Case opened against attacker of BLF Deputy President

Case opened against attacker of BLF Deputy President

Last night police stationed at the Orlando Police Station opened a criminal case against the attacker of Black First Land First (BLF) Deputy President, Comrade Zanele Lwana. The case number is CAS 287/1/2019.

BLF is disappointed that the case was only opened after pressure was put on the police by the movement to do their work. BLF will lay a complaint with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) in this regard. The conduct of the police is not conducive to fighting crime and serving the community. If the police had to be put under pressure before they acted in a case of a prominent leader, what more in the case of an ordinary citizen?

An Ode to the women of the revolution

An Ode to the women of the revolution

Black First Land First (BLF) honours the women of the revolution this month of International Women’s Day.

The colonised black majority includes the black women who in turn constitute the majority. The colonization of black women expresses itself in everything including in their labour, their voices and contributions. We applaud black women for their strength and courage in the face of the greatest evil which is our enemy – white supremacy.

From Mme Olivia Makete, who endured a brutal attack from Cyril Ramaphosa’s supporters who in turn showed disdain for her commitment to radical economic transformation; to BLF Deputy President Zanele Lwana, who remains fearless in championing the movement’s agenda for Radical Economic Transformation (RET) in a patriarchal white supremacist political environment; to Dudu Myeni, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma; and to every other black woman who has shown resilience by casting away illusions and preparing to fight against the enemy – we applaud you all!

Our applause is for you for keeping up with the fight, not just of equality which includes the full and fair enjoyment of the benefits of RET, but most importantly of equity through the toppling of white rule.

In contrast to this, is the deafening silence of mainstream feminists, who don’t engage in the practical application of the principles of their movement.

Mainstream feminism looks down on radical historical frameworks of black resistance and demonizes women who engage in revolutionary praxis to facilitate resistance.

And finally, we especially honour the women of the revolutionary feminist BLF – the vanguards of RET. On the gender question, BLF women and men are guided by Black Consciousness, Pan Afrikanism and the leadership ethos of Assata Shakur and Thomas Sankara.
