BLF says #HandsOffTumiMorake!

Black First Land First (BLF) recognizes the vicious racist attack on comedian and radio host, Tumi Morake, following her correct articulation that white squabbles amongst each other are not the concern of the black majority, particularly while we remain the landless oppressed.

Amongst the white community, the “verkramptes” and the “verligters” have always existed and it is of no importance for us as a black landless majority to discuss which strategy whites should implement to maintain us as an oppressed people.

BLF notes the threats upon Morake and her family by white listeners, including the call for her to be disciplined by Jacaranda FM and even for her to leave “their country”. BLF recognizes that Eric Barnard, the CEO of Eric Barnard Furnishers has headed up this racist attack on Morake.

BLF rejects the “Peoples Tribunal on Economic Crime in South Africa”

Black First Land First (BLF) rejects what is referred to as the “Peoples Tribunal on Economic Crime in South Africa” with the highest contempt it deserves.

BLF locates this farce of a tribunal as a public lynching of black people in the name of regime change, by neoliberal organisations, such as Right2Know (R2K), South African Council of Churches (SACC) and Corruption Watch, amongst others. These organisations serve the same corrupt agenda of white land thieves like Johann Rupert.

All these white-run “civil society” organisations hold hands with land thieves under the banner of SaveSA, funded and marshalled by the likes of Rupert, Maria Ramos and the Rothschilds.

Can black people trust those who benefit from the capturing of the state, to deliver people’s justice? The answer is no!

These neoliberal organisations have not once come out and told ABSA CEO, Ramos, to pay back the money, in line with the public protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s findings which showed ABSA unduly benefited over R3 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) at the latter stages of apartheid.

Have these supposed ‘saviors’ spoken against the banking scandal that saw 17 banks found guilty of corruption by the Competition Commission?

What moral high ground does the SACC possess, when they have been silent on the victimization of the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) by Rupert-controlled racist white media who have consistently defamed and mocked ZCC, in particular Bishop Barnabas Lekganyane?

These are corrupt organisations, and are nothing more than a vehicle to bring about regime change, and to stop black people from uniting for land return, and achieving radical economic transformation.

State Capture exists, and it’s white people who have captured the state, stolen our land, enslaved our people and destroyed our ways of governance, our religions and culture!

BLF rejects this tribunal as a public lynching of black people and calls on the black majority to do the same.

Minister Mbalula meet the real victims, not the perpetrators (AgriSA)

Black First Land First (BLF) is concerned that the Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, is today meeting those who stole our land, the main perpetrators of violence on farms, the white farmers organised under AgriSA.

The real victims of rural areas lack of safety are farm workers who remain vulnerable, exposed and are murdered everyday with no consequences. We call upon the minister to immediately engage farm worker organisations and organisations such as BLF who are working intandem with the interest of farm workers.

We say to Minister Mbalula, you are meeting the perpetrators not the victims of rural crime, violence and human rights abuses.

BLF to oppose Afriforum and DA on Grace Mugabe case

Black First Land First (BLF) has briefed its lawyers to prepare an application to oppose the racist Democratic Alliance (DA) and Afriforum on their case against Zimbabwe’s First Lady, Grace Mugabe. BLF notes that the colonial organisations, DA and Afriforum, have ganged up against comrade Grace Mugabe. The case has nothing to do with defending the rights of anyone. Since when do colonialists care for the rights of black people?

If Afriforum and DA are serious about the rights of black people, can they start with returning the stolen land?

BLF notes that the court application to revoke the diplomatic immunity granted Mugabe is about attacking the land revolution and a desperate ploy by land thieves to try avenge their kith and kin who lost land in Zimbabwe.
