BLF (KZN) commemorates Steve Biko

BLF (KZN) commemorates Steve Biko

This Saturday Black First Land First (BLF) will be commemorating Steve Bantu Biko, the revolutionary father of black consciousness, in KwaZulu Natal (KZN). You are invited!

The guiding philosophical outlook of BLF is at its core the black consciousness as principally developed by Biko. Through the Black People’s Convention (BPC) and the South African Student Organisation (SASO) – of which he was one of the founders – and other organisations that served the black community he used black consciousness (BC) to organize and mobilize the people into confrontation with the enemy towards their ultimate liberation. That struggle still continues today and is being carried forward by BLF.

BLF, armed with Biko’s BC, is able to correctly read that the primary contradiction in South Africa is white supremacy located in slavery as the first encounter; and colonialism, which is rooted in the dispossession of our land, as the second encounter. Slavery and colonialism has ensured that blacks are last in everything! The BLF has been elaborating, since its inception, just how bad things are in this country – most strikingly that we blacks are last in land ownership and to this end that more than 80% of our land is owned by a mere 35 000 white families and trusts. Moreover white monopoly capital, which is the practical operation of white supremacy on the economic plain, owns and controls 97% of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

Via BC, BLF is committed to ending white supremacy by correcting the historical injustice of land theft. BC shows us how white supremacy develops all of its other branches – that manifest as secondary contradictions – so as to institutionalise itself as a way of life.

BLF is an organization of focused BC practitioners – guided by Biko’s BC. Hence we adhere to the following principles to keep the struggle against white supremacy on the revolutionary path: land return as the pre-condition towards ending racism; blacks can’t be racist; and anti-racism struggle to be led by blacks only.

In the spirit of spreading the revolutionary legacy of Steve Biko, BLF (KZN) will honour the great pioneer with a lecture by BLF President Andile Mngxitama, this Saturday under the following details:

Date : 23 September 2017
Venue: Umkhumbane Wiggins Community Hall, Dunbar Road, Cato Manor, Ethekwini
Time : starts 10am
Topic: Remember Biko – Take back the land!

AmaBhungane provokes BLF leaders

AmaBhungane provokes BLF leaders

About an hour ago (2 August 2017) at the Cape Town International Airport, AmaBhungane’s Stefaans Brummer – the same white man that the Black First Land First (BLF) President, Comrade Mngxitama, has opened a case of intimidation against – repeated his program of provocation. BLF leaders were walking out of the airport when he blocked their way and whipped out a phone camera. He jeered at them provocatively whilst filming or pretending to do so.

The BLF leaders were understandably offended by this, more so because it is the same individual that the BLF President has opened a case against. AmaBhungane claims to be upholding the Rule of Law while at the same time it runs to court after creating an environment where the victims of their provocation are left with no option but to act in self defence.

BLF has already indicated that AmaBhungane is the spokesperson of white monopoly capital that in turn is hellbent on silencing BLF, which is the arch opponent of the same land thieves and exploiters in our country. It is clear that the provocation just experienced by the BLF leaders is designed to give credence to the vexatious urgent application to get the President of BLF arrested under the false pretext of breaching an existing court interdict.

BLF will inform the investigating officer in the case against Brummer about the continued harassment from Amabhungane. BLF is contemplating approaching the court for a retraining order against Stefaans Brummer who is acting with impunity against BLF.
