Kallie Kriel to answer charges of hate speech and racism laid by BLF tomorrow

The Equality Court sitting at the Johannesburg Magistrate Court will tomorrow hear arguments on the complaint of Black First Land First (BLF) against the racist Kallie Kriel of Afriforum.

Kriel, representing the racist organization called Afriforum, will answer to a charge of hate speech amounting to racism. He is in clear contravention of section 10 of the Equality Act in that he committed hate speech by saying that Apartheid was not a crime against humanity. This is contrary to the established international law which has been been legislated upon by South Africa (SA). Kriel has not only denied that apartheid is a crime against humanity, but he has also gone further to defend his racist, hurtful, harmful, utterances of hatred.

Afriforum does not hide the fact that it’s a pro apartheid organization. Regarding it’s mission it says, “Afriforum works to ensure that the basic prerequisites for the existance of Afrikaners are met; by acting as a credible Afrikaner interest organization…”. Moreover, it identifies itself as part of the “Solidarity movement – outside the workplace on national level to handle the impact of the current political realities facing Afrikaners…”.

Judge Mojapelo’s description of Afriforum is instructive. He found that, “Afriforum is essentially about Afrikaner interests”.

This Afrikaner organization has defended the apartheid flag; and funded legal representation (Gerrie Nel and Barry Roux) to defend convicted Afrikaner criminals (Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte) who murdered an innocent black child, Matlhomola Mosweu in 2017. Now the same Afriforum says that Apartheid was not a crime against humanity. This is open racism. It’s the irony of ironies that the South African mainstream media, including the SABC, calls this bunch of apartheid apologists a “civil rights organization”.

BLF has asked the court to take strong action against these racists.

The Human Rights Commission must stop the “ja baas” attitude

The Human Rights Commission must stop the “ja baas” attitude

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) to stop its “ja baas” attitude and deal with the petulant racism of AfriForum decisively. AfriForum’s leader, Ernst Roets, has clearly and unapologetically violated the court’s decision sought by the SAHRC and the Mandela Foundation. It’s shocking that the SAHRC is mumbling and talking about investigations when the racist Roets is openly defying the court’s decision made this Wednesday that the “gratuitous display” of the apartheid flag constitutes hate speech, unfair discrimination, and harassment based on race in terms of Sections 10(1), 7 and 11 of the Equality Act respectively.

The “askies my baas” attitude displayed by the SAHRC gives credence to the claim that their court application to declare the display of the apartheid flag hate speech, was just a ruse to deflect attention from the #RamaphosaLeaks.

BLF calls on the SAHRC to show some spine and do its work by immediately taking action against Roets. If the SAHRC fears white racists who treat blacks with contempt, then BLF itself will deal with the racist in its own way and the SAHRC must not cry.

Equality Court postponed the AfriForum case against BLF

Equality Court postponed the AfriForum case against BLF

Earlier today the Equality Court sitting in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court postponed the spurious case of AfriForum against Black First Land First (BLF) to 18 and 20 September 2019. The case was postponed due to AfriForum’s unethical conduct of disregarding the court rules with regard to the live broadcasting of the court proceedings in this matter. The racist group wanted to turn the court into a media spectacle. BLF’s objection to the intended media spectacle was upheld by the court.

The court ruled that the media lodge its application competently by Monday 26 August 2019, to televise the court’s proceedings and that BLF be properly served with the papers. It strongly cautioned that it won’t give the press permission to proceed broadcasting without BLF being given proper notice of the application.

BLF notes that the media didn’t find it appropriate to notify it of AfriForum’s intentions, which it was well aware of. To this end, the racist AfriForum had invited the media under the pretext that there shall be a live broadcast in terms of which its leader, Ernst Alex Roets, (who is the complainant and also a so called expert witness) would be given the platform. BLF regards these shenanigans by AfriForum as a gross abuse of the court processes. Roets is not an expert. He is a racist.

BLF will notify the court about the provocation against it that was orchestrated by an hostile white woman journalist of Newzroom Afrika. This relates to, what appeared to be, a rehearsed attempt to ambush the BLF President, Andile Mngxitama, to either accept or sign a piece of propaganda about the discredited “boere genocide” (Kill the Boer). It’s clear that the journalist knew of this dirty scheme by Roets. The BLF President correctly rejected the piece of evil propaganda and dropped it on the floor. The role of the media in this provocation cannot be left unattended to.

BLF will be back in court on the 18th of next month to defend our right to self defence. AfriForum has no right to exist

The racist AfriForum has brought BLF to the Equality Court for “hate speech”. This same bunch of land thieves have also gone to court to defend the right of whites to hoist the apartheid flag.

The advocate who argued in defence of the apartheid flag is an Oppenheimer who is the same person who wants BLF to forgo its right to self defence. AfriForum opposes Affirmative Action; Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment; Land Expropriation Without Compensation; and even denies that apartheid was a crime against humanity.

The land thieves are scared of BLF. They want to silence us. We won’t be silenced. The land is ours!

BLF in court tomorrow against the racist AfriForum

BLF in court tomorrow against the racist AfriForum

Tomorrow, 21 August 2019 Black First Land First (BLF) will be at the Equality Court, which will sit in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court, to defend itself against yet another attack on our movement by land thieves. The trial will be heard under case number 29/2018 EQ JHB. The racist AfriForum has taken our ourganisation to the Equality Court on false charges of hate speech. The right wing group hopes to silence our organization through the abuse of the judiciary.

All the white supremacist organizations, representing land thieves, are scared of BLF. These organizations will do everything to stop BLF from existing. This is because these organizations of land thieves know that BLF can’t be bought with money nor can it be brought down by intimidation.

These racist organizations such as Freedom Front Plus; Solidarity; AfriForum; and their related subsidiaries would not rest until their evil project of shutting down BLF succeeds. We have bad news for them. BLF is going nowhere and shall be registered for the 2021 Local Government Elections.

There are a dozen outstanding matters, including new ones, that these groups have brought against BLF which amount to an abuse of the judiciary, in furtherance of their anti black agendas.

The trial tommorow is about a complaint of hate speech that AfriForum brought against BLF. This is in relation to the one is to five (1:5) comment by BLF President, Andile Mngxitama, which was in response to Johann Rupert threatening violence on black people through his “private army” in the taxi industry. We responded by saying that black people have a right to self defence. AfriForum is taking us to court for saying that we have a right to defend ourselves.

We shall never be bullied into allowing ourselves to be murdered like chickens.

We shall meet the land thieves in court tomorrow morning.
