Καταδικάζουμε την πρόσφατη μονομερή απόφαση της διεύθυνσης του Πανεπιστημίου Wits να μη δέχεται από εδώ και πέρα την παροχή ιατρικής περίθαλψης (την Swazi Med), για τους φοιτητές από τη Ζουαζιλάνδη για το τρέχον ακαδημαϊκό έτος. Αυτή είναι μια άδικη κίνηση από πλευράς του Πανεπιστημίου και, μάλιστα, τόσο κοντά στην περίοδο των εγγραφών. read full story / add a comment
southern africa / education / press release Saturday January 16, 2010 20:24 byZabalaza Anarchist Communist Front
We condemn the recent unilateral decision by Wits management to no longer accept many Swazi students’ medical aid provider, Swazi Med, for the current academic year. This is an unfair move by the university so close to the registration period. It means an additional burden on students from one of the poorest and most authoritarian states in the world, many of whom come from poor backgrounds and study in South Africa not out of choice but necessity.

International students have to pay their full fees and medical aid for the whole year prior to registration which makes it nearly impossible for poor and working class students to enrol. read full story / add a comment
southern africa / community struggles / anarchist communist event Monday November 30, 2009 14:23 byZabalaza Anarchist Communist Front   image 1 image
On the 26th of September this year a gang of heavily armed men launched an attack on the shack-dwellers movement, Abahlali BaseMjondolo, and organisers of the Kennedy Road Development Committee in the Kennedy Road settlement outside Durban. Members of the community spontaneously organised themselves in self-defence, and two people were killed in the clash. Thousands have been forced out of the township. After police stepped in to stop the self defence, the attackers systematically demolished the homes of AbM and KRDC members – with the police and local ANC leaders present! The political rivalry in KwaZulu Natal has exploited ethnic sentiment and tensions that emerged during the Jacob Zuma election campaign. There is a good case to suggest that African National Congress (ANC) in and around Kennedy Road is using ethnicity to mobilise local residents against popular social movements such as Abahlali.. The Kennedy Road attackers shouted slogans such as "The AmaMpondo are taking over Kennedy. Kennedy is for the AmaZulu." 13 people – all associated with Abahlali, and all Xhosa – have been arrested in connection with the murders, even though they were not the perpetrators of the attack, but its victims. They are facing false murder charges and have been held for two months without bail in the notorious Westville prison. Recently, a similar situation has arisen in Pemary Ridge, another settlement in the area, where key activists continue to receive death threats and remain in hiding after a police attack.

Anarchism is an ideology that fights against exploitation and all forms of oppression. We fight for a world in which women will be equal to men, a world without racism and class inequality, a world in which LGBTI and queer people are treated with respect. These struggles are part of the anarchist struggle against hierarchy and inequality, for an equal and free world. read full story / add a comment
