  1. Are tjhethje .What is imperative going forward is to ensure that our members are provided with perephanalia so that we become visible when executing the work of our movement.

  2. This is our time as it was to the Great OR Tambo, Madiba, Sisulu, Mbeki and others whom thier dream was not taken serious by the Apartheid Practitioners, we must grab this opportunity with both hands and fight for our economy and make a remarkable mark for our country and our great children.

  3. Guys Walter Sisulu University is closing in the Eastern Cape due to a strike that took more than a month now. Students are not happy that Balde Nzimande has been quiet and failed to intervene. I suggest that you send your big guns to Eastern Cape at Walter Sisulu and address the youth. This will be a boost for EFF as no party seems to be interested to help the guys. Hurry now before ANC finds out.

  4. I would love the EFF leadership to intervene in this issue of Walter Sisulu University we cant have a situation where by universities are been closed down by this current government, our fellow young black students in that particular institution are suffering please EFF soldiers all our hopes are in your hands

  5. fighter’s people needs us and we are not visible. I think in the ground level we need t-shirts and caps to sell the organization to the peoples. People must see EFF where ever the go to be able to identify the logo in the ballot paper next year. viva

  6. Sons and daughter of Azania let us not be confused more than we are, nb: they have robbed us our culture, land, identity, made us to be inferior to our own complexion e.g where there is a black person something must go wrong , they taught us to say that when one of us fails in their shit-stem.
    We have to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery e.g speaking EngliSHIT with a shit-stem ascent and down looking our brother and sisters who can speak EngliSHIT
    It’s a revolution time EFF is a vanguard of Azania .Amandala we are not gonna be slaves in our fathers land.

  7. Sons and daughter of Azania we need a mobile vision , for full access some may be disadvantaged to access desktop please Commander Chief make a plan .

  9. The boy, 16, was forced to change schools from Hoerskool Transvalia in Vanderbijlpark due to constant bullying, the mother told the Sowetan.

    She said the group of bullies called her son a “kaffir”, stripped him naked, asked what a “kaffir” was doing at a white school and forced him to drink his own urine.

    A meeting was held, in Afrikaans, with the school governing body and a Sedibeng municipal official. It was adjourned until October 3 as the mother needed to bring in an interpreter.

    The mother says her son had since attempted to commit suicide, the newspaper reported.

    When principal Johan Venske was approached for comment by the newspaper, he referred questions to the provincial education department.

    Department spokesman Gershwin Chuenyane said an independent team of investigators had been appointed to look into the matter.

    The mother has also opened a case of assault with Vanderbijlpark police.

    1. I was brought up to work hard for what I want in life. If you were born 20 years ago you were born into a free country. Stop blaming whites for everything and actually start working and not just expecting things to fall in your lap. Maybe you want this country to be like Zimbabwe, they have nothing. Bad things happen to kids because adults are racist, whether it’s black or white it doesn’t matter. Don’t always look for excuses when YOU AS A PERSON are failing, maybe it’s you and not a government that ruled 20 YEARS ago. When you hear a union rep saying that it’s better to have no job then to accept the wages they are getting, aren’t you just ashamed.

  10. Solomon Mahlangu’s last words: ‘My blood will nourish the tree that will bear the fruits of freedom. Tell my people that I love them. They must continue the fight.’

  11. The Battle of Blood River is the name given for the battle fought between 470 Voortrekkers led by Andries Pretorius, and an estimated 10,000–15,000 Zulu attackers on the bank of the Ncome River on 16 December 1838. Casualties amounted to three thousand of king Dingane’s soldiers dead, including two Zulu princes. Three Trekker commando members were lightly wounded, including Pretorius himself……Do not forget this……

  12. All the things that happened in appartheid was terrible, wrong and really bad. It is good that that has been stopped: that is what the freedom fighters fought for. Never let any group of people be oppressed by another again. Is that not what Madiba said? Does it make sens then to try and promote the ideals of the EFF by aiming at oppressing other groups in the country? Then you are no different than those who promoted appartheid, and look where they are. I am all for living out your culture and who you are, without being broken down by the opinions of others about your skin, language, accent etc. Be who you are, but be it responsibly, otherwise nothing will change in our country, it may get worse.

  13. I believe playing with concepts such as war does not help anyone. Killing each other doesn’t help anyone, it just creates more hate and separation. We can still see it in our country today, even though we are supposed to be reconciled. We need to accept that none of us who live today, chose the actions our our fathers and their fathers before them. We did not choose to be born in this country, but we are here, this is our place. We should accept each other, respect each other, and be willing to live together in harmony, because that is the country that we inherited. More fighting will not help anyone, and it will not build our country to be what it can be.

