Mediation between the Human Rights Commission and BLF

Today, Black First Land First (BLF) will attend a mediation process at the offices of the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) in the matter of Lucy Strydom versus BLF and 6 others under case number 11/2018 EQ JHB​​​​​​​. This follows the order on 18 July 2018 of the Equality Court (sitting at the Johannesburg Magistrate) that the parties engage in mediation.

The SAHRC financially supports the racist Lucy Strydom via legal representation in her quest to get BLF banned. The objective of Strydom’s case is to stop BLF from contesting the 2019 elections.

In the first court hearing the Magistrate agreed with BLF that the matter must proceed to mediation. Also the Magistate ruled that BLF may seek the assistance of the SAHRC to fund its legal representation just as the Applicant, Lucy Strydom, has done in this case. The SAHRC has turned down BLF’s subsequent written request for legal assistance, without any sound reason.

BLF had also asked the SAHRC for a mediation process in line with the court order dated 18 July 2018. While the SAHRC has agreed to mediation herein it has contravened the impartiality requirement by imposing its own Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as the mediator. This makes the SAHRC the complainant and the mediator at the same time. The SAHRC is not interested in mediation to facilitate an amicable resolution of this matter. It seems to us that all the SAHRC wishes for is to get BLF banned from contesting elections next year.

BLF will attend the mediation session and demand a neural mediator. We will insist that the mediation services offered at Court be utilized and to this end an appropriate mediator, from a panel of accredited mediators appointed by the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, be chosen. Strydom claims to be harassed by slogans such as ‘one settler, one bullet’ and the BLF motto, ‘Land or Death’. Assisted by the SAHRC she has asked the Court to, amongst other things, deregister BLF from the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). This is a thinly veiled attempt to ban BLF.

BLF will be on the ballot paper in 2019 to defend radical economic transformation. We call on the SAHRC to stop playing politics. We note the blatant bias on the part of the SAHRC. They are quick to assist the racist Lucy Strydom but are refusing to give BLF the same courtesy.

The mediation will take place under the following details:

Date: 17 September 2018
Time: 2pm
Venue: SAHRC offices, 2nd floor,
33 Hoofd Street, Braampark,
Forum 3, Braamfontein.

BLF to take action against AfriForum

BLF to take action against AfriForum

Black First Land First (BLF) takes the denial of apartheid being a crime against humanity as insulting the dignity of black people and an act of racism. Apartheid was declared a crime against humanity by the United Nations. The International Criminal Court has also expressed in its statutes that apartheid is a crime against humanity.

The racist AfriForum/Euroforum continues with its racist activities unabated. BLF will no longer tolerate the racism of this group. AfriForum/Euroforum has now revved up its racism by denying that apartheid is a crime against humanity. Denialism of the holocaust is a crime in Germany, correctly so.

BLF in Gauteng will be undertaking several actions against AfriForum including opening a case of racism with the Equality Court on Thursday, engaging in protest actions and writing letters to parliament to have this group banned. If parliamant and the courts do not act, BLF will stop the racism of AfriForum by any means necessary.

BLF regards the denialism of apartheid as a declaration of war against black people.

Don’t come back AfriForum, you bloody land thieves!

Black First Land First (BLF) is informed that the racist settler colonialist group called AfriForum is currently in Europe to gather support against blacks in South Africa (SA). We have already called for the banning of all colonial and apartheid organizations – AfriForum is one of those!

The so-called tour by this organisation is nothing but a campaign for economic terrorism. AfriForum thinks it can sabotage the economy via sanctions and investment strikes by global capital to force blacks to stop demanding their land. We don’t care for investments by imperialism. The land is ours and we have resolved to take it back!

BLF wants to send a clear message to AfriForum (which is in fact Euroforum) – stay in Europe, your motherland. Do not come back! If you come back, we shall not be held accountable when lions eat you. You are no longer welcome in our country. You are rude and arrogant visitors who have usurped our land rights. We call on AfriForum not to return to SA – you have done enough damage already.

BLF will monitor those who meet with this extremist group. The European friends of AfriForum are our enemies!

Land or death!

Whites must go back to Europe not Australia

Black First Land First (BLF) welcomes the call by the Australian government for white land thieves to leave South Africa. However, BLF is totally opposed to the call that these land thieves must go to Australia. The colonial settler government of Australia has no right to invite more settler colonialists to Australia, a country that they have stolen from the indegenious people!

South African white farmers are land thieves from Europe. They must return to Europe. BLF will be writing to the legitimate owners of Australia to warn them about the possible second invasion of their territory. BLF seeks to form relations with the Australian Aboriginal people.

Land expropriation without compensation in South Africa is not a license for land thieves to go and invade other territories. They must go back to Europe!
