No Land Expropriation Without Compensation – BLF was right!

No Land Expropriation Without Compensation – BLF was right!

Black First Land First (BLF) had warned the landless people of South Africa (SA) against the parliamentary fraud on land. The mainstream media has greatly assisted politicians to advance the lie that Land Expropriation Without Compensation (LEWC) will be achieved any time soon. The truth is that the Constitution won’t be amended before the 2019 general elections. Politicians are playing political games for votes.

The Constitutional Review Committee (Committee) tasked with “reviewing” section 25 of the Constitution has explained its mandate. The Committee says it will call for “public participation” from May 8th, 2018 starting in the Limpopo Province. The hearings are to gauge the “necessity” and “mechanism” for LEWC. In other words, the Committee will not be putting amendments before parliament in August this year but will be submitting recommendations from the “public hearings”.

The landless have been lied to. The whole parliamentary motion was a stunt to garner support in the 2019 elections – it was not for land return without payment. It was an act of propaganda to deceive our people into thinking that an agreement has been reached to amend the Constitution. Now the Committee is going back to seek the opinions of the public on a matter where national consensus has long been achieved. This is a delaying tactic.

BLF wishes to remind the landless majority that there has already been public hearings on land expropriation – a Bill to this effect is with the Public Works Portfolio Committee in parliament. All that was needed was to amend that Bill so as to bring it in line with the proposed constitutional amendments and if necessary test the enhanced Bill via public hearings. This would have ensured that the Constitution is amended before the 2019 elections.

BLF calls on our people to make it clear to all the political parties in parliament that if no amendment of section 25 of the Constitution is realized before the 2019 elections, then they will not vote for liars. Lets stop politicians from lying and making empty promises.

Land expropriation without compensation NOW – is possible! BLF won’t wait for parliament and liars. We shall continue with people-driven LEWC. The land is ours!

Land or death!

Beware of EFF games!

Today Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) directed by its handlers, the Italian mafioso Mazzotti and the British imperialist Lord Robin Renwick play a dangerous game with Radical Economic Transformation (RET) in parliament.

Mazzotti and Renwick have instructed EFF to go to parliament together with the anti RET arm of the ANC to turn the call for RET into a political football game.

The nation must remember the last time EFF undermined the call by President Zuma for land expropriation without compensation through teaming up with reactionary elements such as Jackson Mthembu, Derrick Hanekom and Pravin Gordahn to undermine that call in parliament.

Today EFF will cynically propose a motion to support RET – all calculated to make sure that the ANC anti-RET faction will oppose this.

This political game will then be used to try to suggest that President Jacob Zuma is not serious about RET.

Black First Land First (BLF) believes that EFF, Jackson Mthembu, Pravin Gordahn and other anti-RET elements are all colluding in a conspiracy to undermine RET and this will manifest today in parliament.

The proposal by EFF today is designed by white monopoly capital and supported and coordinated by the Italian mafioso and also British imperialism. This is how the try to undermine RET. If EFF is serious about RET, all it needs to do is to express its support for President Jacob Zuma’s call for RET; the call for the Mining Charter; and the call for land expropriation without compensation. These do not need stupid games in parliament. All it needs is a meeting of revolutionaries where a united front for RET would be called for.

BLF supports a genuine move for RET that is why on the 18th of November 2017 it will hold a RET rally in support of Radical Economic Transformation Now!

We support President Zuma. We also support candidates in the ANC that are for RET.
It is sad that what is going to happen in parliament it is a game that is meant to confuse our people – it is a game that is meant to undermine RET.

We call on our people to be alert. We ask our people to be aware of the agenda of white settler monopoly capital in cahoots with western imperialism including the Italian paymasters of EFF that are going to come today in parliament.

20 000 farms on sale – don’t buy stolen property!

Black First Land First (BLF) is informed that white farmers are selling their farms in a panic to avoid the people’s land expropriation without compensation revolution. BLF has set in motion a process to establish Land Expropriation Committees across the nation to take back the land. Now, Farmers Weekly reports that over 20 000 farms are on sale – the highest number to be put on sale in the last 20 years.

BLF warns everyone not to buy stolen property. All the land in white hands is stolen property. Those who buy stolen goods must know that they are involved in criminal activity. They must not be surprised when the people take back their land. BLF reiterates – do not buy stolen property! Don’t become an accomplice to criminal transactions. The land has its rightful owners who are coming to take it back.

BLF supports land expropriation in Alexandra

This morning Black First Land First (BLF) and the community of Alexandra occupied land opposite the Gautrain Station in Marlboro. This land belongs to the people and has been given to Wits University to keep in the interests of the people. However, Wits University has decided to sell this land for profit without consulting the real owners of the land. It’s unfortunate that the South African Police Services (SAPS) have decided to come and shoot our people.

BLF supports the community and we shall continue with Land Expropriation Without Compensation! It’s a call that was made by President Zuma. It’s a call that was made by the people. It’s a call that we, as BLF, are supporting and shall continue to do so until all the land in stolen hands is in the hands of our people. We are currently also speaking to the community of Alexandra to try to occupy empty houses in Sandton itself.

BLF also calls on the SAPS not to obey the illegal instructions of the racist Democratic Alliance (DA) – that runs the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality – to shoot at innocent land occupiers. The land belongs to the people!

The struggle is NOW!
Land or Death!
