The Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF) is angered by the killing of a second working class activist youth by the Community Policing Forum (CPF) in Sebokeng in less than a year.

In July of last year Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) activist Mathafeni Majobe was killed by members of the CPF after partaking in a service delivery protest in Sebokeng. This time the victim was Teboho “Diventsha” Tsotetsi, who was stabbed to death in front of his parents on Wednesday 4 March by members of the CPF for refusing to withdraw charges he had laid against those same CPF patrollers, who had severely beaten him and stolen his cell phone and wallet the previous Friday. ... read full story / add a comment

Declaração conjunta sobre o massacre de Marikana emitida pelo Tokologo Anarchist Collective, a Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front e o Inkululeko Wits Anarchist Collective. A constituição sulafricana promete direitos políticos e igualdade. Está bastante claro que os patrões e políticos fazem o que querem. Pisam no rosto das pessoas. Isso foi demonstrado pela matança de grevistas na mina Marikana de Lonmin.

La Costituzione del paese garantisce diritti politici ed uguaglianza. E' abbastanza evidente che i padroni ed i politici fanno invece esattamente quello che vogliono. Ci calpestano. Come è stato dimostrato dalle uccisioni da parte della polizia di minatori in sciopero alla miniera di Marikana della Lonmin. [English] [Français] [Ελληνικά]

imageBernard Sigamoney, Durban Indian revolutionary syndicalist Dec 12 by Lucien van der Walt 0 comments

A global movement, the anarchist and syndicalist tradition has influenced people from all walks of life. A notable figure was Bernard L.E. Sigamoney, born in 1888. The grandson of indentured Indian labourers, who arrived in South Africa in the 1870s, he became a school teacher with a working class outlook.

imageOur History of Struggle: the 1980s “Workerist-Populist” Debate Revisited Dec 09 by Warren McGregor 0 comments

Today the terms “populism” and “workerism” are widely thrown about in South African political circles. Often, these terms and others (“syndicalism,” “ultra-left,” “counter-revolutionary,” “anti-majoritarian” …) have no meaning: they are just labels used to silence critics. SA Communist Party (SACP) leaders do this often. But in the 1980s, “populism” and “workerism” referred to two rival positions battling for the soul of the militant unions.

These debates, thirty years on, remain very relevant: let us revisit them, and learn. Today’s radical National Union of Metalworkers of SA (NUMSA) was part of the “workerist” camp, while its key rival, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) was identified with “populism.” The early battles over the direction of the Congress of SA Trade Unions (COSATU) still echo today, although there is no longer a clear “workerist” camp.

imageThe 1976 Struggle and the Emancipation of the Future Dec 06 by Bongani Maponyane 0 comments

The massacre of South African school children in 1976 – for protesting for instruction in their native languages and for a proper curriculum – continues to be remembered and to influence us today. It showed the brutality of the apartheid state and it left scars still felt by people today.

The challenges faced by youth today are different to that experienced in 1976. This does not mean everything has changed. We need to look to history to learn about and not to repeat mistakes made. But we also look to history to provide us with inspiration. We need to revisit the spirit of the youth of 1976 and copy their courage – to overcome these issues facing our young people today. We need to be the change that we want to see.

imageTraitor to the Working Class Majority: Cyril Ramaphosa Dec 03 by Siyabulela Hulu-Hulu 0 comments

It is said we live in a democratic country; but, believe me it is for the chosen few. Current Deputy President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, was once widely considered a hero of the working class. Today he is a hypocrite and traitor to us, the majority.
