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

Last week Jacob Zuma visited the Sweetwaters shack settlement near Orange Farm in Johannesburg. He informed the nation that his shock at seeing human beings living like pigs had almost reduced him to tears. He also visited the Siyathemba settlement in Balfour where he, like a typical bullying ward councillor, berated angry residents for asking the questions that mattered. read full story / add a comment

région sud de l'afrique / luttes dans la communauté / communiqué de presse Wednesday May 26, 2010 15:22 por Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front   image 1 image
Ce qui suit est une communication urgente émise au nom de, et en solidarité avec le Mouvement des Sans Terres (LPM) et desautres habitants du bidonville de Protea-Sud, à Soweto. Il est basé sur des renseignements obtenus par téléphone et par des conversations en face-à-face avec des membres du LPM après les violentes attaques contre eux la nuit dernière [24 mai 2010]. Il semble y avoir toujours de la confusion autour de ce qui s’est passé, et les détails sont encore fragmentaires. Nous rendrons disponibles les nouvelles informations sur la situation au fur et à mesure que nous les recevrons, de même que toute correction factuelle qui s’avérerait nécessaire.

région sud de l'afrique / luttes dans la communauté / presse non anarchiste Wednesday May 26, 2010 15:05 por Bongani Xezwi
Protea du Sud est l'un de ces « quartiers informels » (bidonville) qui n'a pas encore bénéficié au cours des 16 dernières années de la démocratie. À l'heure actuelle, les gens de Protea-sud vivent toujours sans aucun service (eau, électricité et sanitaires). Hier, la communauté qui vit dans des maisons à loyer modéré a décidé de débrancher l'électricité que les gens des habitations informelles avaient connecté dans leurs baraques en tôle. Ils sont allés dans le quartier pour débrancher et battre les gens qui avaient connecté l'électricité dans leurs baraques. En conséquence, deux personnes ont reçu des coups de feu et une est décédée sur place tandis que l'autre a été transportée d’urgence à l'hôpital. read full story / add a comment

While residents in the Soweto suburb of Protea South clash with shack dwellers over electricity, members of the Landless Peoples Movement are urging both sides to rise above infighting and unite against a government which has failed to provide sufficient services throughout the past sixteen years. read full story / add a comment

Protea South is one of the informal settlements that has not yet benefited in the last 16 years of democracy. As it stands, people in Protea South are still living without services (water, electricity and toilets). Yesterday the community that lives in the bond houses decided to disconnect the electricity that the people from the informal settlement connected into their tin shacks. They went around disconnecting and beating people who connected the electricity within their shacks. As a result, two people were shot and one died on the spot while the other one was rushed to hospital. read full story / add a comment

The following is an urgent communication issued in solidarity with the Landless Peoples Movement (LPM) and other shack-dwellers of Protea South, Soweto. It is based on information obtained by telephonic and face-to-face conversations held with LPM members following violent attacks against them last night. There still seems to be confusion, however, and details are sketchy. Updates on the situation will be made available as and when they are received, as will be any factual corrections.

Em setembro de 2009, no entanto, alguns líderes foram atacados no assentamento Kennedy Road por um grupo armado que entoava lemas étnicos. A polícia se negou a ajudar o AbM e somente estava presente para desarmar a resistência espontânea à multidão. Pessoas morreram durante a tentativa de defesa contra o grupo e as casas de mais de trinta líderes da AbM foram destruídas e saqueadas depois que os dirigentes locais do partido que está no poder tomaram o controle do assentamento. Os dirigentes partidários, tanto na cidade como na província, atacaram o movimento com uma linguagem extremamente forte nos dias posteriores ao ataque, condenado-o por sua exigência perante o governo para que o mesmo declarasse inconstitucional a Lei de Assentamentos Precários e acusando-o de se opor ao desenvolvimento. Afirmou-se aos oficiais da polícia e do estado, bem como aos repórteres, que as ONGs estrangeiras financiavam o movimento com o objetivo de deter o desenvolvimento para que, deste modo, os africanos continuassem pobres e mantivessem seu acesso ao financiamento.

Sin embargo, en septiembre de 2009, algunos líderes fueron atacados en el asentamiento Kennedy Road por una turba armada que coreaba lemas étnicos. La policía se negó a ayudar al AbM y solo se hizo presente para desarmar la resistencia espontánea a la turba. Gente murió durante el intento de montar una defensa contra la muchedumbre, y las casas de más de treinta líderes del AbM fueron destruidas y saqueadas después de que los dirigentes locales del partido en el poder tomaran control del asentamiento. Los dirigentes partidistas, tanto en la ciudad como en la provincia, atacaron al movimiento en un lenguaje extremadamente fuerte en los días posteriores al ataque, condenándolo por haber exigido al gobierno que declarase la Ley de Asentamientos Precarios inconstitucional y acusando al movimiento de oponerse al desarrollo. Se les dijo a oficiales de la policía y del estado así como a periodistas que las ONG extranjeras estaban financiando al movimiento con el fin de detener el desarrollo, para que, de esa manera, los africanos continuaran siendo pobres y mantuvieran su acceso al financiamiento.

While 2010 Organising Committee CEO, Danny Jordaan, compares the staging of such an event to a "second liberation", we shouldn't be surprised if those who are struggling for a meaningful notion of citizenship continue their public protests during the tournament. Undoubtedly, they will be deemed unpatriotic for disrupting the whole PC-PR-Potemkin village atmosphere. They will horrify the press whose accreditation with Fifa hangs on not engaging in conduct that detracts from the sporting focus. The police will, as is routine, shoot at them with buckshot, rubber bullets and teargas. read full story / add a comment

Even with all eyes on the World Cup, movements of the workers and the poor in South Africa must not forget that another challenge looms: the local government elections of 2011. And with the approach of elections, we are already seeing the return of the wave of authoritarians and opportunists of the left, all singing the same old song: if they are elected, they will somehow be able to do something about the problems of the workers and the poor. And while they may remix the song over and over, the tune remains the same: individual leaders, experts, or vanguards can find the answer; the mass movements of the people cannot liberate themselves. read full story / add a comment

We, The People’s United Democratic Movement [PUDEMO] youth league, extends our condolences to the Jele family, Swaziland Federation of Trade Unions, PUDEMO and the entire progressive force for the sad loss of one of our finest, highly disciplined and committed cadre of our movement.

May Day celebration is a day that is celebrated by workers all over the world, and should be without any interference of the state. Yet during the celebration our members where harassed, detained, arrested and killed. read full story / add a comment
