JMPD, hands off the Revelation Church of God

JMPD, hands off the Revelation Church of God

The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) is lying when it says that members of the Revelation Church of God attacked the police. Black First Land First (BLF) visited the church yesterday in response to a report it received that the church was invaded by the JMPD. When BLF leadership arrived at the church they were briefed about the incident by the church leadership and to this end shown video material.

From the evidence, including the testimonies, presented it is clear that the church members who disarmed the police did a civil and Godly deed. In an arrogant attempt to intimidate the congregation, a metro police officer wielded his gun and shot recklessly as if he was in a movie.

BLF believes that if the JMPD members were not disarmed, a lot of people could have been injured or killed. It looks like the JMPD is given a license to forcibly and illegally evict black people from the Johannesburg City. The attack on the church must be understood in the context of the intention of the racist Democratic Alliance (DA) to keep Johannesburg (Jo’burg) white.

BLF condemns the DA for once again abusing the JMPD for its racist programe. BLF has asked the High Court for a declaratory order that Herman Mashaba is not fit and proper person to be a Mayor. Furthermore, BLF has asked the Court to declare the actions of the JMPD to be illegal. The abuse of the Metro Police by the DA must stop. BLF condemns the evictions of blacks from the Jo’burg City. Moreover, BLF condemns the evil deed of attacking worshippers who were peacefully praying.

We stand with the Revelation Church of God against the harassment by the DA controlled JMPD. Down with evictions down!

BLF supports land expropriation in Ventersdorp today

Black First Land First (BLF) will be participating in a land expropriation programe today in Ventersdorp. BLF has declared that all land must be taken back by its rightful owners. The Soweto Land Declaration calls for black people everywhere to form Land Expropriation Committees to take back the land.

Today the Thekiso family will expropriate their land (Klipgat farm) from white farmers which is located north west of Ventersdorp in the Rustenburg district of the North West. It is near the Klerkskraal Police Station. The Thekiso family has instituted a land claim in this respect but the government has instead bought the land and given it back to white farmers to continue the business.

The family explained to BLF that they had been engaging with the government for a possible solution but their efforts have been in vain. There is no way forward coming from the government.

BLF is inspiring our people to defeat fear and take back the land. The racism of Ventersdorp will end only when land has been returned to blacks.

Parents have forgotten the magic of love

Black First Land First (BLF) is shocked to hear that Tholulwazi Secondary School in Tsakane, Ekurhuleni has suspended a teenage couple following a marriage proposal where 18 year old Mduduzi Tlou, publicly proposed to his 16 year old girlfriend. This is sad and unfortunate. The two had a beautiful public engagement that went viral on social media. Now we hear that the school has chosen to suspend the lovers instead of being part of this beautiful experience. Our country is in so much pain and confusion that we have forgotten the beauty of life and the unpredictable power of Cupid.

The school could have chosen to teach about love and responsibility while celebrating the brave young lovers. The story itself is moving enough if you open your heart to the poetry of love. Mduduzi says his life was saved by his lover who took him away from destruction to the path of hope and self improvement. On his part he saved enough to buy an engagement ring of R2000. These teenagers deserve our collective praise, prayers and guidance – not condemnation.

How sad are those who don’t remember the tenderness of youthful love. The joy of the uncertain. The poetry of new discoveries. The power of two which becomes one and more. Schools must be places to unlock beauty, not smoother to death the song of life.

BLF begs the school to let the children go back to school hand in hand, freed from the fear of the unknown. Let love reign against the tyranny of helplessness which is devouring our children so mercilessly. We hope that the Member of the Executive Council (MEC) for Education in Gauteng, Mr Panyaza Lesufi, will give the school a gentle call, ask it to bow before the Gods of love and to let the children be.

BLF to lay charges of attempted murder, assault & police brutality today

BLF to lay charges of attempted murder, assault & police brutality today

Today, 29 September 2017 at 13:00, Black First Land First (BLF) will open several criminal charges against members of the South African Police Services (SAPS) at the Hillbrow Police Station .

Our movement had a successful peaceful march against the criminal conduct of KPMG yesterday in Johannesburg that concluded with us handing in our Memorandum of Demands to the auditing firm.

However, at the end of the march and while our members were inside a park in Braamfontein, the police started shooting at us with rubber bullets, suddenly and without warning. 27 members were shot, mostly at the back and at close rage, including the BLF President Andile Mngxitama and the Treasurer General Thandiswa Yaphi. Seven BLF members suffered serious bodily injuries and consequently had to be taken to hospital for medical attention.

Our members were shot after white policemen arrived in a private vehicle, being a blue BMW 320i, and instructed the police to open fire. We believe that these are agents of white monopoly capital which has captured the state. BLF is not surprised by the unprovoked attack on our movement. White monopoly capital is digging in and using everything and everyone in its power to try and break the momentum towards revolutionary outbreak.

BLF will also do the following:

1. Demand the suspension from duty of the responsible police officers until the investigations are complete.
2. Write a letter to the Minister of Police asking for action to be taken.
3. Write to the Acting Police Commissioner to seek clarity on whether the police can shoot people with rubber bullets without good cause, without signaling a warning at peaceful demonstrators, and at close range.
4. Lay a complaint of police brutality with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID).
6. Consider instituting civil claims against the SAPS and the responsible police officers.

Criminal charges will be laid against the police under the following details:

Date: 29 September 2017 (today)
Time: 13:00
Venue: Hilbrow Police Station, 1 Clarendon Place, Hillbrow, Johannesburg

BLF has given KPMG seven days to respond to our memorandum, failing which BLF will institute further action against it. We will continue to expose and fight white monopoly capital corruption. At the same time, BLF will not allow the police to be used against our people.

BLF is more than determined to push the struggle for Radical Economic Transformation to its logical conclusion.
