Hands Off Black Hammer Party

Hands Off Black Hammer Party

 BHP Minister of Defense AP (11/5/03 – 07/19/22)

Blacks First Land First (BLF) notes with righteous revolutionary rage the attack on our brothers and sisters in the Black Hammer Party (BHP). We are appalled and pained by the assasination of brother AP, the BHP’s Minister of Defense, a 19 years old revolutionary who dedicated his life to the revolution. We demand justice for brother AP.

BLF also calls for the immediate release of the Chief Leader of the BHP, Comrade Kidzo Gazi, and others. The attack on BHP by the pigs is not dissimilar to the attacks on the Black Panther Party and the Move movement. We do well to remember that brother Mumia Abu Jamal is locked up on false charges. The USA ruling party has the criminal justice system as its lynch mob against revolutionaries.

We stand with our comrades from the Black Hammer Party. Their cause is just.

Black First Land First (BLF) sends its heartfelt condolences to the family of Comrade Nosipho Hlatshwayo who has served our movement with firm commitment.

We learnt a lot from Comrade Nosipho’s vast knowledge of the indigenous systems. She hated white supremacy with all her heart and was a seasoned teacher and activist of Black Consciousness and Pan Afrikanism. The Azanian revolution has lost a soldier.

We say hamba kahle Comrade Nosipho. Go join the many other giants of the Azanian revolution like Steve Biko and Mapetla Mohapi.

Comrade Nosipho lives!!!

Hamba Kahle Comrade Busiswa Futshane

Hamba Kahle Comrade Busiswa Futshane

Black First Land First (BLF) mourns the passing of one of its committed members, Comrade Busiswa Futshane, from Khayelitsha Cape Town. She was an active member who undertook all her tasks with the required seriousness and demanded the same kind of commitment to the revolution from the rest of the membership.

Comrade Busisiwe has passed on after a lengthy period of illness. BLF recognises her selflessness. Her dream was to see black people liberated through the return of our land.

BLF sends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of our late comrade. On our part, we commit to continue struggling until the ideals she so much cherished are realized.

Parktown Boys murdered a black boy?

Parktown Boys murdered a black boy?

The news that young Enoch Mpianzi was put on a self made raft and left into a natural stream or river without a life jacket, during an orientation program in Brits, is shocking beyond belief. If this is true then it’s nothing short of gross negligence which invokes the historical race question.

Would the school put a white boy without a life jacket into such a perilous situation without the knowledge of his swimming capabilities? In fact no one should be put in harm’s way that way.

As an organization that puts black people’s lives first and in the context of the historical reality that black lives don’t matter in a society organized by white power; its hard for us not to conclude that the young boy Mpianzi died because he is black.

The Parktown Boys’ High School, where 13 year old Mpianzi was grade 8 pupil, must take full responsibility for their criminal conduct that caused his death. Their unbecoming conduct amounts to gross negligence at the very least and murder in the historical context.

If this was indeed about team building and group activity surely the team members and those in charge will notice if anyone is in trouble. There are so many other questions that this unfortunate situation poses, including:

i. Why was the absence of Mpianzi not detected by his fellow team members?
ii. Where were the lifeguards?
iii. When was the headcount done?
iv, Exactly when was it discovered that Mpianzi was missing?

Black lives must matter in South Africa. For far too long we speak in hushed tones to foster false unity and collegiality. This is costly to black people. Enough is enough!

Black First Land First (BLF) shall closely monitor this unfortunate development to ensure justice is done. This was an unnecessary loss of life. We send our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mpianzi.
