BLF takes note of complaints about fly-by-night recruitment agencies and job scams

Black First Land First (BLF) receives many complaints from black people who have been exploited through fly-by-night recruitment agencies operating in big metros.

These fake recruitment agencies operate on social media platforms using job advertisements. The unsuspecting victims call the numbers and are then invited to the offices of these con artists.

BLF rejects the white monopoly capital budget speech

The turn to neoliberalism is in full swing in South Africa. The budget speech today clearly shows this. Malusi Gigaba delivered a proper “New Deal” budget which is anti-Radical Economic Transformation (RET). In order to thank white monopoly capital for the help in ousting President Jacob Zuma, Gigaba and Cyril Ramaphosa taxed the poor and left corporate tax unchanged.

Black First Land First (BLF) has been saying that the program of the Ramaphosa government is based on the “New Deal” and not RET. When they mention RET, it is merely to fool the people. Ramaphosa talks RET a little and walks a lot of New Deal. There is no doubt that Ramaphosa is defying the African National Congress (ANC) 54th conference resolutions.

BLF-WC calls for a Radical Economic Transformation (RET) Budget Speech!

Black First Land First Western Cape (BLF-WC) calls on the Minister of Finance, Malusi Gigaba, to reject London and Skele
mbosch and endorse a Radical Economic Transformation (RET) budget!

The coup that removed Jacob Zuma as President of the Republic of South Africa is now complete. The Mining Charter has been recalled by the President of White Monopoly Capital, Cyril Ramaphosa. The call for the privatisation of State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) is louder. Gigaba’s future hangs by a thread.

Black life under a white economy is one of poverty, dispossession and oppression. We need courage and commitment to implement Radical Economic Transformation, for black liberation now!

Racist High Court absolves ABSA’s corruption

The South African judiciary is untransformed and openly serves the interests of white monopoly capital. The Pretoria High Court’s decision today to set aside the Public Protector’s Bankorp-CIEX report (where ABSA was ordered to pay R1,125 billion), is a textbook example of how the judiciary is in the pockets of white monopoly capital. The effect of the ruling is that ABSA will not pay back the money it stole from the people of South Africa. This ruling shows more clearly that the talk of fighting corruption is a ruse to legitimise the looting of white monopoly capital.

That ABSA, Johann Rupert and his father Anton, Daimler Chrysler, Nedbank and Armscor stole over R26 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is not a matter of conjecture but fact. Over three investigations have come to the same conclusions. The judgment relies on obtuse and racist reasoning to absolve ABSA, and by extension all white monopoly capital looters who continue to loot.
