BLF rejects Sanef’s Inquiry into media credibility & ethics

BLF denounces the South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) Panel of Inquiry into Media Credibility and Ethics.

We believe that it is a mechanism to whitewash the many bad acts of journalism and the open bias of the mainstream media against Radical Economic Transformation (RET). The fact that the same Sanef has been silent on many occasions of abuses of media freedom, including the shutting down of ANN7, makes their Panel of Inquiry not a credible process.

We call for an Independent Media Tribunal with a sound regulatory framework to monitor and address any violation of the principles of ethical journalism in the media.

ZCC urged to reject SANEF’s call to change its decision to boycott Tiso Blackstar

ZCC urged to reject SANEF’s call to change its decision to boycott Tiso Blackstar

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) to reject the desperate and dishonest call by the South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) to reconsider its position to boycott the Tiso Blackstar stable.

This call by SANEF is disingenuous. It is based on the refusal to accept bad journalism and the insults which had been directed at the church and its leadership – in particular His Grace the Right Reverend Bishop, Dr Barnabas Lekganyane.

BLF says to the ZCC, “press on with the just cause. Lead us all to boycott white monopoly capital so that we can all get justice!”

White monopoly capital does not respect the truth or any black beliefs. It has total disregard for the observance and practice of ethical conduct. It only respects its profits. But the ZCC because of its size is able to kick them where it hurts most, in the pockets.

Viva ZCC Viva!

When SANEF is done talking to the racist Koos Bekker, it can come and talk to BLF!

When SANEF is done talking to the racist Koos Bekker, it can come and talk to BLF!

Black First Land First (BLF) has learnt from the racist, apartheid and colonial News24 – which is owned by Koos Bekker and created by the land dispossessors and justifiers of apartheid being Naspers – that SANEF is giving BLF until 10h00 tomorrow to respond to what they say is not a satisfactory compliance with the High Court order. SANEF has not written to us. We are also not aware if it has written to our lawyers. We therefore do not take the News24 statement seriously.

SANEF has every right to talk to Koos Bekker or to apartheid deniers. When it is satisfied taking to others, it can come and talk to us. We are ready and willing to engage, as we have always been.

White monopoly capital unleashes 450 lawyers on BLF

The revolutionary movement, Black First Land First (BLF), is under attack by white monopoly capital for taking a stand against the corruption of ABSA and the racism of white journalists who are in cahoots with the corrupt white monopoly capitalists. In one day BLF received two letters of demand from the giant law firm Webber Wentzel which is based at 90 Rivonia Road in Sandton. Through these letters they are trying to intimidate BLF with threats of legal lynching.  Don’t these witches sleep? Or is it insomnia from all their evil actions against black people?

The first letter which was received on Thursday 29 June from Webber Wenzel was on the instruction of the corrupt rogue ABSA bank that specialises in stealing from the people. BLF has given ABSA until next week Wednesday to make an undertaking to pay back the money as per the remedial actions by the Public Protector. This deadline stands! Our advice to ABSA is that it must comply or face protest from BLF and society. Protest is a fundamental right. This basic point seems to be lost to ABSA and Webber Wentzel. BLF was threatened to withdraw our call for ABSA to pay back the money by 12:00 yesterday or face further legal action. Our response was an emphatic “voetsek ABSA! “.

The second letter was sent to us on Friday 30 June by the same Webber Wentzel – now ostensibly under the instructions of the so called South African Editors Forum (SANEF). BLF does not recognize SANEF which is an organization founded and funded by Johann Rupert and other representatives of white monopoly capital. Through Webber Wentzel, SANEF is threatening to interdict BLF. This is a joke! BLF will not stop its war against racism and white corruption on the say-so of an askari organization like SANEF.

BLF is clear! We maintain our demand that the white lawyers who are known racists, just like Peter Bruce, must forthwith give us an undertaking that they will stop promoting racism and covering up white corruption. Failure to do so will lead to protest actions. The standard of what is acceptable protest was set by SAVE SA when it chose to protest at the private home of the Gupta family. Not only that, but also at the religious event of the same family. Should the named journalists fail to stop their racism BLF will not only protest at their homes but shall also follow them to their areas of worship.

It’s a white lie to say that BLF intends to take any action against black journalists like Karima Brown or Ferial Haffajee Whilst these black journalists suffer from an identity crisis, we regard them as lost members of the black family. They are bought by our enemy but are not the enemy. We call on Ferial and Karima to come back home and stop being agents of whiteness.

BLF will not be intimidated by the 450 lawyers of Webber Wentzel who work day and night to try to silence BLF. Our revolutionary message and actions to end racism and white corruption will not be stopped by evil actions and threats by white monopoly capital. It is quite evident that BLF is giving white monopoly capital sleepless nights. The interesting point is that BLF is just warning up. In fact, we are just stretching before striking out. The panic by white monopoly capital is unjustified and premature.

BLF is clear – ABSA must pay back the money! Secondly, racist and corruption defenders like Peter Bruce must stop or face further action. BLF won’t be intimidated by racists. To Webber Wentzel we say, “watch out, we may just pay you a visit too!” SANEF is a useless distraction. We won’t even picket it.
