Black First Land First (BLF) notes with disdain the desperate campaign by the white media to tarnish the name of our revolutionary movement through fake news. BLF is aware that the white media, in its quest to prop up white monopoly capital, has resorted to lying by manufacturing fake news.
The story peddled by the white owned media about BLF’s telephone number being associated with the alleged threats on the life of Dr Makhosi Khoza, is a cheap fabrication. BLF does not and will not fight black people, including those we regard as askaris. This fact is known to the white owned media that continues to play ignorant. In this respect, the white owned media hopes to generate a situation of black on black violence in our country.
BLF and its members would NEVER make such threats to a black person. We hold high the principle of “peace amongst blacks”. We also have an official policy called the “BLACK CODE ON HOUSE NIGGERS & SELLOUTS”. The BLACK CODE mandates BLF to defend all blacks even those we disagree with. There is no way that BLF could threaten any black person. We reject with contempt the attempt to link our movement to the phone number through which the calls were ostensibly made.
BLF believes that there must be a white person or persons behind the attempt to smear our organization. We don’t regard Dr Khoza as a political anything. She is just loud and irrelevant. Moreover since she is black we won’t, under any circumstances, threaten her. The white owned media needs to understand what BLF stands for and stop peddling cheap lies.
BLF is under massive attack from white monopoly capital. The media reports under reply are generated as part of the onslaught on the organization. We won’t be deterred. Land must be returned by any means necessary!
