The black South Africans protesting against President Jacob Zuma’s leadership are only fosterings economic terrorism in South Africa. If that’s not true, it is the sentiment of the Black First Land First (BLF) movement. BLF said there’s a new global war for the consolidation of white imperialist power which has manifested as economic terrorism in South Africa. The war according to the movement, is fought globally and specifically targeted at the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).
This is so because the BRICS is posing a serious threat to Western hegemony over the control of the world through institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). BFL further explained that the West response to BRICS is the application of economic terrorism and sponsored political instability. Economic terrorism in South Africa is carried out in form of attacks on the South African currency (Rand) to instigate inflation. “
The weapon of choice for economic terrorism is the so-called rating agencies. They attacked the Russian economy but President Vladimir Putin didn’t surrender. He instead drove them out of Russia. Today the Russian economy is on the mend without the sabotage of the rating agencies,” BLF stated. BLF added that the second strategy of sponsored political instability is driven by local political parties and Western funded civil society organizations. “This strategy succeeded in Brazil to remove the democratically elected President Dilma Rousseff.
The modus is to use the pretext of fighting corruption to mobilize society – via lies including exaggerated media reports – and create an atmosphere of hostility against the seating president. “Like in Brazil, we see in South Africa corrupt and compromised agents of regime change leading the so-called struggle against corruption,” asserted the party. BLF also proclaimed that the economic terrorist attack in South Africa has been engineered around the Guptas. The party called on South Africans to join them walk the path of anti imperialism as the country is at war with white monopoly capital.
Money For the blacks protesting against Mr Zuma’s leadership, chanting things like “Zuma Must Fall”, BLF wants them to ponder on these questions: What do blacks own after 22 years of democracy? Who owns the mines in South Africa?
Who owns ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank? Who owns the land? Who owns Pick ‘n Pay, Shoprite Checkers, Pep Stores, Edgars, Markhams and other stores? Who owns the media? Who owns the furniture shops, the car dealers, the cement factories and the brick making companies? Who owns Chicken Licken, Nando’s and KFC? Who owns the shopping malls? Why are blacks unemployed and poor when the country is rich? “The problem is not who is the president of the ANC.
The problem is how the ANC has failed to serve black people … We must resist the repeat of meaningless battles about who must be president. We must mobilise against imperialism by demanding radical change “We say no to regime change because it won’t serve black people … No more white agenda” charged the movement.
