SACP Brian Bunting District on the Mandela Day
As the SACP in the Brian Bunting District, we were delighted when President Zuma announced that the 2014 Mandela Day must be spent on amongst other things taking care of our environment. To us as the SACP, the 2014 Mandela Day present a great opportunity to take forward Chapter seven of the South African to Socialism (SARS) as adopted at our 13th National Congress. In this programme, as the Party we make a point that the struggle for socialism is the struggle for environmental justice.
Thanks to Minister Sisulu: The Lwandle inquiry will uncover the hidden dirt
The SACP in the Western Cape is appalled by the continuous paranoia of Helen Zille's administration against any form of assistance to the Lwandle community. We reiterate our support for the establishment of the Lwandle Inquiry as an attempt to uncover what has led to the victimisation of the poor in this area. Thus the Party maintains that the Zille administration's policy of manipulation, divide and rule has regressed progressive steps of integrated development to the dark days of Apartheid. Evident in this position is the Premier's and Mayor's blatant manipulation of community members which resulted in the heinous incitement of violence.
