“I wish to thank the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference Parliamentary Liaison Office, for the invitation to contribute to this important debate.
When I was here last year in July, sharing a platform with my brother from Namibia, Job Amupanda of the Affirmative Repossession, we discussed the difficult issue of land occupations. I had then for the first time called for the establishment of a Land First movement in SA.
Im happy to report that in August the same year we published a call officially to start our movement, Black First Land First (BLF).
This Talk is Dedicated to the class of 1976!
