southern africa / community struggles / non-anarchist press Wednesday June 09, 2010 20:27 por Lifu Nhlapo
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

southern africa / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Tuesday June 01, 2010 21:17 por Coalition for a Free Palestine   image 1 image
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

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.

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.

Déclaration anarchiste sud africaine sur le Massacre de Marikana.
Déclaration conjointe publiée par : Tokologo Anarchist Collective, Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front et Inkululeko Wits Anarchist Collective.

Les capitalistes et les politiciens coupables! Mettons fin à la brutalité policière.
Pas de justice, pas de paix.

Ni Zuma [NDT. président de la République lié à l’ANC], ni Malema [ex-président de la ligue de jeunesse de l’ANC ayant alimenté des tensions raciales], ni LONMIN [NDT. minière britannique]!

La Constitution promet les droits politiques et l’égalité. Il est très clair que les patrons et les politiciens font exactement ce qu’ils désirent. Ils marchent sur la tête du peuple. C’est démontré par la tuerie de la police sur les grévistes de la mine de Marikana de la minière Lonmin.

Once we stop thinking as individuals and start thinking as a working class group, change will become possible.

Our country’s conditions have gotten worse and worse in many ways. There is corruption, inequality and limited freedom for the masses. Someone has to stand up and say “Enough is enough! We need better education, more jobs and people-driven development plans.”

We are calling for change now!

imageÁfrica do Sul: Está na Hora da Classe Trabalhadora e dos Pobres Despertarem Dec 13 by Lucien van der Walt 0 comments

O nosso país está numa confusão. A fome, a pobreza, a exploração e a injustiça espreitam.

A classe trabalhadora e os pobres deparam, a cada passo, com os muros altos da injustiça, as cadeias do desemprego e as balas e os cassetetes da polícia.

Os conflitos agitam o país e as esperanças que brilhavam em 1994 estão a desaparecer, envelhecidas, enferrujando sob as águas da ganância, da opressão e da desigualdade; essas esperanças são como um sonho que desaparece quando se desperta para uma realidade sombria.

A questão nacional, as nossas profundas divisões de raça e nacionalidade, continuam sem solução: os políticos, pretos e brancos, pioram ainda a situação com o objectivo de obterem votos.
