Ramaphosa stop harassing the Up Money Club stokvel

Ramaphosa stop harassing the Up Money Club stokvel

The government of Ramaphosa has decided to fight against any black empowerment effort by blacks. The attack on the successful and poverty eradicating stockvel called Up Money Club is the latest in a long list of government campaigns to destroy black people’s empowerment efforts.

The R1 million fine and freezing of the assets and money of Up Money is aimed at collapsing the stokvel and then blaming its leaders for its fall. This is evil.

How can government call a stokvel where people contribute towards buying groceries for each other a ‘get rich quick pyramid scheme’? It is clear that the National Consumer Commission and National Consumer Tribunal are mere bulldogs of the Stellenbosch mafia which is not happy with Up Money because it is an independent initiative to take people out of poverty.

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on the government to leave Up Money alone. The media reports that the NCC took action against the stokvel are shocking when no one had actually laid a complaint. This is deliberate targetting of any initiative which threatens Stellenbosch.

Right now the government has sustained losses through corruption of over R68 billion in the State Owned Entities. The big retail stores owned by the Stellenbosch mafia have unlawfully raised prices of essential goods and these so called consumer watchdogs are not interested in correcting that. They attack the vulnerable instead.

BLF calls on the National Consumer Commission and the National Consumer Tribunal to forthwith stop the harassment of Up Money, unfreeze its assets and drop the punitive R1 million unjust fine.

BLF will urgently seek a meeting with the National Consumer Commission on this matter.

We call on the government to stop the attacks on network marketing efforts by the people. The people know the risks and are willing to take them. This is just like the case with any investment that has its risks. How many JSE listed companies have collapsed?

BLF says Hands off Up Money Club. it’s a mere stokvel trying to empower its members under these difficult Covid-19 conditions.

BLF denounces SAHPRA’s delay tactics – unban Ivermectin NOW!

BLF denounces SAHPRA’s delay tactics – unban Ivermectin NOW!

The announcement by the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) that it will permit the controlled compassionate use of Ivermectin in the treatment of Covid-19, is a ploy to distract the public from demanding the use of the drug by everyone infected with the virus, free from life threatening bureaucracy.

SAHPRA‘s announcement suggests an application by healthcare professionals concerned for each patient for review by the association. This is no different from the current requirement of making individual section 21 applications for SAHPRA to grant permission to doctors to administer Ivermectin. Black First Land First (BLF) notes that SAHPRA has not even acknowledged receipt of the countless section 21 applications.

SAHPRA must stop undermining our people. Whether doctors apply via section 21 or the controlled compassionate access programme they will be unnecessarily inundated with paperwork instead of seeing to patients resulting in more lives being lost.

BLF notes that SAHPRA cautions about the lack of scientific data as a measure to deter people from using the Ivermectin. Well medical evidence shows that the downside to using Ivermectin is minimal and the benefits invaluable. You lose nothing except hope if it doesn’t work on you and this is evidently 1 in 5000. And if it works it will save lives and prevent disability in the millions.

BLF demands that SAHPRA stops acting as agents of the Gates foundation in forcing their Covid-19 vaccines on the nation instead of making Ivermectin which is cheap, safe and accessible available to the public.

We call on SAHPRA to approve Ivermectin for human use on parasites without delay. It is where its effectiveness and safety data are indisputable. This would effectively permit the medical profession to use the medication off-label both ethically and legally without fear of being prosecuted. This is already done in many countries including the US and Australia. The downside is so minimal, the bureaucracy is unnecessary.

No one needs to die if we have Ivermectin!

Stop Covid-19 deaths, give us ivermectin Now!

Stop Covid-19 deaths, give us ivermectin Now!

The government of Cyril Ramaphosa is killing South Africans for profits. The government knows that there is a cheap safe and affordable medicine against the deadly Covid-19 virus. The medicine to defeat Covid-19 which originates from Japan and is widely used the world-over, is called ivermectin.

Research shows that ivermectin can kill SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic, within 2 days. The South African government is pushing Covid-19 vaccines because these will enrich the friends of President Ramaphosa who are also his donors. It is clear that the strategy is to get as many people as possible killed by Covid-19 so that the nation is driven into a panic acceptance of the Covid-19 vaccines.

Black First Land First (BLF) suspects that the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) is complicit with the government in creating panic through death to force-feed the nation Covid-19 vaccines. Why is SAHPRA not clearing ivermectin so that our people’s lives are saved. The spokesperson of SAHPRA is openly lying about the clinical clearance of ivermectin, which is described by doctors who prescribe it as a wonder medicine.

BLF calls on the Minister of Health, Dr Mkhize, to stop the expensive and unsafe Covid-19 vaccines and rather immediately make ivermectin available to our people. It is cheap and safe. We also call on SAHPRA to immediately clear ivermectin to be used in SA.

BLF is opposed to the Covid-19 vaccines. There are safer, cheaper and effective ways to fight Covid-19. These are blocked because of profits.

BLF is in consultation with a variety of stakeholders to launch a campaign against the Covid-19 vaccines. We say NO to Covid-19 vaccines, and YES to ivermectin!

BLF condemns Ramaphosa police for violence against Artists

BLF condemns Ramaphosa police for violence against Artists

BLF condemns in the strongest possible terms the police brutality against peaceful protestors in KZN. Artists have been starved by Ramaphosa as he has awarded all the covid19 relief funds to his White Monopoly Capital friends. What must the artists eat?

Community leaders in black communities across SA have highlighted the increasing heavy-handed approach adopted by police under the Ramaphosa administration towards black protesters. BLF notes that while Ramaphosa has allowed white farmers to close national roads without shooting them with rubber bullets, protesting black artists are attacked by the police just like the Marikana workers.

BLF stands with the artists. We ask where is the R500 billion?
