The following analysis was presented by a member of the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF) at the Khanya College organised Seminar on the 2009 Election Results, held in Johannesburg on Sunday 10 May 2009. The topic of the seminar was “What do the 2009 Election results mean for the South African working class?”.
There were speakers from the following organisations present: Bolshevik Study Circles & Che Guevara Film Club, Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF), General Industries Workers Union of South Africa (GIWUSA), Soweto Concerned Residents (S.C.R–A.P.F), NKUZI – Fieldworker of Farmworkers' Programme and Kathorus Concerned Residents (KCR)
It should be noted that - owing to the constraints of time allocated for this presentation - this is by no means a complete analysis of the 2009 elections, and what the ANC victory and Zuma administration means for the poor and working class of the region. It serves only to raise some of what we believe to be important issues for consideration going forward. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment
southern africa / miscellaneous / opinion / analysis Thursday April 23, 2009 14:09 byLucien van der Walt
The renewed Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) support for the ruling nationalist African National Congress (ANC) has seen the unions dedicate organisers over the last few weeks to ensuring an “overwhelming” ANC victory in the national elections on the 22 April 2009.

How valid is such an approach, and what are the tasks of the working class in the current period? read full story / add a comment
southern africa / economy / opinion / analysis Monday April 20, 2009 18:48 byLucien Van Der Walt
One of the great weaknesses of SA unions - or at least their leaders - is the notion that unions should actively aim at restructuring the economy through policy engagement. This idea is often labelled 'strategic unionism' or 'radical reform', and centres on a politics of cooperating with capital and the state to effectively restructure "South African" industry for global competition. This is summed up in the phrase that "business is too important to leave to management". read full story / add a comment

Much printers’ ink has been shed by pundits and politicians in attempting to explain, excuse, laud or condemn the rise of Jacob Zuma to the ANC Presidency from where it is just a short hop, skip and jump to the South African Presidency following the 2009 General Election. The rest of us, the people, are reduced to either disgruntled witnesses or ecstatic cheerleaders of “JZ” shifting the weight of his gut from foot to foot in his monotonous mshini-wam song. He knows it doesn’t have to be a particularly energetic dance, for it is pretty much guaranteed that the ill-gotten gains he allegedly sought so assiduously for so long will soon be his when he holds the keys to the Treasury. Just how did arguably the world’s most famous liberation movement implode so rapidly into a venal kleptocracy, a cabal of back-slapping thugs? Did it in fact implode? Did it descend from great ethical heights or was the rot there all along? read full story / add a comment

It shows how aspects of a better world already exist everywhere, including in Southern Africa, and how we can achieve this world, building on and extending existing cultural practices.

The tragedy which has beset the people of Zimbabwe, itself an indictment against the praxis of armed struggle controlled by a central political elite, is well-known. Zimbabweans waged a courageous guerilla war against colonialism only for the leader of that liberation movement, who has jealously guarded his presidency since Zimbabwe’s 1980 independence, to have turned out to be a despot equal to or rivaling the hated colonial ruler Ian Smith, who the people of Zimbabwe (then southern Rhodesia) fought so hard to rid themselves of. The Matabeleland massacres of the 1980s to root-out predominantly Ndebele opposition to Robert Mugabe’s ruling Zimbabwe African National Union (now Zanu-Patriotic Front) - the feared reprisals of which induce him, and high-ranking military officials close to him to this day to clench so strongly to power, for fear of being charged with crimes against humanity; the systematic abduction, torture and murder of political dissidents; the rigged elections and consequent campaigns of harassment and intimidation of opposition party Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) supporters in the wake of Mugabe’s first electoral defeat in 28 years; the shattered economy, with the world’s highest inflation-rate and the recent outbreak of cholera - which Mugabe blames on biological warfare being waged against Zimbabwe by the Western imperialist powers - are no secret, and need not be discussed in any detail here. read full story / add a comment

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.

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.
