      Commemorating the heroes of Soweto


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      An article that ran on the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) web site the day before African Liberation Day asserted that Thabo Mbeki of ANC begged Tony Blair of the racist UK to insure that South Africa becomes a non racist state. This is a clear indication of the forces in charge of the neo-colonial state that ANC fronts for...and let us not forget that the UK state is a subordinate state to the US...and we all know how non racist the US is don't we?

      At any rate nothing puts the need to continue the struggle, in all its forms, including armed responses where required, than activities of such puppets as those in the ANC government, as well as in other parts of Africa, such as Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and so forth...these half men and women are parasites who suck on the blood and other fluids of the global African population. They find their equivalent in functionaries in UK like Baroness Amos and Condoleeza Rice in the US...not to mention the anti-African activity of such supposed "black"-oriented organizations such as Trans-Africa and the NAACP...particularly as relating to the land struggle in Zimbabwe. The national NAACP for example has suppressed their own report on the 2002 elections in Zimbabwe precisely because it states that the elections were fair and transparent.

      Accordingly, the best way to honor and continue the struggle of the young martyrs of Soweto (June 16, 1976) is to intensify the class struggle in Africa. As Omowale (Malcolm X) taught us, we can never be free if we do not rid ourselves of the toms (fifth columnists, collaborators, traitors or whatever you wish to call them) among us.

      Mbeki calls on UK support for a non-racial SA



      May 24, 2006, 19:00



      President Thabo Mbeki has called on British opinion makers to help build a non-racial South Africa. Addressing the group in London, the president said South Africa would continue to face a serious poverty crisis if it failed to address racism in the country. And while the opinion makers endorsed the country's political and economic policies, they raised concern about what they called the "succession uncertainty".

      South Africa was under the spotlight with influential multinational companies, diplomats and top international media personalities eager to know where the country is going. South Africa, Mbeki said, is still caught in the grip of racism. "Let's make a success of building a non-racial society out of this population of South Africa, black and white. We have to do what we have to do, but we need your support", added Mbeki.

      They have described South Africa as a beacon of hope for the rest of the world. Mike Terry, the former executive secretary of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, said: "Living in a society where we have a lot of racism, it's also an inspiration to look at your country to see how it's possible to create a non-racial society".

      High expectations for SA
      Zenaib Badawi, a BBC talks show host, said: "I think people do expect a lot of South Africa, not only to deliver domestically for its own people to redress the many years of apartheid, but also to act as a senior African voice on the regional stage as well as the international arena". But while the country's policies have provided some level of investor comfort, the succession debate is in the spotlight.

      The irony of the succession certainty being sought by the British opinion makers is that Tony Blair, the British prime minister, himself has kept the nation speculating about when he'll step down. Be that as it may, it's clear from discussions here that South Africa's succession debate is under intense international scrutiny.

      I agree, brother. Not only South Africa, but all Africa must find quick and definate solutions to the racially generated difficulties. I fear that without outside intervention, our people will remain in bondage to poverty, disease and racism for centuries to come.

      Occupied South Africa

      Thank you for the good post comrade.I was in Azania (Occupied South Africa) at the invitation of the PAC of Azania Youth League at the commemoration of the Soweto Uprising.I agree with you that racism is entrenched in South Africa.After all these years of independence nothing has changed to addressed conditions that used to exist during the apartheid era.The means of production are still in teh hands of the whites.I had an opportunity to tour the shanty towns of Sowet such as Mandela square and I was shocked at the appalling and squalour conditions which our brothers and sistas are still living.Thabo Mbeki must not ask Tony Blair to correct racism.The people themselves should demand a pan african government not the neo colonial government which they installed.The masses are the agents of change.RISE UP against apartheid ,is this the new south africa you libearated.Land to the people now,iAfrica iLizwe Lethu

      The only realistic way of looking at Izwe lethu (our land) is an extension of the Anglo-Dutch Occupying government that has continued to exploit our land and resources. Anyone expecting to see revolutionary change in a political entity created by and maintained by the very same powers that controlled it prior to so-called Black rule, is naive. The whole dialogue in our land is control by the AbeLungu (Europeans) and Asians. All Media, Education, Industry and Culture are from the Euro-Centric frame of reference. African traditional ways are being minimized and criminalized. With few exceptions the Euro-Centric government has outlawed much of our culture and allowed foreigners to determine what is correct. As the Settlers are left largely unchallenged they are able to close public roads, arrest Zimbabweans with impunity. As they still control the minds of the elite who attempt to gain acceptance by internalizing all that is European. Go to a pubic event and the cuisine European and Asian. Everything African is marginalized with few exceptions. We are taught to forgive the Europeans for past and future misdeeds. Our people are apologetic for any actions or comments by the Settlers. The Social Engineering that keeps our people subservient is an accepted part of life. The Hector Peterson Museum is built on the same lot as "Uncle Tom’s" Community Centre that was built by the Apartheid government. Being degraded by the Europeans is a part of daily existence. Take the case of the president's blood test:

      “Mbeki's 'black blood burnt'” 03/12/2004 22:07 - (SA)
      Lindsay Barnes and Sapa
      Pietermaritzburg - Blood donated by President Thabo Mbeki in public awareness drives for the blood transfusion service has routinely been incinerated because he is black.
      The South African National Blood Service decided at an urgent meeting with the health department on Friday to scrap its policy of using race to determine the level of risk of HIV infection in donated blood.

      The mindset of our people is still in the colonial stage. African people are told that the land belongs to everyone working it.
      Read the Freedom Charter: http://www.anc.org.za/ancdocs/history/charter.html
      The Europeans and Asians exercise Economic Power far greater than their numbers and due to the lack of Nationalist principles, this is accepted. This so-called milestone was the work of Joe Slovo and Bram Fischer, two Europeans. The great Mangaliso Sobukwe challenged this travesty and would form the PAC.

      Our people have been lulled into a false sense of power because of the manner in which the BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) program has been promoted as a cure for the foreign occupation the land. The only redemption is the youth and those yet to be born will grow and learn without fear. The politicians see foreign investment as the answer to problems but never discuss how this will return our land. Abantu bakithi (our people) have not been able to claim the entire land because the compromise for so-called Black government only allowed claims dating back to 1913 we were given only ten years to file and complete claims. All of these travesties occur because the war was not won. The Elitist have joined with the Europeans and Asians to keep the masses ignorant of Freedom, Nationalism and Power. Dr. Death (Wouter Basson) has been defended by Rolihlahla (nelson) Mandela. The terrorist who massacred our children in Soweto are still on the payroll and collecting pensions.

      The Public Relations machine only promotes those who compromise i.e. Preachers and Athletes and Minstrels as they do not represent a threat to European and Asian interests. When the people finally decided to go back to the original names the European’s were consulted and expressed what could and couldn’t be changed, of course this didn’t occur when they made changes. We are referred as the African people of the land as if someone else has a legitimate claim. Imagine Chinese being marginalized in China, this doesn’t happen because the Chinese “are” the nation. Our people have yet to reached this stage, because foreigners are considered citizens and other Africans as considered foreigners. Euro-Validation is the driving force for governance and culture. Josiah Henson would have felt very much at home here, but there will be a 180 turn in the future. No earthly power is capable of preventing our taking back our land.

      Having a clear picture of the difficulties facing us is the first step for ridding ourselves of the problem. Compromising means that you have not achieved victory, which is the only option. These are some of the contradictions that we face but Africans will ultimately prevail as we educate and elevate. Azibuye emasisweni
