Twelve people were arrested at a private gathering in Extension 14 Vosloorus at about 03h30 on the 3rd of October 2010 by the Vosloorus Police Services. Most of the twelve arrested had just returned from the annual Johannesburg Lesbian & Gay Pride Parade to join birthday celebrations of a friend's mother. The twelve have been charged with obstruction of justice and attack on the police, a charge that they have denied to both the SAPS and their legal representative from Section 27, Advocate A. Hassim. ... read full story / add a comment

Mike Marqusee has just returned from a visit with trade unionists and democracy activists in Swaziland. This article will appear in The Hindu Sunday Magazine on 29 August. Swaziland is a small country with a big problem. The 1.3 million inhabitants of the land-locked southern African kingdom live under the thumb of one of the world’s last absolute monarchies, a venal and repressive regime whose plunder of the country is systematic and comprehensive. ... read full story / add a comment

At least six people have been shot dead in Mozambique's capital during clashes between police and demonstrators protesting against rising food and fuel prices. Police opened fire on protesters throwing stones and setting fire to tyres and barriers, but it was not immediately clear whether their bullets were responsible for the deaths. According to the AFP news agency, one boy was shot in the head and left dead in the street, while a police spokesman told Reuters two children were killed in the violence. Red Cross rescue teams in the impoverished southern African country said demonstrators were killed during separate protests in Maputo on Wednesday. "We have had 42 cases at the hospital. Twenty-three were wounded by gunshots. Two are being operated on at the moment. Nineteen have wounds from physical attacks. One died," Antonio Assis da Costa, director of emergency services at the Red Cross, told AFP. ... read full story / add a comment

The political interference around this case continued in the lead up to the start of the trial today. The prisoners were not brought to court and the state witnesses were not summoned to appear in court making it impossible for the trial to begin.

Neither the Investigating Officer nor the prosecutor could explain why the prisoners were not brought to the court or why the state witnesses had not been summoned to appear in court. ... read full story / add a comment

I first knew Mozambique through close contact in Dar es Salaam with FRELIMO in the early and difficult years – the 1960s and the first-half of 1970s – of its armed liberation struggle. Then Mozambique was seeking both to unite itself and to find political and military purchase against an intransigent and arrogant Portuguese colonialism. And FRELIMO – under the leadership of, first, Eduardo Mondlane (to be assassinated by the Portuguese) and, after him, of Samora Machel – did indeed manage, by 1975, to lead the country to victory. Along the way, FRELIMO succeeded in liberating zones in Mozambique adjacent to its rear bases in Tanzania and Zambia where it built a new social infrastructure of agricultural coops, schools and health services. Equally important, it forged an impressive corps of politically conscious and disciplined leadership cadres (see Cabaço, 2001 and 2009). ... read full story / add a comment

Corre un bel rischio chi volesse tentare un approccio critico, pubblico e non apologetico, dei Mondiali di Calcio, proprio mentre nel nostro paese siamo al culmine della frenesia collettiva per le aspettative di buoni risultati, nutrite da un buon sentimento nazionale e da una diffusa eccitazione. Ma è un rischio che bisogna proprio assumersi poichè, indipendentenente al contesto, è sempre necessario distinguere il mito dalla realtà. Nel caso del "più grande spettacolo del mondo", dando pure per scontati sia la bellezza che il divertimento insiti nel gioco del calcio, la fabbricazione del mito ha creato una situazione di ebbrezza, un sorta di forte e veloce euforia che oscura la realtà, a cui seguirà una rapida caduta depressiva nel ritorno alla realtà.

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

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
