Remember Brother Micah X Johnson!

Remember Brother Micah X Johnson!

Message from the BLF President

Last year Black First Land First (BLF) resolved that Brother Micah Xavier Johnson a Martyr of black liberation the world over. Today, exactly one year after he was killed by the para military white supremacist US police force, we call on all black people to start a process of remembering our brother whose actions are the highest form of love for black people. He chose to die for us. He is above all of us who are too scared to liberate ourselves from the plantation by any means necessary.

We note that the global black organizations who are praised for resistance by the white world, continue to distance themselves from the brave black warrior. BLF embraces our brother, Micah X Johnson, who we regard as a revolutionary holy saint. His love for black people is exemplary and inspirational. We love you Brother Micah X Johnson.
BLF repeats its call to our people everywhere to honor Brother Micah Xavier Johnson. Lets observe a moment of silence while raising our black power fists. Lets raise our voices in loud salutations with the words, “Black Power! Long live the spirit of Micah Xavier Johnson, long live!”.

All BLF meetings, protests actions and other events shall in this month open with a moment of silence for Brother Micah. We ask all BLF members, and indeed all our people, to display images of Michah X Johnson on social media to ensure that we never forget him and never forgive those who took his life.

Micah X Johnson, soldier who died with his boots on so that we blacks can breathe! We shall never forget!

BLF CALLS FOR NATIONAL SHUTDOWN UNTIL VUSI OLDMAN MAHLANGU IS RELEASED AND ALL STUDENT/WORKER DEMANDS ARE MET

BLF CALLS FOR NATIONAL SHUTDOWN UNTIL VUSI OLDMAN MAHLANGU IS RELEASED AND ALL STUDENT/WORKER DEMANDS ARE MET

Black First Land First condemns the apartheid tactics employed by white monopoly capital and its agents, the ANC government, to disrupt the struggle for insourcing, free black centered socialist education and a decolonized society. The disappearance of Vusi Oldman Mahlangu, hits at a time when the “End Outsourcing Campaign” has struck at the heart of racist capitalist exploitation within institutions of higher learning.

From the onset of the Fees Must Fall struggle we have seen the ANC government collude with white capital to sabotage the fight for black people’s dignity. This is reminiscent of their scuppering of movements for liberation in the 80s and early 90s, and speaks to the anti-black self-hating nature of the political party and its members.

To date, students and workers have been shot, kidnapped, threatened, teargassed, arrested, imprisoned, suspended, interdicted, expelled, and/or excluded from the university as a direct result of the ANC government’s collusion with white capital as defenders of white-power.

The resilience of the students and workers has been remarkable, and at a time where our resolve is being tested more than ever, we must stand firm. The duty of the youth remains the achievement of free black-centred socialist education, insourcing, land return and black liberation within the context of decolonizing everything by any means necessary.

To this end BLF calls for a NATIONAL SHUTDOWN of all institutions of higher learning, by any means necessary, until the following are achieved:

The unconditional release of Vusi Mahlangu and all else who have been taken, NOW!

Insourcing of all workers!

A living wage with full institution of higher learning benefits!

Free black centered socialist education!

Unconditional dropping of all charges, interdicts, suspensions, cancellations and expulsions!

Unconditional release of all arrested and detained students!

BLF SUPPORTS TUT STUDENTS STRUGGLE

BLF SUPPORTS TUT STUDENTS STRUGGLE

Our movement Black First Land First (BLF) fully supports the students struggle of Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).

The students struggle is just and it’s demands reasonable. For two weeks the students were engaged in peaceful protest for free education and an end to the evil outsourcing process. For two weeks the TUT management responded with repression (bringing armed private security onto campus and suspending student leaders), with divide and rule tactics (getting SASCO to abandon the students and join management just like the homeland leaders under apartheid) and with indifference (non compliance with students demands).

BLACK FIRST LAND FIRST CALLS ON THE VICE CHANCELLOR PROFESSOR L.R.VAN STRADEN OF TUT SOSHANGUVE TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF THE STUDENTS AND WORKERS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

BLACK FIRST LAND FIRST CALLS ON THE VICE CHANCELLOR PROFESSOR L.R.VAN STRADEN OF TUT SOSHANGUVE TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF THE STUDENTS AND WORKERS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

Dear Prof van Straden

I write to you mandated by the joint leadership structures of the TUT SRC who are engaged in the struggle for free education and an end to outsourcing in your university. We met last night (Friday, 04 March) up to this morning. We were able to address two mass meetings on Soshanguve campuses of TUT in this period. The leaders of PASMA, SADESMO, EFF and SCO all engaged us with the view of bringing attention to the serious situations students are faced with and the totally unhelpful response from you and the university management. We were shocked to learn that you have suspended the authentic leaders of the students and basically refused to talk to the SRC. We were shocked to learn that you have decided to divide the student leadership by turning SASCO into prefects who represent not the wishes and interests of students, but rather those of management.
