Van het wereldkampioenschap voetbal moet worden vastgesteld wat voor namaak het is. De ZACF veroordeelt de onbeschaamdheid en hypocrisie van de regering, waarbij het de gelegenheid presenteert als een uitzonderlijke kans voor het economisch en sociaal verheffen van degenen die in Zuid-Afrika (en de rest van het continent) wonen.

El Mundial de Fútbol 2010 de la FIFA debe ser expuesto como la completa farsa que es. El ZACF condena duramente el atrevimiento y la hipocresía del gobierno al presentar el evento como una oportunidad “única en la vida” para el desarrollo de aquellos que viven en Sudáfrica (y el resto del continente).

southern africa / economy / non-anarchist press Friday June 18, 2010 03:48 por Dale T. McKinley
Offering an unapologetic public critique of the FIFA Soccer World Cup at the height of the collective frenzy of positive expectation, feel-good nationalism and general public excitement that now exists in our country is a risky thing to do. But it is a risk that needs to be taken precisely because, no matter what the context, myths always need to be separated from realities. In the case of the ‘greatest show on earth’, leaving aside the very real beauty and enjoyment of the game of soccer, the myth-making has created a situation akin to inhaling tik – a short-lived high/euphoria that obscures all reality, followed by a rapid, depressing ‘come down’ back to that reality. read full story / add a comment

All’ombra delle montagne, 36 squadre provenienti da 40 differenti quartieri si sono date appuntamento ieri per giocare al gioco che amano di più: il CALCIO. Il 13 giugno 2010, si sono giocati alla grande i primi mondiali di calcio dei poveri sul campo di Avendole, vicino alla stadio di Athlone a Città del Capo. Di primo mattino, i primi pulmini con le squadre di calcio sono giunti da tutta Città del Capo per disputare il loro primo mondiale dei poveri. Erano tutti entusiasti e l’atmosfera era quella giusta, nonostante le pessime previsioni del tempo. [English] read full story / add a comment

At the shadow side of the mountain, 36 teams from 40 different communities came together yesterday to play the one thing they like the most: SOCCER!
On the 13th of June 2010, the Poor People’s World Cup successfully kicked-off their first day of matches at the Avendale soccer fields, next to Athlone stadium in Cape Town. Early in the morning, the first minibuses with soccer teams arrived from all over Cape Town to play their first games in this Poor People’s tournament. Everybody was excited and the atmosphere was amazing, considering the bad weather forecasts. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

A Copa do Mundo de 2010 deve ser exposta publicamente como a grande farsa que é. A Frente Anarquista Comunista Zabalaza (ZACF), da África do Sul, condena veementemente o cinismo e a hipocrisia do governo sul-africano que apresenta este momento como uma oportunidade única "apenas uma vez na vida" para a melhoria da situação econômica e social das pessoas que vivem no país (assim como no resto do continente).

Mistrzostwa Świata w Piłce Nożnej są oszustwem, które należy ujawnić. ZACF potępia bezczelność i hipokryzję rządu, który przedstawia mistrzostwa jako „jedyną w życiu” okazję, by polepszyć społeczny i ekonomiczny poziom życia Południowych Afrykańczyków oraz mieszkańców pozostałej części kontynentu. To jasne, że mistrzostwa stanowią „okazję” tylko dla globalnego i lokalnego kapitału i dla elity rządzącej w RPA. Wszystko wskazuje na to, że to wydarzenie przyniesie katastrofalne konsekwencje dla biednych i pracujących w RPA, co zresztą już ma miejsce.

Questi mondiali di calcio 2010 sono una vergogna e bisogna denunciarlo. Il ZACF condanna fortemente l’arroganza e l’ipocrisia del governo sud-africano nel presentare questa occasione come una opportunità “irripetibile” per il miglioramento delle condizioni economiche e sociali degli abitanti del Sud Africa (e di tutto il continente). Quello che invece è del tutto chiaro è che è stata ed è una “opportunità” solo per gli appetiti del capitale globale e nazionale nonché per le classi governanti del Sud Africa. Infatti, l’evento dei mondiali ha avuto ed avrà conseguenze devastanti per i poveri e per la classe lavoratrice del Sud Africa – un processo in corso ed invisibile.

The 2010 Soccer World Cup must be exposed for the utter sham that it is. The ZACF strongly condemns the audacity and hypocrisy of the government in presenting the occasion as a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for the economic and social upliftment of those living in South Africa (and the rest of the continent). What is glaringly clear is that the “opportunity” is and continues to be that of a feeding-frenzy for global and domestic capital and the South African ruling elite. In fact, if anything, the event is more likely to have devastating consequences for South Africa’s poor and working class – a process that is already underway.

Jacob Zuma visited Balfour about two weeks ago, for the second time, where there were some of the most militant service delivery protest last year in July 2009 and even this year. The first time when he was in Balfour, he said he was there to investigate for himself what is happening. This time around, when he was there he said he is there also to investigate. So, for how long will Jacob Zuma be investigating rather than taking an action? It makes me wonder whether he was not trying to cool the people of Balfour and others that he visited so that service delivery protests don’t erupt. read full story / add a comment

At 04:30 on Monday, 31 May 2010, in international waters, Israeli navy commandos invaded an international humanitarian aid boat, the Mavi Marmara, which was part of an aid flotilla travelling to the Gaza Strip. The troops fired on unarmed civilians, killing at least 19 aid workers and injuring dozens more. A range of South African civil society organizations have expressed outrage at this latest Israeli attack, which yet again reflects Israel’s arrogant and flagrant disregard for international law and human rights.

We call on all South Africans to spare even a few moments to join the solidarity vigil outside the Department’s offices in Pretoria. read full story / add a comment

Although the Constitution protects the rights of whistle-blowers, and we have laws that are meant to promote their rights (such as the Protected Disclosures Act), in reality there is not much protection for whistle-blowers and such people face huge challenges.

Εξυμνώντας τον σωστά, για την εναντίωση του στον φυλετισμό, την συνεισφορά του στους απελευθερωτικούς αγώνες στην N.
