The Black First Land First Movement (BLF) Political Education Induction Course is driven by two considerations – firstly, Thomas Sankara’s warning that, “a soldier without political education is a potential criminal” and secondly, Frantz Fanon’s teachings that “[t]he political education of the masses proposes not to treat the masses as children but to make adults of them.”
Understanding what BLF stands for is important to building revolutionary consciousness regarding the aims and objectives of the movement. To pass the Political Education Induction Course every BLF member must be able to answer the following questions in her/his own words:
1. What is the name of the organisation you have applied to join?
2. What is the short name of the organisation?
3. Name the political philosophy/ideology of the BLF?
4. What is Pan Afrikanism?
5. What is Black Consciousness?
6. What is socialism?
7. What is imperialism?
8. What are the main demands of the Peoples Manifesto?
9. Who must sign the “Sankara Oath”?
10. If a Member of Parliament, or a Public Servant does not uphold the “Sankara Oath”, what would happen to her/him?
11. Who/what is the main enemy of black people?
12. Why does the BLF say that the ANC is the “body guard” of white interests?
13. Who can join BLF?
Furthermore, members are expected to study the content of the BLF Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and to this end be in a position to answer the questions posed therein.