  14. I saw some of the policy of the EFF in the founding documents, such as pertaining to land ownership. It seems to be based on Socialist principles. At the base of it, it looks like it is good principles. However, it is not a system of freedom. Nowhere in the world has socialism been a system of freedom. it is not a system of choice. You will not be able to choose where you stay. You have to apply for a license. And when the official get upset with you, or someone with influence convinces him, you will loose your license and your house. The only people who benefit from socialism, are those on top. That is how it is designed to be. Did you think about it? Commander and Chief says that he will never steal from the poor, but he owes government millions of Rand. Money that is supposed to be used to improve the lives of everyone in the country, including the poor. How is that not stealing from the poor? Will he not use his system of government to fill his pockets, while the poor remain poor, without the freedom that was bought by Madiba and the other freedom fighters? Socialism is for people who do not think, and who don’t know what their leaders are doing.

  15. I am not surprised at your sentiments, they are motivated buy selfishness, freedom to you means that you should remain comfortable and advantaged while the rest of the majority remains at the bottom, freedom to you means that I should ignore that your forefathers policies put my black people in unbearable conditions, freedom to you means that you should keep dictating terms to me, and forever have dominance on me, the thought of us being par with you on all levels, to you does not mean freedom. I suggest you rethink your motives, introspect, and ask yourself what motivates you, and next time do not use demeaning words ( we don’t think ) to address us.

  16. I don’t get this Paul dude, who spoke of war, all we saying is do not enjoy the benefits of being in Africa by yourself, when the Afrcan’s who belong here don’t enjoy them, we need to right the wrong, we can not go on turning a blind eye, go on like there is no injustice, we can not carry on nursing your feelings at the expense of the poor majority.

  17. Hi, it was in fact someone else who spoke of war, refering to blood river. The point I tried to make, to white South Africans as well, is that war is not necessary, and it does not help anyone.
    In addition, I believe that we should all be regarded as being on par. That is how I try to live my life. I hate what was done under appartheid. I am ashamed of it, and angry with my forefathers who created the situation that we are in today. What I don’t believe, is that a form of reverse appartheid will solve the problem. I believe things have to change for the poor, and here, where I live, I try to share what blessings I have with the people around me, like to grow a lot of vegetables and to provide it to people for FREE. An taking drinking water to them where they live on the farm. And by installing solar electric lights in their houses (which are not on my farm). I can’t do much, but I think they appreciate the food they are able to eat, and switching on lights with a switch. Many times I have made the trip to Mamelodi Hospital to take people who are sick, or to visit those who are there. We even fought with them because of the poor treatment they were giving to a little girl, until they rectified it.
    However, If you think about it, even if you distribute all the money and property in South Africa evenly, after a few years you will have people with more and people with less again. Unless you want to redistribute it again after a few years. It seems like a good idea to share everything we have with each other. However, we also have to share the hard work to get it. Vegetables don’t grow unless you work very hard, every week, to make them grow.

  18. It may be that Commander and Chief has honest intentions. No one knows what is in a man except the spirit that is in a man. We can only look at what someone does and says, and make some deductions. Like what you did with my comments. I may be wrong, but this is what it seems to me to be like. There are many poor people in our country who have been suppressed for many years. They have not, and some other people have a lot. And they are desperate for something good to happen, some positive change for the better. Some hope for the future. And politics in our country hasn’t provided it to them for many years. It seems to me that it is easy to give hope to people who are in such a position, by telling them that you will change it all for them, and by giving them everything that they always wanted. What I am afraid of, is that it may be empty promises which are used to gain trust and support from desperate people, that will not deliver in the end.
    Have you seen the movie Zambezia? It tells of people on the inside and on the outside. Those on the outside are desperate to have what is on the inside. Then there is Budzo, who makes use of their desperation to satisfy his own desires, and doesn’t follow through on his promises. We have to be careful of this, because those who are after power, often uses this strategy to gain power. Like we have seen in our country for many years, even in the previous government.

  19. Paul, Solutions Please!

    What do you suggest be done, instead of pointing out all the wrongs how about you for a change advise on a way forward. And you mentioned in your earlier communication that you are no expect on the subject of poverty, so really you can not speak with authority, nor can you tell me you understand what our people need. Yours does not sound like a a policy debate but rather a personality attack, which is not healthy. I think you need to sit down, introspect and review your intentions, is it really the people you have in mind? Maybe you should get out of your comfort zone, detach yourself from your comfort and follow the rest of us, can you do that? live without your comfort?

  20. RECOMMENDED political education You tube video for members and leaders of EFF:A talk to AlJazeera:Uruaguayan President:Pres Jose Mojica “I earn more than I need”. Revolutionary life in practice

  21. God Bless EFF i believe we as the members of the movement need to refrain from ussing words like Nkandla,Zuma,ANC and words like our people and start using words like (We The People),Mandela,Mbeki,EFF and self determination.We can go a long way because its only then that we can realise hope is still alive and kicking. Eff for life.

