Black First Land First (BLF) salutes the stunning victory of the landless people of Hamanskraal who have through their principled militant struggle forced the Provincial Chairperson of the ruling party to concede their land rights. The people of Hamanskraal have shown that the land belongs to the people and that land occupations is the only viable means to access land.
The people of Hamanskraal must also be commended for rejecting political hyenas who wanted to cash in on their struggle like they have done with Marikana.
The victory of Hamanskraal shows that the political elite is currently very vulnerable because it is elections time. The politicians are desperate for votes. It’s time for the landless across the country to occupy land not just for housing but also land in thr hands of land thieves otherwise known as white farmers. The politicians at this time will not be too quick to call the police. Let’s put pressure on white land owners because the only way to take back the land is through land occupations.
All land in SA was stolen from black people and therefore any black person who needs land must occupy it. BLF calls on the landless to organise and occupy! Land before votes, that’s the answer to landlessness. Elections time is land occupations time!
