​BLF does not recognise the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC)

Black First Land First (BLF) notes the statement released by the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) earlier today, erroneously accusing BLF of harassing white journalists.

We are not suprised that the Commission has not engaged the views of BLF before writing its weak statement. The SAHRC has done nothing for black people and has been a consistent defender of white racism. 
We ask the Commission, what have you done about Penny Sparrow? What have you done about Helen Zille? What have you done about land theft? What have you done about farm workers who suffer indignity and racism everyday? What have you done about mine workers who die poor while digging gold for white people? What have you done about the pervasive racism in the financial sector? In this context we also ask, what has the Commission done about Black journalists (specifically ones from ANN7), who have been attacked multiple times?
The answer to all these questions is a big nothing! 
We are not suprised that this Commission believes that only whites are human and worthy of defense. The Human Rights Commission is not a Commission for Black people, but one for whites. The ‘Human’ and ‘Rights’ of the Commission are solely reserved for white people. Since 1994, Black people have continued to live under sub-human conditions and the Commission has done nothing to intervene in this situation. Black people live on top of each other like animals in shacks and the Commission is completely mum on this situation. 
BLF wants to make it clear today that we do not recognise the Commission. It is not a Commission which can ever defend the interests of Black people. We shall defend ourselves.
