The counter revolutionary forces of white monopoly capital led by Johann Rupert and supported by opposition parties and the white media have called for a regime change. In this time, the heightened desperation and revolutionary anger of blacks are being channeled for neo liberal ends via organized white power. Now more than ever , the forces of revolution need to organize every segment of black life to resist and deal with this anti black offensive. The following extract from BLF’s press statement titled “Political Questions Facing The Country” delivered in Yeoville on 2 April 2016, is instructive:
“The call by Johann Rupert for a coup follows the failed attempt by his agents within the ANC, NEC to remove Zuma as expected by their handlers. Johann Rupert lost it and showed his hand. Now Malema has also endorsed the programme of regime change by Rupert and Co.
Johan Rupert and imperialism wants to remove Zuma before the people remove him through a revolutionary process that would ensure the end of white supremacy.
The call for Zuma to go is a calculation to make a pre-emptive strike to ensure a new stooge is put in power to ensure white interests are perpetuated. The favourite candidate right now is Cyril Ramaphosa who has already demonstrated that he can serve the interests of white capital even violently. Ramaphosa is not shy to kill for white capital – the Marikana massacre bears testimony to this.
The call for Zuma to go is because he no longer listens to white capital, he is looking “East for A family feast”- Russia, India and China. The close relationship with the Guptas is seen by white as a sign of how things are going to be if he is not quickly removed.
If Zuma is not removed he may introduce a bad culture of not taking the calls from London. The Guptas have upset white capital by entering into the mining sector aggressively. We saw how they bought Swiss owned Optimum coal. This deal is badly reported on and Brian Molefe is not given the credit he deserves as a patriot trying to safeguard national assets within a system that doesn’t permit this. No one knows that Optimum as owned by the Swiss actually tried to bully Eskom to break a deal it already has to try and pocket more money under threats of precipitating “loadsheding”.
The Guptas Must Go campaign is a campaign of white capital in its new attempt to reclaim their hold on the South African economy.
We wish to warn our people to be careful and not follow the agendas of white people under the pretext of fighting corruption.
We call on our people to reject the counter revolutionary call by the Rupert and Malema alliance. It is not about fighting corruption, it is about fighting for Rupert and white capital.
It’s a diversion from the fact that we want our land back!
We want Rupert and other land thieves to know that we are coming to take back the land. As we speak BLF members are organising around Stellenbosch.”
In this context BLF calls on blacks to join, build and support this beautiful revolutionary movement so as to end capitalist imperialism, white supremacy and all the other ills that manifest as the black condition and to install a black socialist system of governance.
