

BLF stands with Mama Grace Mugabe

BLF stands with Mama Grace Mugabe

We are black, therefore we understand how black mothers act to protect and defend their families. We were raised by black mothers who protect us against harm and often our mothers have to use punishment as a means to protect our wrong doings. As we say in African wisdom, it takes a village to raise a child. All of the children belong to all black parents. From what we gather from the media, Mama Grace Mugabe visited her sons and according to her, found them misbehaving. As a mother, she took measures which she thought were appropriate at the time to protect her sons.

As Black First Land First (BLF) we do not condone violence against black people. We condemn black on black violence, however we do not elevate the violence generated by attempts to discipline as equal to the destructive violence of white racism and white supremacy.
