About a month ago I stood with some 200 striking farm workers in South Africa's Hex River Valley, a rich agricultural region that produces table grapes for export. The workers were on strike against severe pay cuts and outsourcing, which came about when a major fruit export company took over the farm from its previous owner. The workers were a mixed group. Some were Zimbabwean migrants, but the majority were Xhosa speakers from the more impoverished Eastern Cape, where 72 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line. Most of them currently lived in the valley's informal settlements, expanses of matchbox houses and zinc shacks on the dusty ground between the grape farms. As we marched toward the farm, the workers began to sing struggle songs praising the African National Congress (ANC) and the role of struggle leaders like Oliver Tambo and Chris Hani. read full story / add a comment

The massacre of the Marikana/Lonmin workers has inserted itself within South Africa's national consciousness, not so much through the analysis, commentary and reporting in its wake. Instead, it has been the power of the visual images of police armed with awesome fire power gunning down these workers, together with images of bodies lying defeated and lifeless, that has aroused a national outcry and wave of condemnation. These images have also engendered international protest actions outside South African embassies. In themselves these images communicate a politics about ‘official state power.’ It is bereft of moral concern, de-humanized, brutal and at odds with international human rights standards; in these ways it is no different from apartheid era state sponsored violence and technologies of oppressive rule. Moreover, the images of police officers walking through the Marikana/Lonmin killing field, with a sense of professional accomplishment in its aftermath, starkly portrays a scary reality: the triumph of South Africa's state in its brutal conquest of its enemies, its citizens.

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. read full story / add a comment

While any human being with any sense of justice should be appalled by what happened at Marikana it would, however, be a mistake to view it as an isolated incident that emerged out of the blue. read full story / add a comment

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] read full story / add a comment

southern africa / workplace struggles / non-anarchist press Thursday August 23, 2012 20:38 byLeonard Gentle
The story of Marikana has so far been painted shallowly as an inter-union spat. In the first few days after the fateful Thursday and the shock and horror of watching people being massacred on TV there have correctly been howls of anger and grief. Of course no one wants to take responsibility because to do so would be to acknowledge blame. Some pundits have even gone the way of warning at anyone “pointing figures” or “stoking anger.” That buffoon, Julius Malema, stepped forward as if scripted, and promptly lent credibility to those warnings. So Jacob Zuma's setting up of an inquiry and his call for a week of mourning for the deceased and their families could come across as “statesmanlike.” read full story / add a comment

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. read full story / add a comment

Joint statement on the Marikana Massacre issued by the Tokologo Anarchist Collective, Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front and Inkululeko Wits Anarchist Collective The Constitution promises political rights and equality. It is quite clear that the bosses and politicians do exactly as they wish. They walk on the faces of the people. This is shown by the police killings of strikers at Lonmin’s Marikana mine.
