May 2013 SACP discussion document
This document is intended to open up constructive discussion and debate on the National Development Plan (NDP) - in the first place within SACP ranks. However, we are also releasing this document publicly in the hope that it will contribute to placing the discussion on the NDP onto a more constructive base. It is our view that the manner in which the NDP is being presented, by avid supporters and by die-hard opponents alike, risks exactly the opposite of what the NDP was intended to achieve. In particular, we are deeply concerned that the NDP is being turned into a divisive political football.
SACP Supports Government-led De Doorns Farm Dialogue as a step towards undoing the legacy of Natives Land Act of 1913!
Since farm workers strike for wage increase from R65 to R150 per day, the structural problems of skewed land ownership, squalid living conditions, abuse of farm workers, racism and abject poverty have been exposed. The SACP continues to voice its support for the genuine demands of workers for a living wage and more broadly equitable land distribution and thus economic ownership!
