southern africa / gender / press release Friday June 13, 2008 - 18:57 by ZACF Gender Working Group
We, Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF), were recently shocked to hear about another homophobic murder in Johannesburg and extend our sympathy and solidarity to the LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex) community of South Africa, that has had to suffer from oppression and discrimination so often within a short period of time. The murder of drag queen Daisy Dube is yet another horrible chauvinistic murder and adds to the escalating number of people killed in homophobic violence in South Africa in recent times, including 10 lesbians killed since just 2006. ... read full story / add a comment

[ Nederlands] [ Ελληνικά] As the media, the politicians and the "experts" rack their brains in search of the cause of the "criminality" and "xenophobia" that has killed 42 people in 10 days and driven 15 000 from their homes, organisations of the working class have come closer to the truth than any of these wise men and women.

We verwelkomen en steunen het besluit van de South African Transport and Allied Workers Union dat hun arbeiders de wapens op een schip uit China die bestemd zijn voor Zimbabwe niet zullen verladen noch zullen transporteren. Dit is een zeer bemoedigend teken van arbeidersklasse solidariteit en internationalisme, en we hopen dat zulke acties inderdaad zullen voorkomen dat deze wapens hun bestemming bereiken – het leger van Zimbabwe. ... read full story / add a comment

Si tratta di un segnale incoraggiante della solidarietà di classe e dell'internazionalismo, e speriamo che tali azioni possano veramente impedire la consegna di queste armi all'esercito dello Zimbabwe.

Dies ist ein sehr ermutigendes Zeichen von Solidarität innerhalb der ArbeiterInnenklasse und ein Zeichen von Internationalismus, und wir hoffen, dass solche Aktionen in der Tat verhindern, dass diese Waffenlieferung ihr Ziel erreicht - das Simbabwische Militär. ... read full story / add a comment

southern africa / miscellaneous / press release Friday March 21, 2008 - 02:46 by Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front
South Africa is said to have one of the most progressive constitutions in the world. It enshrines the rights of every person, of every background, from workers and immigrants to women and homosexuals. As such you would think that, especially for people from oppressed groups, South Africa would be a safe haven. ... read full story / add a comment
southern africa / gender / press release Saturday March 08, 2008 - 01:23 by Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front
All too often across South Africa women are assaulted and abused at the hands of sexist and chauvinist men. If a woman wears long pants, she may be stripped and humiliated; if she wears a mini-skirt she may be assaulted; if she loves another woman she may be raped and/ or murdered; or all of the above just for being a woman. In this country, in which everyone is so proud of their so-called progressive constitution, a woman is not free to be herself unless the image of herself conforms to that narrow-minded image of how a woman should act and behave held by so many bigoted men. ... 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.
