The Black First Land First Student Movement (BLF-SM) at Walter Sisulu University recognises the struggle of outsourced workers. We are aware of the fact that there seems to have been a neglect of this particular aspect by the #FeesMustFall movement. One cause for this is that students seem to have been bogged down by the demands of the application/registration period and some of the humbling setbacks we had to soberly face. We must guard vigilantly against this narrowing of our otherwise intertwined black struggles and move towards principled unity with the cause of the black outsourced workers.
As the Black First Land First Student Movement at Walter Sisulu University we offer our unconditional solidarity to outsourced workers in their struggle against the indignity they face everyday. BLF-SM says that this indignity suffered by black workers can only be eradicated via the insourcing of all outsourced workers in the context of furthering the total decolonization project including establishing a black centered system of free quality education within a society developed along socialist lines. To this end BLF-SM calls on all students to register by any means necessary in order to establish a practical platform of united struggle with black workers. This unity is necessary to bring about an end to outsourcing via the insourcing of the outsourced workers coupled with a meaningful minimum wage.
Free The Mind, Free The Land!
