BLF welcomes the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on state capture

Black First Land First (BLF) welcomes the announcement of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCOI) on state capture. President Zuma has done the right thing. The noisy chatter about state capture has been one-sided and has been used to shield the corruption of white monopoly capital. BLF hopes that the ‘Terms of Reference’ of the JCOI are broad enough to help uproot all corruption in South Africa (SA).

BLF shall actively participate in the work of the JCOI by providing information and evidence of white monopoly capital crimes in various areas. This includes instances of direct state capture via economic terrorism which has been used to control the state for example through the appointment of cabinet ministers. The saga of the R500 billion attack on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) by white monopoly capital to force the President to appoint Pravin Gordhan as Minister of Finance will be put before the JCOI.

BLF has evidence of several clear and beyond reasonable doubt instances of state capture by white monopoly capital which it will share with the commission. BLF encourages all to cooperate with the JCOI.

In the next few weeks BLF will outline the list of matters it will submit to the JCOI on state capture. We thank the President for acting on this important matter. Our country is suffocating under the yoke of white monopoly capital capture.

BLF calls on the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African National Congress (ANC) not to waste time with regime change talks. It’s now time to implement Radical Economic Transformation (RET), not to organize a coup against the President of the country. Defend President Zuma; advance RET and welcome the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on state capture.

Hands off President Zuma, RET now!

Hands off President Zuma, RET now!

We are disturbed by the report that the agents of white monopoly capital inside the African National Congress (ANC) are planning a coup. What is most outrageous is that the racist National Executive Committee (NEC) member Derek Hanekom is at the forefront of these new efforts. Hanekom behaves like a “baas” who is irritated with his blacks that he regards as permanent children.

The conspiracy to remove President Zuma is part of the assault on Radical Economic Transformation (RET). The new maneuvers are calculated to slow down and kill RET implementation by causing a constitutional crisis and political confusion. Instead of focusing on RET, now the energy of the nation will be put on these political conspiracies against the President. In this way white monopoly capital will yet again be removed from focus.

The pro RET ANC resolutions, adopted at the party’s 54th National Elective Conference, have frightened white monopoly capital. The money invested by white monopoly capital on Cyril Ramaphosa couldn’t stop the radical forces inside the ANC to push for RET. White monopoly capital has the Presidency of the ANC. But RET is policy. It’s not carte blanche for white monopoly capital. To try and regain the strategic advantage, the agents of white monopoly capital inside the ANC are conspiring to remove President Zuma. The aim is to kill RET before it even takes root.

Black First Land First (BLF) says, hands off President Zuma. We want implementation of RET now! Land expropriation without compensation is the overreaching RET demand which white monopoly capital wants extinguished. We won’t allow that! Derek Hanekom succeeded as the first Minister of Land Affairs post 1994 to impose the pro land thieves policy of “willing buyer, willing seller”. His attack on President Zuma is part of protecting white land owners who are his kith and kin.

BLF calls on all progressive forces to defend the gains of RET, such as “Free Education” which was announced by President Zuma. We don’t want any more political games. We want land now!

BLF to take Radical Economic Transformation forward

BLF to take Radical Economic Transformation forward

The progressive forces of Radical Economic Transformation (RET) inside the African National Congress (ANC) were defeated by the pro white monopoly capital forces of the neo liberal ‘New Deal’. While the top six shows a mix of leaders, and this maybe true for the entire National Executive Committee (NEC), the point is that RET now does not have a champion at the highest office. There will be stagnation and no advancement towards RET from within the ANC’s top leadership.

Black First Land First (BLF) has adopted RET as a minimum programe upon which all those who wish to defeat white monopoly capital should converge around irrespective of political affiliation. We shall henceforth be the shameless advocate for RET. BLF shall seek to unite all the progressive black people inside and outside the ANC to carry on with the fight for RET.

RET forces must spread and be represented in all the arenas of decision making, including parliament. More importantly, RET must be a mass action movement of the people. RET means, first and foremost, land expropriation without compensation. This means that RET forces must put land first and undertake direct action for land return against land thieves.

BLF shall also lead the progressive forces to fight white monopoly capital corruption and demand the implementation of the revised Mining Charter. BLF and all other progressive forces must defend the gains of ‘Free Education’ as part of the RET programme of action. The agitation for a black bank and state bank which are pro black must continue. Reparations for Marikana and a living minimum wage must be part of the RET program. Black self-love can be realized through the revolutionary programe of RET.

Early in the new year BLF will hold a National Strategic Planning meeting to chart the way forward and to reconstitute the new RET forces. Change comes through struggle. The fight must be taken to the enemy which is white monopoly capital. The masses make history. We don’t agonize, we organize!

The time for a revolutionary regroupment under a minimum programe is now! The right wing is consolidating to entrench the power of white monopoly capital. The left must organise for Black Power. Now is the time for RET! Now is the time to take back the land! We are ready for RET!
