BLF to take action against FNB

Black First Land First (BLF) will today meet with Siphesihle Jele, Simon Masimula, Sipho Coke and Xolani Nkosi, the victims of racism at the hands of First National Bank (FNB). The four former employees of FNB had lost their jobs as a result of private e-mails and WhatsApp communications about their political views relating to the Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane and his white wife, Natalie.

BLF recognises these acts by FNB of unfair dismissals as racist bullying so as to try to silence the right our people to freedom of expression – including the right to respond to and call out racism.

Black people in this country are brutalised without any consequences. This high handed behaviour by FNB is calculated to inflict fear in black people so as to paralyze them from raising any questions when racism is experienced.

BLF will meet with the victims of racism and shall take direct action this week against FNB.

BLF does not tolerate racism and will not allow FNB to get away with murder.

Land or death!

702 we are not dogs, apologize now!

Black First Land First (BLF) has undertaken to monitor and act upon all incidents of racism in the media. It has come to our attention that 702 thinks that black babies are animals that must compete with dogs for cuteness. White supremacy moves from the premise that blacks are animals. We remember Penny Sparrow saying that blacks are cute like monkeys. BLF demands that 702 apologizes immediately failing which it will face protest action.

We will embark on multiple actions including laying charges with the Equality Court. The radio station 702 is known for being anti black but this time around they have taken it too far.

We repeat, apologize or face BLF revolutionary action.

No one can protect racist journalists

Black First Land First (BLF) notes the misguided clownish comments by the so called Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, about “suffocating” people. Minister Mbalula is giving racist journalists false hope. There is no force on earth that can protect racists against the righteous anger of the people. BLF believes that Minister Mbalula’s jokes are a distraction from something serious we are busy with currently. This is not netball that we are we dealing with. We are busy with exposing racism and massive corruption cover-up by white monopoly capital.

BLF has maintained its position that it supports freedom of expression and freedom of the media but we shall not tolerate any acts of racism being committed under the pretext of practicing journalism. BLF is also clear that any cover-up of white monopoly capital corruption would be fought. The right to protest is a fundamental right enshrined in the Constitution. This is not a police state.

Our advice to the white journalists who have been cautioned to stop racism, is that they must observe the warning given to them by BLF or face fresh and vigorous 24/7 protest action. We shall suffocate them with protest. This is not a joke!
