The BLF-SM at UKZN Howard Campus has inspired blacks only political education sessions at a time when such initiatives have been greatly contested and the university has challenged the BLF-SM’s legitimacy.
During this time where we draw from the class of 1976, and despite a host of challenges, the students at UKZN Howard Campus have drawn inspiration from, Ongkopotse Ramothibi Tiro, who said: “Some of you will be forced to sleep with hungry stomachs; some will be faced with external separation with their parents and friends; some will languish in prison. This is not new. Our forerunners have suffered all this. No struggle can come to an end without casualties. It is only through determination, absolute commitment and positive self-assertion that we shall overcome”
At this critical moment when our objective remains a free black centered socialist education in a decolonised country, and our resilience at every encounter is being tested, we take this opportunity to recognise the work done by these cadres at the UKZN Howard Campus, in registering the BLF-SM which will take the struggle for black liberation forward.
Free The Mind, Free The Land!
