SACP is saddened by people being killed in motor vehicle accidents on Eastern Cape roads
The South African Communist Party (SACP) in the Eastern Cape is greatly shocked and saddened by the fatal road accidents that occur in the Eastern Cape. One life lost is too many and no life should be lost when that is preventable. We are gravely worried by the fact that so many people, breadwinners and future leaders, are perishing on our roads due to accidents.
SACP Thirteenth Congress Central Committee Press Statement
The SACP Central Committee met in Johannesburg over the weekend of 28-30 August. The CC was meeting in the context of serious storms gathering around the South African economy, notably in the mining and steel sectors. We have now experienced a single quarter of negative growth with the possibility of an impending recession. These issues, their relationship to the problematic structural features of South Africa’s political economy, the ongoing global capitalist crisis, and the impact of all of these on our society were, therefore, the central focus of reports discussed in the CC. Comrade Bheki Ntshalinthsali, acting COSATU general secretary, also presented a document on the state of the labour federation and the challenges faced by the working class.
SACP message of solidarity to the SAMWU 11th National Congress
Dear comrades, for and on behalf of the SACP let me express our message of solidarity with your union and its entire membership. The SACP is behind you, dear comrades! Over the last decade or so the SACP has been concerned about some of the weaknesses and challenges facing the progressive trade union movement and the workers in general. These challenges can only be properly understood from their structural causes and drivers. At the heart of this, is the massive restructuring of the workplace and the working class by the bosses who are interested in nothing but profit maximisation and private capital accumulation. This has had a huge impact on the unity of the trade union movement.
SACP statement by Cde Solly Mapaila at the 94th Anniversary Mpumalanga Provincial Rally
The fundament problem we must resolve is that our economy was engineered to serve as an exporter of raw materials. Our mineral resources were exploited to advance industrial development in the UK in particular, Europe in general, and in the United States. Local production of finished goods was not developed to its full potential to meet the overwhelming material and cultural needs of our people as whole. Our economy was internally designed to satisfy the needs of a few only, and this on a racist basis based on the oppression of the overwhelming majority.
