Constitution


Preamble

ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS is a radical and militant Economic Emancipation Movement which brings together revolutionary, fearless, radical, and militant Activists, workers’ movements, Non-governmental organisations, community based organisations, lobby-groups under the need to pursue the struggle for economic emancipation.

EFF is a radical, Left, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist Movement with an internationalist outlook anchored by popular grassroots formations and struggles. EFF will be the vanguard of community and workers’ struggles and will always be on the side of the people. EFF will, with determination and consistency, associate with the protest movement in South Africa, and will also join in struggles that defy unjust laws.

The EFF takes lesson from the notation that “political power, without economic emancipation is meaningless”. The Movement is inspired by ideals that promote and practice organic forms of political leadership, which appreciate that political leadership at whatever level is service, not an opportunity for self-enrichment and self-gratification.

The EFF draws inspiration from Marxist-Leninist and Fanonian schools of thought on its analysis of the State, imperialism and class contradictions in every society. Through organic engagement and constant relationship with the masses, Economic Freedom Fighters provide clear and cogent alternatives to the post-colonial economic systems, which in many countries kept the oppressed people under colonial domination and suppression

  7. I have been waiting along time for a party to have these principles. I always belonged to the SACP but having to vote for the capitalist ANC worried me but we had nobody else to push the socialist agenda.
    I love the fact that the EFF is non racist in looking to nationalise all land Tokyo Sexwale’s, Vivian Reddy’s and mine alike. Good luck

    1. Peter O. Please send me your address. I want to have a look at what property you have to be nationalised. I am concerned that it may be worthless. At EFF we only want the following:
      * Profitable and well running mines and businesses who are severely cash-positive.
      * Only houses and mansions with swimming pools are of value to us.
      * Farms must have animals and well kept houses and tools, tractors and equipment.

      If you do not have this, we can not accept your membership

    1.

  14. Guys, look at how many people here are saying things like “we need forms, when are you visiting, what’s taking so long….” doesn’t that tell you something?????

  15. My question is as we are collection more than 10 forms nd deposited the money to bank.nd we used one reference.so when we go to conference which system ur going to used to check fake membership?

  16. weaknesses of the EFF
    1. if you cut off the head of the movement, it will die
    the known leadership are vulnerable to slander, bribery, violence and assassination.
    solution: create an invisible, secretive unknown leadership. they live & work in ordinary jobs in the community. they monitor the performance, sack & replace known leaders.
    known leaders deflect attention & attacks : slander, – away from the unknown leadership. and create a regional leadership that guards the national leadership
    2. a good leader creates good leaders
    Malema is well known – which makes the party unbalanced & vulnerable. if he was a good leader – he would step back (concentrate on 1 issue) and promote 19 other good leaders addressing 19 other important issues for the south African people.
    3. leaders must work harder than the people
    the party should hold a live 2 hour national debate every saturday on 1 of the top 20 important issues for south African people. the debate is for the party to listen and the people to speak about their problems and solutions. the debate should be presented live on a national radio station. the debate should be held in a different province every week. but people from other provinces can call in. allow people to give feedback to party ideas on the website
    4. make messages factual, easy to understand and remember
    official writing and speaking statement should be as short as possible, use graphics to present data. and key statements repeated constantly. so the people are not confused & the media cannot twist it. statements should concentrate on sharing people’s problems(experiences, facts, numbers & figures) solutions:(assumptions, numbers, costs, time-frame)
    5. better representation
    the ministers of the party must have the same proportion by gender, by age, by province, by tribe – as the people of the country.
    6. communication security
    the website must have a number of mirror sites in different countries. websites may also be created for each province. feedback forms on the websites are safer than emails.

    1. I read the comments about WEAKNESSES of the EFF.
      EFF must democratically accept critics to be able to focus on its strategies.
      EFF is the baby now but good and strong foundation will make it a very strong organization.
      Next elections, this organization must not be one of the main opposition of the ruling party but a ruling party and it is POSSIBLE!!!

  17. I am a loyal supporter of EFF. Now recently I have noticed with great concern the downfall of my beloved party. I don’t know whether it is because of internal squabbles or what. The party has started losing lot of members and this should be a concern for leadership.really I am disappointed with the way things are being done at this party. Maybe I am lost but the issue of taking party to court is a sign of division just like what happened to cope. I need clarity on this matter.

  18. This party has disappointed a lot of people who liked and voted for it with the believe that it is going to be an alternative to ANC and it is true EFF is nothing else but the extention of ANCYL under another name.

    They have one mission of which it was never a mandate from those who voted them; To destroy the ANC and make their government ungovernable.
    Otherwise they are the ANC and it is just that they have a problem with those who are in power in ANC at the expense of their voters.

    I think as long as there are parties formed with that mentality, yes ANC will rule until Jesus come.
