Ramaphosa, stop hating President Zuma

Ramaphosa, stop hating President Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) is outraged by the vindictive and hateful behaviour of Cyril Ramaphosa towards the People’s President, Comrade Zuma. Ramaphosa has withdrawn the appeal, previously instituted by the Presidency under Zuma, to overturn the decision of the High Court including the equally vindictive and hateful R10 million cost order imposed on Zuma in his personal capacity.

The said High Court cost order was part of the finding in the application where the Presidency took the state capture report of the former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, on review and asked that it be set aside. The cost order was made a personal responsibility of Cde Zuma to comply with, despite the fact that he instituted the application in the interests of the state and accordingly in his capacity as the State President. Furthermore, there were no compelling reasons for such a punitive order of cots to imposed on him. The judiciary has allowed itself to be used for political reasons. We saw the same shockingly harsh cost order being imposed against the Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mhkwebane, after she ruled that ABSA must pay back the money that it stole from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB).

The timing of the withdrawal of the appeal by Ramaphosa is also instructive. The “New Dawn” pro white monopoly capital (WMC) hateful forces of Ramaphosa waited until the court day to unleash their hatred towards Zuma.

WMC hates Zuma because he is the father of radical economic transformation (RET). But the masses of our people love President Zuma. BLF calls on Ramaphosa to stop his hateful project against Zuma and to reinstate the appeal to overturn the absurd ruling.

BLF stands with Brazilian President, Lula da Silva!

BLF stands with Brazilian President, Lula da Silva!

Black First Land First (BLF) stands with the People’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil who is being persecuted by the west. In South Africa (SA) we have a similar situation where our People’s President, Comrade JG Zuma, suffers the same fate.

Currently, both our nations are under assault from western capitalist imperialism that is hellbent on securing and strengthening its stranglehold on our resources and our people. The only crime in the eyes of this enemy is that both Lula and Zuma want to liberate the oppressed people from its grip and ensure that they attain total freedom.

Quite evidently, the attack on President Lula is part of the imperialist plan to decimate the BRICS project through the vilification of its leaders. They execute their plan by employing internal reactionary agents within the political fabric of our respective countries.

The west is terrified by the prospect of Lula returning to office for a third term as Brazil’s President and continuing the programme of radically changing the lives of the country’s majority. Yet again, the same situation prevails in SA. With Lula out of the way in Brazil – just like with Zuma out of the way in SA – the right wing restoration via the collusion of the ruling party with imperialism is complete.

BLF rejects the finding of guilty by the Brazilian court in respect of Lula. There can be no real justice via colonial institutions like courts. Obviously the court erred both in its finding and its shockingly harsh sentence of 12 years imprisonment – deliberately so. The allegations of corruption against Lula were empty and moreover concocted by imperialism. Absolutely no court dispensing true people’s justice would have convicted Lula.

BLF recognises the role that the left has played in defence of Lula throughout these trying times. Your commitment to keep the peoples president out of jail, by literally stopping him from handing himself over, is admirable. We draw strength from the actions of the left led by the Workers Party (PT) and the people of Brazil in defence of Lula.

BLF sends its revolutionary solidarity to all of the progressive forces in Brazil. The struggle continues!

Cyril’s IPPs benefit US companies but harm black workers

The United States (US) Embassy has congratulated an American company which was awarded one of the renewable energy deals at Eskom on 4 April this week. The speed at which the Minister of Energy, Jeff Radebe, moved to sign agreements with 27 Independent Power Producers (IPPs) shows that white monopoly capital (WMC) has captured the state. The shocking truth is that the majority of the companies getting cuts out of the R1.4 trillion deal are part of WMC and to this end are US and European companies.

President Zuma was persecuted by the racist civil society organizations and the London controlled political parties that demonized the nuclear deal on the basis its supposed non affordability. It is now clear that WMC and imperialism wanted the deal for themselves in the form of IPPs

On Wednesday the US government, through its embassy in Pretoria congratulated Solar Reserve for clinching one of the lucrative contracts. It is now evident that those who shouted the loudest about state capture were only unhappy because they believed the state was getting out of their grip.

The IPPs will cost 40 000 jobs! These are black people who will suffer. This is the “new dawn” of Cyril Ramaphosa. The only stumbling block to this mass looting by WMC was President Zuma. Now he is gone from office and the floodgates are open.

Black First Land First (BLF) supports the call by the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) that Cyril Ramaphosa must instruct Jeff Radebe to stop the IPPs without further ado. We call on society to mobilize to stop the unaffordable IPPs.

BLF reiterates its call for the racist, sexist Mark Lamberti to be removed from the Eskom Board of Directors, forthwith.

It is clear that if we don’t stop Cyril Ramaphosa, before we know it the country will be gone completely to Europe and the US.

BLF-SM calls on all students to support the President of Free Education

BLF-SM calls on all students to support the President of Free Education

Black First Land First Student Movement (BLF-SM) calls on all students to come out in their numbers to support former President Jacob Zuma as he faces the antiblack racist courts.

Comrade Jacob Zuma is facing lynching by white monopoly capital (WMC) for being a pro-black president; the custodian of radical economic transformation (RET); as well as for giving free education!

WMC is not happy. It has responded by making our poor parents pay for Comrade Zuma’s free education to the nation. To this end value added tax (VAT) has been increased to 15% as an appropriate punishment.

We note that we have received free education at a time when students around the country are facing the white justice of the courts. In this regard they frequently stand trial on bogus charges; are subjected to unfair trials; are generally prejudiced in their rights as accused and arrested persons; often receive shockingly harsh sentences; spend unreasonably long periods of time in police custody awaiting trail; and are even placed under house arrest for no compelling reason. Moreover, many students experience suspensions and expulsions and to this end an infringement of their right to education.

The oppressed in this context must unite and defend not only the student warriors and all revolutionaries but also all black people. As black students who have led this struggle for free education we shall continue to defend this gain and prevent its reversal. We know that key to this task is the solidarity of the oppressed. We commit ourselves towards realizing this solidarity. To this end we shall defend our president who gave us free education. The struggle continues.

Today we call on the black oppressed, particularly the students and beneficiaries of free education, to take to the streets on Friday the 6th of April 2018 in defence of Comrade Zuma at the Durban High Court where he faces empty charges concocted in service of WMC. We stand by our President of Free Education, 100%!