  22. I only know that we are launching a in Tonga today but not sure about the venue, can I be assisted in this regard. lets launch and work hard to unseat those who close all water supplies. may be it will also end that people of Nkomazi have to fight to get water.

  24. http://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/12/01/5-tools-to-help-us-reclaim-our-rights/

    Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness, November 30, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/macvuwt

    I wrote the following for the ‘planetary healing’ section of the 123rd issue of The Culture of Awareness Weekly Newsletter.

    This week, I’d like to outline 5 things we can do to peacefully reclaim our rights.

    We’re living in a time when corruption’s allowed to thrive unchecked, but our situation isn’t all bad. People are standing up every day and reclaiming the rights we’re supposed to have, and I’d like to offer somewhat of a guide on how we can go about this.

    I’m not saying I’m the best person to offer this guide, but we can all contribute to our conscious revolution by talking about the things that need done before we can regain our rights and live in a society that treats everyone equally.

    We certainly aren’t treated equally yet, and the richest 1% are given more rights and freedoms than the rest of us. Depending on your social status and the amount of money or power you have, you’re either given free reign or you’re oppressed by a system that works for the few and not the many.

    A lot needs done to transform our defunct society, but none of it can happen until we’ve come together, risen up and shown the people in power that we mean business. We won’t stand for any more violations of our rights, and the inequality that ravages our society will have to come to an end.

    It’s time for peace, justice and every other necessity that’ll help us create a positive future, and hopefully, the suggestions offered here will help those of you who are wondering what can be done to reclaim this planet in the name of a workable society.

    #1: Unity

    It might go without saying that unity’s the most important thing for people who want to reclaim their rights. We can’t do anything significant if we remain divided, and I think every person of every race will need to come together for our efforts to be effective.

    Instead of focusing on our differences, let’s focus on the things we have in common and unite with love and respect for our similarities. If we were united, we could all work together to show the people in power that we’re ready for the fair and just society we were supposed to have all along, and we’d take a huge evolutionary leap as one people.

    If there are socially and spiritually advanced civilizations beyond our world (I think there are somewhere), it stands to reason that their various races have long united and run their planets in harmony. A civilization can’t prosper if its people are divided, and our society has displayed this tenfold.

    Our society seems to be prospering at first glance, but if you look around with open eyes, you’ll see that there are a lot of things wrong with how we run it. It isn’t nearly as balanced as it seems, and things are happening everywhere that would horrify the general public if we knew about them.

    We have changes to make and authoritarian governments to collapse, but whatever we build in the wake of their destruction won’t last very long if we can’t come together. More authoritarian regimes would quickly take their place, and all we’d be able to do is protest again because we wouldn’t have come together and strengthened our movement.

    If you think about it, we won’t be organized enough to bring any governments to their knees until we’ve come together, and the sooner we can unite, the sooner we can finally start to change things.

    #2: Peaceful Protest

    This is probably a given, but I list it here to point out that what we need is peaceful protest, not violent protest or rioting. The most famous example of this right now is Ferguson, MO, where peaceful protests and violent riots are both taking place.

    I won’t say the rioters don’t have their reasons for doing what they’re doing, but divisive violence won’t solve any of our problems – it’ll only make them worse. We don’t want to burn down civilization or give the powers incentive to send in their military men against us.

    We want to do what they despise the most – passively and peacefully (yet directly and powerfully) protest. If the people don’t shoot any guns, set fire to any buildings, or fight any police officers, the powers have no reason to stop our protests.

    They have no reason to stop us from staging massive sit-ins and getting the mainstream media’s attention if we aren’t disturbing the peace or doing anything inherently violent. We’ll want to disturb the peace just enough to get the rest of the world’s attention, but our ultimate goals are peace, justice and equality – not anarchy.

    Peaceful protest obviously won’t stop the powers from fighting back, but they’ll expose their own corruption and alignment against the people by fighting peace, which could cause them to lose the support of people who weren’t protesting.

    Peaceful protests will alert and aggravate the existing power structures more than violent rioting, and we could use them to bring a lot of different issues to the public’s attention. The powers want us to cause havoc and destruction, so let’s refuse to give them what they want while subsequently dismantling their web of oppression with peaceful protest.

    #3: Healthy, Balanced Rebellion

    This goes hand-in-hand with peaceful protest, and we’ll want a little bit of fire under our bellies if our goal is to get the world’s attention. We’ll want a little bit of rebellion, but we won’t want it to get out of hand.

