BLF supports the NUM march against AngloGold Ashanti

BLF supports the NUM march against AngloGold Ashanti

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on society to support the protest march by the National Union of Mine Workers (NUM) in defence of 8 500 jobs that may be lost at AngloGold Ashanti. BLF believes that the mass retrechments by the company, where Sipho Pityana is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), are part of the attack on the economy by white monopoly capital in its campaign for regime change.

Pityana is a vocal regime change agent. The plan is to turn the workers against President Zuma by putting the blame of joblessness on him instead of the unpatriotic mining industry. These retrenchments are about sabotaging the Mining Charter. Pityana is a leading opponent of the Mining Charter. To this end he is now sacrificing black workers in his evil scheme to try and stop the Mining Charter from being implemented.

BLF calls on NUM to demand worker’s ownership immediately. Furthermore, BLF asks NUM to put AngloGold Ashanti on terms. If they retrench workers, then the workers will be mobilized to occupy and take over the mines. The truth is that the mining bosses need the workers and the profits more that the workers need to be under the exploitative employment of the mining bosses. Now is the time to demand what is ours and be owners of the mines ourselves.

The call by NUM is correct and progressive. BLF says; defend the jobs! Implement the Mining Charter now!

Gungubele must shut up!

Gungubele must shut up!

Black First Land First (BLF) does not recognise the minor African National Congress (ANC) politician, Mondli Gungubele. This person is a failed mayor of Ekurhuleni. He is now making noise so as to seek recognition as one of the lead agents of white monopoly capital.

We know that he is being paid to test the possibility of removing President Zuma; and to stand against Radical Economic Transformation in order to maintain and perpetuate the current status quo where whites own everything.

Gungubele is a noisy, ineffective, irrelevant agent of white monopoly capital. BLF will not dignify his comments which are completely out of line and calculated to denigrate the President of the country.

At no stage has BLF ever said that our fight with racists has got anything to do with the President of the country. Gungubele is a cheap liar. He must shut up! We have serious matters to deal with so as to transform the country. The return the stolen land, mineral rights and dignity of our people are of paramount importance.

Land or Death!

BLF press statement – ABSA, SARB, Mining Charter, media coverup of corruption

24 June 2017
BLF Head Office,
Ghandi Square,
Johannesburg

Introduction

Today, South Africa is facing a grave danger of being brainwashed by the white owned media with the assistance of the opposition parties into believing white propaganda. The nation has been lied to just like under apartheid where most of our people were made to believe that the freedom fighters were terrorists as a result of the propaganda of the apartheid media. Today again, those who stole our land and kept us as slaves on farms, their kitchens and mines are again using their media to make sure our people do not see the truth.

BLF held successful meeting with Venezuela embassy

BLF held successful meeting with Venezuela embassy

Today, a delegtion of five Black First Land First (BLF) members led by the President of the movement, Andile Mngxitama, met the Ambassador of Venezuela Mrs Mairini Moreno Merinda and Deputy head of Mission Mr Omar Berrotena in Pretoria.

The meeting was at the request of BLF as part of its anti imperialism activities. During the meeting, BLF was informed about the regimen change campaigns in Venezuela by the opposition parties who are sponsored and directed by imperialism. The regime change efforts in Venezuela by the opposition parties is directed at stopping the Radical Economic Transformation in that society.

BLF also learnt about the unreasonble and false demands of the opposition parties which are all calculated to prolong the economic terrorism driven by the United States of American (USA). The revolution in Venezuela is in danger. The prolonged economic terrorism is wearing the population out. The USA funded demonstrations and protests are getting more and more violent.

BLF on its part has expressed 100% support for the Bolivarian Revolution. We believe that the regime change template being pursued in Venezuela is the same as the one that is pursued by the opposition parties and the pro imperialist faction of the ANC which is led by the corrupt Pravin Gordhan and the murderer of the Marikana workers, Cyril Ramaphosa. Imperialism must be defeated in Venezuela as well as in South Africa (SA).

BLF shall be undertaking further campaigns to popularise the “Hands Off Venezuela” campaign, including engaging in protest action at the USA embassy. Last month BLF sent a letter to President Maduro expressing its support for the withdrawal of Venezuela from the Organisation of American States (OAS). The attack on Venezuela is the same attack that is awaiting South Africans when we take back the land. Furthermore, BLF shall he countering the lies told by the white owned media about what’s going on in Venezuela.

The meeting ended on a high note where both parties agreed on further engagement to defend revolutionary government of Venezuela.
