EFF FREEDOM DAY STATEMENT

Wednesday, 27 April 2022

The EFF marks the twenty eighth Anniversary of the primary democratic election, which was held on the twenty seventh of April 1994. Popularly often known as “Freedom Day”, as we speak was when the primary democratic election of the democratic dispensation was held, the place black individuals had been for the primary time allowed to vote and decide their very own political affairs.

The democratic transition which is noticed as we speak, was prematurely declared Freedom Day, as 28-years later, not a lot has modified by way of the target realities of African individuals. Due to the a lot heralded peaceable transition, South Africa has operated on a false-premise of unity and social cohesion, with out economically altering the possession of the technique of manufacturing.

We thus have a façade of a democracy, coupled with a non-event of Independence, as a result of our political freedom was characterised by a negotiated settlement by which the perpetrators of the heinous crimes of Apartheid had been by no means held accountable.

As a results of the undue and reckless consideration of our oppressors after we transitioned to democracy, the land of South Africa stays within the palms of a white-minority, at a degree of 72% in comparison with the measly and rotten 4% of land which is underneath African management.

The majority of mines stay managed by overseas pursuits, whereas the banks, monetary sector and Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), is within the agency grip of a white-settler neighborhood.

Due to this, the political freedom obtained in 1994 has turn out to be meaningless, as a result of those that management our financial system have in the end decided our political and financial trajectory. The insurance policies of South Africa are crafted in Washington and by an elite group of monetary establishments, who stand to profit probably the most from the disenfranchisement of African individuals.

The majority black inhabitants stays in space-less townships, packed in shacks on high of each other, with little entry to drinkable water, schooling, sanitation and housing. Black life in South Africa is one among squalor, defeat, hopelessness and landlessness, and accordingly we’re probably the most inclined to illness and tragedy.

The EFF subsequently reiterates that political freedom with out financial freedom is meaningless!
