Black First Land First (BLF) joins the rest of the progressive forces of the world in standing with our beloved Evo Morales and rejecting the U.S. backed coup to replace him with a right-wing government. The coup is a crime against the Bolivian people.

We call on all of Bolivia’s political forces, including the people and their leaders, to act with responsibility in navigating the transition to the second elections, and deciding on the country’s future.

We echo the solidarity messages of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, in “categorically condemn(ing) the consummated coup d’etat against the brother president Evo”; as well as the call of the Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel for “the world to mobilize for the life and freedom of Evo”

Long live the Bolivian People!

BLF will not appeal decision of biased, hostile Electoral Court

BLF will not appeal decision of biased, hostile Electoral Court

Today our movement received notice from the Electoral Court in Bloemfontein that leave to appeal the deregistration of our movement has been denied. Black First Land First (BLF) has been deregistered by the Electoral Commission of South Africa (ECSA) on the demand of the racist extreme right-wing organization called Freedom Front Plus (FF+). We expected this outcome. BLF will be holding a Special Policy Conference on the 30th of November this year in Durban to chart the way forward.

The Electoral Court, just like most of the other courts having judicial authority in South Africa (SA), has been openly hostile and biased against BLF. Our movement has lost all trust in the entire justice system of this country. We shall not be subjecting ourselves to the kangaroo courts of white supremacy any further. We won’t appeal the decision of the Electoral Court.

BLF is aware that the entire white establishment is terrified of the black agenda that we represent. Land thieves and white monopoly capital (WMC) are doing everything to keep BLF out of the formal political arena. This is so because they know that only BLF can force the African National Congress (ANC) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to serve black people and end white rule in SA. BLF will not make the task of banning us from the poltical arena easy. This is war!

Let the historical record reflect that BLF was the first movement to be banned since the ruse of majority rule. Let the record furthemore reflect that the banning order was imposed on BLF on the instigation of a right-wing, whites only, political organization of land thieves – the FF+.

Black people now know that in SA blackness is outlawed. BLF is a revolutionary movement which will continue to fight until blacks are truly free.

BLF also notes that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has revived the false charges against the BLF 26. This is part of the general harassment of our movement through the entire justice system of this country.

The Special Policy Conference shall provide a way forward for our movement. The struggle continues by any means necessary!

Land or death!

BLF wishes Comrade Ace Magashule a happy birthday

Black First Land First (BLF) says happy birthday to the Secretary General of the African National Congress (ANC). Our movement recognizes Comrade Ace as one of the key proponents of Radical Economic Transformation (RET). This explains the relentless slander perpetuated against him by the White Monopoly Capital (WMC) owned and controlled media.

As BLF we recognize that WMC is the primary enemy and therefore all those who come under its attack are, by that fact alone, our comrades. Comrade Ace has actively taken a stand for RET and WMC has systematically responded in protection of its own interests.

BLF opposes whatever the enemy supports and supports whatever the enemy opposes.

On our part we wish Cde Ace many more years. We also commit to labour for the realisation of RET as a minimum program to unite all the progressive peoples and organizations in a non partisan way. Principled unity in action, based on a minimum program, shall help advance the course of real transformation.

As we celebrate the birthday of Cde Ace, we wish for a complete defeat and destruction of the Stellenbosch inspired so called ‘New Dawn’ which is a program to surrender the country to the enemy.

Happy birthday Comrade SG!

Land or Death!
