South-African territory: Armed Attack at the #eKhanana Land Occupation in Cato Crest

The comrades on the eKhanana Land Occupation in Cato Crest have fought a hard and brave struggle for land. Today there was a successful launch of the branch, and a celebration of the victory that has resulted in land being won after a long struggle.

Submitted to Enough 14.

Note: Enough 14 is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

However last night, while comrades were putting up the tent, Cde Siyabonga Mngadi was shot by an unknown person who just arrived and started shooting wildly at our members. He is in hospital at the moment.

Two weeks ago another comrade was shot dead at the same occupation.

We don’t know who is responsible for these shootings but we do know that the local ANC councillor, the notorious Mzi Ngiba, has repeatedly threatened our members, and the occupation. He has accused our movement of taking what he calls ‘ANC land’.

Our position remains that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, and not just to the rich, or to the ANC. Our position remains that land must be allocated on the basis of social need and not on a commercial or party political basis. We remain committed to land reform from below via the democratic self-organisation and mobilisation of the oppressed.
