BLF-SM CONDEMNS THE VIOLENCE IN HIGHER INSTITUTIONS OF LEARNING

BLF-SM CONDEMNS THE VIOLENCE IN HIGHER INSTITUTIONS OF LEARNING

The Black First Land First Student Movement (BLF-SM) condemns the violence currently waged in institutions of higher learning in the country. This comes after the traumatic few weeks where the brutal rape and murder of Uyinene highlighted the ongoing femicide and alarming number of violent happenings in our universities and against students.

Students are not safe in universities, especially female students. BLF-SM is devastated by the news of a student stabbed to death in a lecture hall in the University of Durban (DUT) and the shooting of a defenceless student by the police at the University of Zululand (UniZulu). The shooting ironically follows a protest condemning crime by a group of thieves targeting students.

Crime and crime syndicates operating in our universities cannot be treated as normal. ‘Students Are Not Safe’ and this calls for immediate action across all fronts. For how long will we ignore the reports of cars following students at night? For how long will we ignore the alarming number of kidnappings and attempted kidnappings? How long will we ignore the number of students being raped on and off campus?

This is the time where decisive leadership is needed and as such, BLF-SM calls for unity in action with all student formations in the country. The time for popularity and expediency is over. We must now unite against the scourge of femicide, rape, gender-based violence and all forms of violence crippling us at our universities.

BLF to face racist Solidarity group in court tomorrow

BLF to face racist Solidarity group in court tomorrow

Black First Land First (BLF) shall be at the Hight Court tomorrow to defend itself against the racist right wing Afriforum linked trade union called Solidarity. This group is part of a network of Afrikaner right wingers who are opposed to land being returned to blacks. They see BLF as a threat to their position and have been using the courts to to try and silence the voice of our movement.

The court case tomorrow shows beyond doubt the length at which the land thieves will go to try and contain BLF. Solidarity is in the most vile and cynical way manipulating the pain of the families who lost their loved ones to try and stop BLF from organizing and agitating for land to be returned.

The racist right wing is abusing the judiciary. They use the courts to silence their political opponents.

Watson was murdered, BLF vindicated

Watson was murdered, BLF vindicated

Media reports show that a preliminary pathology report rules out suicide in the death of Gavin Watson. Black First Land First (BLF) is not surprised. In fact we feel vindicated. We never believed that Gavin Watson was involved in an accident.

For us, it looked and smelled like a hit. All indications shows that it was a hit. If you want to know who is behind the hit, just answer this question: who is the biggest beneficiary of this murder?

In our August 26 statement, we said:

“BLF doesn’t believe that Watson died from an accident in the same way we don’t believe that Faber died from natural causes. There is a need for an independent investigation into these sudden deaths of people close to the uncovered corruption around the CR17 campaign.”

BLF is indeed vindicated.
