Since the inception of the Fees Must Fall campaign, BLF-SM TUT Soshanguve has played a critical role both at their institution, as well as when the protest action confronted state power at the Union Buildings.
The heroic nature of these students has been seen as they lead in the contestation of ideas, sacrifice of academic time due to principally shutting down the institution; and still they have mustered on ensuring that the BLF-SM is registered and recognised at TUT Soshanguve. We recognise the work done by these revolutionaries, and that at this time when one’s own academic interest is considered central to ones future, these cadres remain committed to black liberation.
Learning from SASO we recognise that BLF-SM, as a student organisation, is an integral part of the movement for black liberation. We accordingly applaud the courage of our comrades who practice this black truth as we collectively build a united principled black first movement.
