#BLF26 back in Pretoria Regional Court tomorrow on bogus charges

#BLF26 back in Pretoria Regional Court tomorrow on bogus charges

Public violence, trespassing, assault, and kidnapping are the serious false charges that twenty six Black First Land First members (also known as the #BLF26) are still facing 21 months after their arrest on Mandela Day in 2016. BLF has repeatedly reported that it is shocking that the state, that evidently doesn’t have a shred of evidence on any of the charges, persists in proceeding nonetheless.

The charges suggest a serious dispute as to what really happened on 18 July 2016 when the #BLF26 protested against the conduct of the former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, in that she was deliberately not paying attention to white corruption. To this end she did not finalize her reports on the two major matters that BLF had referred to her namely: a complaint regarding R26 billion stolen by apartheid era white capitalists which has been on her table since 2011; and another complaint of state capture by white monopoly capital involving Johann Rupert and eight other apartheid era white capitalists and politicians. Johann Rupert has since Madonsela’s departure from the Public Protectors Office, given her a prominent position under him at the University of Stellenbosch – just for protecting white interests and not bringing him to book.

While there can be no revolutionary justice via the colonial courts, the #BLF26 maintains that the complete lack of evidence on the part of the state would make it very difficult for the this court to convict them.

The #BLF26 will appear tomorrow, 09 April 2018 at 09h00 in the Pretoria Regional Court which is at the corner of Francis Baard & Sophie De Bruyn Streets in Pretoria.

BLF-SM calls on all students to support the President of Free Education

BLF-SM calls on all students to support the President of Free Education

Black First Land First Student Movement (BLF-SM) calls on all students to come out in their numbers to support former President Jacob Zuma as he faces the antiblack racist courts.

Comrade Jacob Zuma is facing lynching by white monopoly capital (WMC) for being a pro-black president; the custodian of radical economic transformation (RET); as well as for giving free education!

WMC is not happy. It has responded by making our poor parents pay for Comrade Zuma’s free education to the nation. To this end value added tax (VAT) has been increased to 15% as an appropriate punishment.

We note that we have received free education at a time when students around the country are facing the white justice of the courts. In this regard they frequently stand trial on bogus charges; are subjected to unfair trials; are generally prejudiced in their rights as accused and arrested persons; often receive shockingly harsh sentences; spend unreasonably long periods of time in police custody awaiting trail; and are even placed under house arrest for no compelling reason. Moreover, many students experience suspensions and expulsions and to this end an infringement of their right to education.

The oppressed in this context must unite and defend not only the student warriors and all revolutionaries but also all black people. As black students who have led this struggle for free education we shall continue to defend this gain and prevent its reversal. We know that key to this task is the solidarity of the oppressed. We commit ourselves towards realizing this solidarity. To this end we shall defend our president who gave us free education. The struggle continues.

Today we call on the black oppressed, particularly the students and beneficiaries of free education, to take to the streets on Friday the 6th of April 2018 in defence of Comrade Zuma at the Durban High Court where he faces empty charges concocted in service of WMC. We stand by our President of Free Education, 100%!
