Red October Campaign Rally
27 November 2015
"No revolution is worth anything unless it can defend itself."
– Vladimir Lenin
The South African Communist Party (SACP) is forging ahead with its Red October Campaign 2015-2016 aimed at achieving the transformation of the financial sector and the media.
The SACP will not be threatened by the colonial era apartheid mouthpiece, Naspers, which, it has become clear to us, is pushing an embedded media coverage strategy aimed at tarnishing the image of SACP leaders and that of the Party as a whole. This in the context of the SACP’s resoluteness in advancing the struggle to de-monopolise the media industry and achieve diversity both of ownership and perspective. As well as in the context of the leadership elections that will take place in our movement in 2017. This apartheid-style anti-communist media coverage strategy can therefore only be part of a wider political agenda to attack the SACP and its leaders and weaken its transformation efforts. What else is it aimed at other than maintaining the conditions for capitalist exploitation of the majority albeit this time inviting a few black faces and collaborators on the dinner table to push their subordinate private interests in the name of all black people.
The SACP remains resolute, that #NaspersMonopolyMustFall!
No ploy will de-focus our eyes from this democratic objective.
The SACP will leave no stone unturned in defending its leaders and the whole of the Party and deepening the struggle to achieve radical transformation.
On we go!
On Sunday, the SACP will hold a rally, through which the Party is intensifying its transformation programme, including mass mobilisation in all fronts, and will also respond to some of the smear campaigns and attacks that have emerged against its leaders.
Details of the rally are as follows.
