Charge the racists with serious charges!

Charge the racists with serious charges!

The police have responded with timid mild charges against the Maselspoort Resort and Conference Centre racists. The timid actions by the police emboldened the racists. The acts of racism were plain to all who saw the video of the incident. Furthermore, the parents have reported the fact of how racist the acts were. The police who are not trained to understand and combat individual acts of racism, minimise these acts. These acts are not common assault but racist attacks on black children.

It’s an indictment on the ANC that 28 years into democracy South Africa doesn’t have an explicit anti racism law to punish acts of racism. The ANC rule facilitates anti black racism and the opposition parties are equally complicit in empowering racism by going into political coalitions with parties of white supremacy like the DA.

A historically informed legal framework to outlaw racism is long overdue. Such legislation must move from the principle that blacks can’t be racist but are victims of racism. Black First Land First (BLF) has been calling for the criminalisation of racism. In 2018 BLF published its Anti-Racism Bill in an attempt to prompt the ANC to act. Individual acts of racism shall be a reality untill blacks get real power which is predicated on the return of the land and on economic emancipation.

The DA and ActionSA support racism

The DA and ActionSA support racism

The opposition to the transformation of the Dis-Chem pharmacy group by the racist DA and its deputy version ActionSA shows that they are anti black. Dis-Chem has correctly placed a moratorium on employing whites to correct the race profile of its managment leadership. Both the DA and ActionSA are opposed to this progressive move preferring the racist representation currently obtaining. The objections of these parties to transformation reveals their anti black agenda.

Black First Land First (BLF) supports the transformation attempts by Dis-Chem, these are long overdue. All companies operating in South Africa must reflect the race composition of the country where the black majority must be realised. It’s shocking that political parties act as blockers of transformation. Black people who vote for these parties vote against their self interest and for the maintenance of the apartheid status quo.

Racist Magistrate’s Court evicts black family from own property

Racist Magistrate’s Court evicts black family from own property

A Magistrate’s Court in Cape Town has evicted a black family from its property and given it to a white racist. This is happening today in South Africa. It goes to show once more that blacks are not protected by law in this country. The courts side with whites to oppress black people.

The white man has been squatting at the property for almost a year without paying any rent and without a lease agreement. The owners, because they are black and have bought property in a white suburban area, are denied the right to occupy their own family home.

Black First Land First (BLF) condemns the decision of the magistrate to evict blacks from their own property and to hand it to a white squatter who has no right or permission to occupy the property.

NPA must send the human trafficker back to jail

NPA must send the human trafficker back to jail

Black First Land First (BLF) is appalled by the sentence given to the Cape Town white woman of a 10-year suspended sentence for human trafficking, amongst other serious crimes.

Camilla de Waal Rossouw who is 32 years old, was sentenced last Friday by the High Court in Cape Town. The court has shown that if you are white you can commit heinous crimes and you will be let off the hook.

Human trafficking is serious in South Africa. Children and women are the most affected. This sentence encourages whites to carry out these sorts of crimes. If the perpetrator were black, the court would have correctly sentenced them to life but because it’s a white woman the court is prepared to look the other way.

This woman is dangerous; she pleaded guilty to over 11 charges which included kidnapping a child, human trafficking, trafficking for sexual slavery, assault, keeping of a brothel, living on the proceeds of prostitution and extortion involving more than R3 million.

This woman belongs in jail. BLF shall immediately write to the NPA to appeal the sentence. Next month South Africa observes the month of no abuse against women and children. Howevesentences like this makes a mockery of efforts to end gender based violence.
