BLF rejects Ramaphosa’s white monopoly capital SONA

The State of the Nation Address (SONA) by Cyril Ramaphosa was a statement of the ‘New Deal’ of the Democratic Alliance (DA) not of RET which is policy of the ANC.

Nowhere does RET find expression in the SONA by Ramaphosa. The clear sign of the rejection of RET was the invitation of the apartheid mass murderer FW de Klerk to the SONA. The invitation of de Klerk was a disgusting act by Cyril Ramaphosa and an affirmation to the apartheid forces that white power is back.

BLF has opened cases of multiple murders against FW de Klerk including massacres that he presided over in defence of apartheid. The invitation of de Klerk to the SONA strikes us as the meeting of the Marikana massacre and Boipatong massacre. Its an insult to the memory of the murdered.

BLF is even more disgusted by the respect shown to the mass murderer FW de Klerk by members of parliament who clapped for the apartheid killer while booing the name of President Zuma. How soon have we blacks forgotten? We are a sick people!

The SONA shows that RET is dead from the point of view of the President of the country. Cyril speaks a bit of RET but walks a lot of the New Deal. He speaks RET only to deceive.

No land expropriation under Ramaphosa

There is not going to be any land expropriation without compensation under Cyril Ramaphosa. We must decode what he means by land expropriation without compensation. Each time he mentions it he quickly cancels it with a racist logic that says that land can only be given back if the white agricultural sector is not affected. The lie that there is food security which will be affected negatively if blacks get land is colonial thinking by Cyril Ramaphosa. The ANC 54th Elective Conference has resolved on land expropriation without compensation. Ramaphosa says that there shall be consultations.

Unlike with the joke of internships instead of jobs, there are no time frames or targets for land expropriation without compensation. There is no plan or will for it. We can’t expect Cyril Ramaphosa to lead a process to take the land from his white friends and give it to blacks.

Mining Charter surrendered

The SONA has also killed the Mining Charter. Cyril Ramaphosa now says that the Mining Charter must be negotiated with the same mining bosses who reject the transformation of the mining sector.

No State Bank, no nationalisation of SARB

The SONA is silent on the development of a State Bank and Black Bank – no mention, no time lines, no targets! The most shocking of the SONA is its silence on the nationalisaiton of the South African Reserve Bank (SARB). Cyril Ramaphosa is defying the ANC and undermining RET.

Free education not for all

Ramaphosa’s pro white monopoly capital SONA was a direct attack on the ‘Free Education’ pronounced by President Zuma. Ramaphosa, instructed by the London/Stellenbosch mafia, says only first year students will get free education in 2018. This is not what Comrade Zuma had pronounced. Ramaphosa is eroding ‘Free Education’ because he wants his business partners in the banking system to make profits from poor students with expensive loans.

BLF rejects the SONA of 2018 – we are not bamboozled by good sounding English

BLF will watch how those who gave the SONA a standing ovation will now try to disagree. Its a superficial disagreement. Parliament has become a place of the hegemony of white monopoly capital ideology and interests. Blacks are not represented in parliament.

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.

BLF supports the NUM march against AngloGold Ashanti

BLF supports the NUM march against AngloGold Ashanti

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on society to support the protest march by the National Union of Mine Workers (NUM) in defence of 8 500 jobs that may be lost at AngloGold Ashanti. BLF believes that the mass retrechments by the company, where Sipho Pityana is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), are part of the attack on the economy by white monopoly capital in its campaign for regime change.

Pityana is a vocal regime change agent. The plan is to turn the workers against President Zuma by putting the blame of joblessness on him instead of the unpatriotic mining industry. These retrenchments are about sabotaging the Mining Charter. Pityana is a leading opponent of the Mining Charter. To this end he is now sacrificing black workers in his evil scheme to try and stop the Mining Charter from being implemented.

BLF calls on NUM to demand worker’s ownership immediately. Furthermore, BLF asks NUM to put AngloGold Ashanti on terms. If they retrench workers, then the workers will be mobilized to occupy and take over the mines. The truth is that the mining bosses need the workers and the profits more that the workers need to be under the exploitative employment of the mining bosses. Now is the time to demand what is ours and be owners of the mines ourselves.

The call by NUM is correct and progressive. BLF says; defend the jobs! Implement the Mining Charter now!

Day two of shut down of Vametco Mine in Brits

Day two of shut down of Vametco Mine in Brits

Black First Land First (BLF) has dispatched a delegation to Mothutlung, a town in the North-West Province, this morning. This follows a request by the Mothutlung community for BLF to support them in their righteous struggle.

The community has shut down the Vametco mine in support of the Mining Charter since yesterday. The mine is located in the land of the community but the community only has 2% shareholding in it. This is unjust and an insult. The community is therefore demanding 30% shareholding in the mine as provided for in the Mining Charter.

BLF supports the shut down of the mine. We shall provide all the necessary support to the Mothutlung community so as to ensure that the people own the minerals. All the roads leading to the mine are shut down. They have been barricaded with burning tyres.

Let the people enjoy the wealth in their land! Land or death!
