BLF supports the revolutionary actions of the students of UJ

The students of the University of Johannesburg (UJ) are correct in characterizing the primary contradiction in South Africa as being white monopoly capital. The revolutionary students of UJ are also correct by outing Pravin Gordhan and Mcebisi Jonas as agents of white monopoly capital. They are correct to point out that for us to fight for liberation we have to focus our attention, not on side issues and petty squabbles amongst black people, but we must fight white monopoly capital.

Black First Land First (BLF) fully supports the clear revolutionary leadership given by the UJ students. Salute!

BLF to start protest actions against ABSA

Black First Land First (BLF) received a response to its letter of demand to ABSA yesterday morning from the ABSA CEO Maria Ramos. In the letter to ABSA; BLF had demanded that the bank comply fully with the remedial actions by the Public Protector advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane. ABSA was found by the Public Protector”s investigation to have benefited from apartheid corruption and must pay back R1.1 billion. This is a portion of the R26 Billion stolen from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB).

BLF held successful meeting with Venezuela embassy

BLF held successful meeting with Venezuela embassy

Today, a delegtion of five Black First Land First (BLF) members led by the President of the movement, Andile Mngxitama, met the Ambassador of Venezuela Mrs Mairini Moreno Merinda and Deputy head of Mission Mr Omar Berrotena in Pretoria.

The meeting was at the request of BLF as part of its anti imperialism activities. During the meeting, BLF was informed about the regimen change campaigns in Venezuela by the opposition parties who are sponsored and directed by imperialism. The regime change efforts in Venezuela by the opposition parties is directed at stopping the Radical Economic Transformation in that society.

BLF also learnt about the unreasonble and false demands of the opposition parties which are all calculated to prolong the economic terrorism driven by the United States of American (USA). The revolution in Venezuela is in danger. The prolonged economic terrorism is wearing the population out. The USA funded demonstrations and protests are getting more and more violent.

BLF on its part has expressed 100% support for the Bolivarian Revolution. We believe that the regime change template being pursued in Venezuela is the same as the one that is pursued by the opposition parties and the pro imperialist faction of the ANC which is led by the corrupt Pravin Gordhan and the murderer of the Marikana workers, Cyril Ramaphosa. Imperialism must be defeated in Venezuela as well as in South Africa (SA).

BLF shall be undertaking further campaigns to popularise the “Hands Off Venezuela” campaign, including engaging in protest action at the USA embassy. Last¬†month BLF sent a letter to President Maduro¬†expressing its support for the withdrawal of Venezuela from the Organisation of American States (OAS). The attack on Venezuela is the same attack that is awaiting South Africans when we take back the land. Furthermore, BLF shall he countering the lies told by the white owned media about what’s going on in Venezuela.

The meeting ended on a high note where both parties agreed on further engagement to defend revolutionary government of Venezuela.

BLF under attack from white monopoly capital

BLF under attack from white monopoly capital

Black First Land First (BLF) considers the latest round of attacks on our movement as part of a well coordinated strategy to undermine the revolutionary work of our organization and other progressive organisations. The white owned media is on high drive in defence of land thieves – day in and day out the white owned media manufactures fake news about BLF. This is expected. Our enemies are worried and concerned.

The reason why white monopoly capital and its media are running a propaganda campaign against BLF is to try and divert attention from the R4.3 billion corruption that happened in Treasury under the former Minister of Finance, Pravin Gordhan. The invention of fake emails is part of the strategy to force the attention of the nation away from the proven corruption at Treasury and to find easy diversions through gossip and fake news production. BLF challenges the white owned media to produce the full emails, not the clearly fake e-mails attributed to the leaders of our organization.

For the record, BLF has no moral or political objections to ask for funds from the Guptas, any individual or any other entity it may decide to ask for funds from. What is despicable is the lies told about funding which has never been given. What we know is that its the Democratic Alliance (DA) and many other political parties that got funding from the Gupta family. The Gupta family has not been found guilty of any criminal activities. BLF challenges all political parties to reveal the sources of their funding and stop the hypocrisy.

The white owned media has deliberately suppressed news of how Julius Malema has openly begged for money from Johann Rupert, the corrupt land thief. It is not speculation that Malema asked for money from Rupert. There is hard evidence, not fake emails to support this. Yet the white owned media is totally silent about this.

BLF understands that the fake e-mails are also used as propaganda to deflect attention from the very successful Land Imbizo it held over the weekend in Soweto. White monopoly capital is worried about the Soweto Land Declaration and its Program of Action which calls for, amongst other things, land expropriation without compensation by the landless themselves. The Land Imbizo was attended by more than 5000 delegates from across the country and from all the provinces.

As part of the imbizo resolution BLF will be seeking meetings with the ruling party and the President of the country Mr Jacob Zuma. BLF shall also take a trip to Zimbabwe to meet President Mugabe. The Imbizo also called for the establishment of Land Expropriation Committees to take back the land.

Nothing will deter us from pursuing the agenda for land return.
