#TakeBLFtoParliament, heed the call of the revolution!

The Oppenheimers have shut down the #TakeBLFtoParliament campaign that was hosted by the BackaBuddy crowdfunding platform. This is not surprising. White monopoly capital (WMC) is hellbent on stopping BLF from going to parliament in 2019! Backed by its huge following – the wretched of the earth in general – BLF has reinforced its unwavering commitment to realising its objective of using politics to end politics. By going to parliament BLF will create a second arm of assault against the anti black system while continuing with the first arm of extra parliamentary mass insurrection and direct action. This two pronged approach to political engagement is in furtherance of destroying white supremacy and creating a fully responsive Sankarist state.

Hence we call on our people to intensify the campaign to #TakeBLFtoParliament by donating towards the deposit amount of R605000,00 that is required for BLF to register with the Independent Electoral (IEC) to contest the next general election. The deposit amount is by law refundable once a political party obtains at least one seat in parliament. BLF is confident it will get seats in parliament.

Any sum of money donated, however small or huge or in between, will be appreciated. If you want to donate to BLF, please make your payment into our bank account, details of which are as follows:

Account Name: Black First Land First
Account Number: 625 7120 2911

Oppenheimers have shut down #TakeBLFtoParliament on Back-a-Buddy crowdfunding platform

Black First Land First (BLF) notes with disdain that the Oppenheimer family has shut down the #TakeBLFtoParliament crowdfunding campaign on the BackaBuddy platform. BLF has intensified its attack on white monopoly capital (WMC) and the Oppenheimer family. To this end it has intervened both in the Parliamentary Committee’s probe into how the Oppenheimer-owned Fireblade Aviation got to operate a private terminal inside the OR Tambo International Airport; and through the laying of criminal charges of fraud, corruption and bribery against Nicky and Johnathan Oppenheimer in that they had illegally acquired an airport terminal inside a national key point which in turn entails their corrupt relationship with the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC).

A few hours after BLF confronted the Oppenheimers, the BackaBuddy platform threatened to shut down the #TakeBLFtoParliament campaign on their website, and yesterday followed through on its threat. No dialogue! No Explanation! White capital showed us its power. BLF had engaged BackaBuddy prior to the launch of the campaign over a period of nearly 3 months and ensured that all criteria was adhered to, yet those who run BackaBuddy contacted BLF to demand that the #TakeBLFtoParliament campaign be cancelled due to it “being divisive”.

BLF to open case of corruption against the Oppenheimers

BLF to open case of corruption against the Oppenheimers

This weekend’s reports that the Oppenheimer family may have financially induced the African National Congress (ANC) to grant it a permit to host its own private international airport, are a cause for concern. Black First Land First (BLF) takes seriously the allegation that there may have been an unlawful engagement between the Oppenheimers and the ANC so as to unduly influence the process to grant the said Oppenheimers the right to operate their own international airport inside the O.R Tambo International Airport.

BLF considers the fact that the Oppenheimers went to the ANC instead of just following the normal process of application, as irrefutable evidence of state capture. We have warned repeatatly about surrendering the aviation space to wealthy families. The revelations, that the ANC’s head office had been in corrupt schemes with the Oppenheimers, further justify the extension of the terms of reference of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCOI) on State Capture.

BLF asks, why is the JCOI on State Capture being delayed? Any delays create fertile grounds for white monopoly capital (WMC) to continue looting the state.

BLF is preparing a statement of evidence to be submitted to the police. A case of corruption will be opened against the Oppenheimers this week. We call on the ANC to cooperate with the police. The ANC must voluntarily submit to the police the relevant evidence of corruption relating to bribery by the Oppenheimers that seems to have resulted in the Fireblade Aviation application being illegally expedited.

Corruption is corruption! It must be fought everywhere, irrespective of who the perpetrator is. BLF will leave no stone unturned in fighting the corruption of the Oppenheimers. Enough is enough!