    Complete passivity solves as little as violent rioting, and as ego-driven it might sound to some spiritual seekers, we’ll want to assert ourselves. The powers have thrived from our ignorance and complacency, and the last thing we want is for others to use our own passivity to control us.

    Strength and direct assertion will be necessary, but again, our ultimate goal is peace and we won’t want to take it too far. Just like we don’t want protests to turn into riots, we don’t want rebellion to turn into anarchy. I think there’s a difference between the two, and one’s healthy for us while the other could hurt us in the long run.

    Rebellion’s a great thing when it comes to rebelling against forces who’ve curtailed our rights and generally kept us down. The very energy of rebellion is an energy of resistance that we won’t want to incorporate into our spiritual quests, but its use is necessary to dethrone our self-serving governments and the corporations who secretly run them.

    Rebellion’s healthy as long as we don’t take it too far, and if practiced in a balanced way, it can be used positively and progressively. Without rebellion, the powers would’ve long dominated us into submission, so let’s keep this in mind when the time comes to show our rebellious side.

    #4: Social Media

    It’s obvious that social media is one of the best tools to raise awareness, coordinate protests, etc.

    Popular uprisings like Occupy Wall Street started out with social media, and this platform provides us the ability to directly communicate – in large groups in some cases – and coordinate events that we’ll use to display our people power.

    We can plan protests; sit-ins; concerts that are designed to raise awareness and raise our vibration a little. I’m not trying to sound as much like a hippie as I’m probably starting to, but no matter what kind of event we plan, social media will help us with it.

    If there’s something specific we all plan to do as a large, united group, we can coordinate it with social media. We can use social media to record live streams of various events we’ll plan in the name of taking back our rights, or we can use it to spread any videos, etc. we make for the same purpose.

    No matter what we do, social media will help us with it. This is partly why the powers are scrambling to ‘regulate’ the internet – they want to stop the spread of social and spiritual awareness that various things like Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc. have enabled us to spread.

    They want to keep us from achieving our goal in dethroning them and building something new, but they won’t ultimately be successful. The will of the people will always trump the will of the elite, and in time, more people will become active and social media will play a huge role.

    #5: Perseverance

    Second to unity, this might be the most important recommendation. As we go about protesting or doing whatever else we do to gain national attention and begin reclaiming our rights, we’ll need perseverance. Those among us who participate the most will probably face the hand of corruption and oppression many times throughout their journeys.

    The more we stand up and protest, the more the authorities will try to keep us down and stifle what we’re doing. Some people might be pepper sprayed; some might be hit with batons; some might even be jailed or shot. We’ll want to get through everything we experience and stay true to our goal of collective peace and the diminishment of corruption.

    The powers will pull out all the stops to keep us from doing what we’re here to do, but we’ll have to answer to their attempted oppression with even stronger, more dedicated attempts to reclaim our rights. The best way we can persevere is to refuse to descend into anarchy or rioting, and I’m sure we’ll be baited into it plenty of times.

    Like I said earlier, the elite wants us to riot so they can deploy the big guns, but we don’t have to give them what they want. The hardest part of persevering will probably be the refusal to go crazy and burn everything down. I know that sounds harsh, but if we’re hurt and baited enough by police, there’s no telling what could run through our minds.

    As we go about our protests and keep the importance of persevering in mind, we’ll want to consistently remember not to descend into violence, no matter how badly the corruption hurts. We’ll want to stay as organized and united as possible, and we won’t want to let anything or anyone break the unitive bonds we’ll have started to forge.

    The powers have used the tactic of ‘divide and conquer’ to rule over us for centuries, but with unity and perseverance, we’ll show them that we really can answer to their unjust reign without falling into division and fighting among each other.

    Conclusion

    With all of the crazy things that are happening right now (especially in Ferguson), we have a great opportunity to finally start speaking out against the people who continue to keep us down. Our freedom’s only as restricted as we let it be, and realizing that we’re already free is the first step to making our realization a reality.

    Those of us who’ve become spiritually aware know that we’re free regardless of what any government or authority figure tells us or does to us, but the final step is to solidify these freedoms on the world stage, for everyone to enjoy.

    Everyone will have to find freedom within before we can liberate ourselves from the oppression of our governments, and once we find inner freedom, the next step is to help it spread to everyone else who’s been too passive, complacent and generally unaware to understand what freedom actually is.

    Freedom isn’t complacently listening to our governments as we indulge in a consumeristic society – freedom is recognizing that we’ve come to this planet with sacred, inalienable rights and protesting until a) our governments recognize and honor those rights, or b) our governments are rendered irrelevant because they’ve failed to honor them.

    These are the first steps to freedom, so let’s take them as a united, collective unit that’s capable of using peace and organized protest to change the world.
