MESSAGE OF THE COMINTERN (SH) ON OCCASION OF

AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY


MAY 25, 1963 - MAY 25, 2018

Today, we celebrate the 55 th anniversary of the African Liberation Day. This is an occasion to greet all exploited and oppressed peoples who struggle for their liberation from imperialist-capitalist enslavement not only in Africa but all over the world.

    Enver Hoxha wrote:

    "There can be no talk of genuine freedom and independence, since most of them are still in a colonial or neo-colonial state. (…) The imperialists are ruling most of the African countries again through their concerns, their capital invested in industry, banks, etc. The overwhelming bulk of the wealth of these countries continues to flow to the metropolises. (…) The policy pursued by the big landowners, the reactionary bourgeoisie, the imperialists and the neo-colonialists is intended to keep the African peoples in permanent bondage, in ignorance, to hinder their social, political and ideological development, and to obstruct their struggle to gain these rights.” (Enver Hoxha, Imperialism and the Revolution, Tirana, 1979, edition in English)

A truly free Africa can only be a socialist Africa in a socialist world. The Comintern (SH) is fighting for the goal of establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat throughout Africa.

Africa is free when not only the world bourgeoisie as a whole is defeated, but also all national bourgeoisies on the entire African continent have disappeared!

Without a revolutionary organization guided by the teachings of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism, there will be no communism in Africa. It is therefore time for the African proletariat to complete what it has begun, its liberation from wage slavery. This requires building the sections of the Comintern (SH) in all African countries, based on the invincible teachings of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha.

Only in this way will the African proletariat ill become an inseparable detachment of the glorious red proletarian world army, which will forever defeat world imperialism and march towards world socialism and world communism.

Imperialism means war

- even on the African continent.

Smash world imperialism in Africa!

As a result of the global economic crisis this year, the exploitation of the world imperialist powers has reached its peak. That also affects Africa. The redistribution of imperialist spheres of influence on the entire African continent is imminent. This means war on African soil by the imperialist US, by imperialist Europe (eg France, England, Germany), by imperialist China, and by other imperialist states such as Russia, Brazil, India etc. But also African imperialists themselves, like those in South Africa, will be involved in predatory war for the new redistribution of rulership. Every imperialist world power is fighting for absolute supremacy over Africa - in last consequence by means of the war. That is according the predatory law of world imperialism.

Looking at the current military activities of world imperialism, there are some indications that Africa will in future be divided into four main imperialist spheres of influence:

In North Africa, European imperialism will prevail, but it will have to defend bitterly its hegemony there, especially against the US and China.

In West Africa, American imperialism will prevail and from there seek to extend its super power throughout Africa.

In East Africa, Chinese imperialism will prevail. The superpower China, however, will not settle for East Africa. It is preparing the takeover of the entire African continent.

In South Africa, South African imperialism will continue to rule and expand to the north, but at the same time it will remain dependent, for a while, on various world imperialist powers operating there.

If this possible scenario is not prevented by the unified armed, anti-imperialist war of liberation of the peoples of Africa, then this war for the redivision of Africa will inevitably provoke a civil war that spreads throughout the African continent. The African civil war is part of the world civil war between the world bourgeoisie and the world proletariat, between the forces of world imperialism and the forces of world socialism. The victory or defeat of the world socialist revolution will determine the future of humanity, namely finally where it originated - in Africa.

 

Smash capitalism in Africa !
Long live socialist Africa !

Africa is being exploited and oppressed not only by foreign imperialist powers, but also by the indigenous bourgeoisie, more or less serving the world imperialist powers.
Today, capitalism prevails throughout Africa. In Africa, the capitalist class society exists with exploiting and exploited classes.
The contradiction between capital and labor, between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, has long since become the chief contradiction in Africa and dominates the class struggles in Africa.
As in any capitalist country, the class struggle in African countries will inevitably lead to the power of the working class, which, with the victory of the socialist revolution, will establish the dictatorship of the proletariat and build socialism.
Africa is the continent with the most extreme class contradictions in the world.

Colonialism did not prevent the emergence of capitalism in Africa, but only delayed it. Nowhere is capitalism developing at a faster pace than on the African continent of today. The world imperialists noticed that a capitalist Africa is much more profitable than an old style colonialism. African capitalism produced a strong African working class - one of the new grave diggers of world imperialism. The African workers' movement is still young, but it will learn faster than the workers' movements on the other continents. They will play a more and more important role in the world socialist revolution.

 

Africa is the continent with the sharpest class contradictions in the world.

The situation of the working class is catastrophic. Every strike movement is oppressed and violently persecuted by the alliance between the bourgeois state, the capitalists and the bourgeois trade union leaders. A current example is the anti-strike law in South Africa. The new pact of this trio provides that in case of "violence or damages" on the part of the workers, in strikes, everything has to be done to end the strike as soon as possible, if necessary by force. Wild strikes are condemned by the state in the future as "strike breaking" (as a violation of the strike law). By order of the Labor Court, pickets are arrested by police and convicted by the court.

On April 25, the unions in South Africa had called for a general strike against the Minimum Wage Law, which is nothing other than the legalization of slave wages. The working class has defeated apartheid and will also defeat capitalist exploitation and oppression.

Miners demonstrated on May 10 in front of the mine chamber in Johannesburg against the death of 33 miners this year. In 2017, 76 miners died, compared to 73 in 2016.
In 2012, former mine union leader Cyril Ramaphosa (today's President of South Africa !!!) was responsible for the death of 34 striking miners at Marikana , who were shot dead by the police[the Comintern-SH reported on this]. The multi-billion dollar investor Ramaphosa prompted the African National Congress government to send in armed police to break the strike.

At the moment, in South Africa, wage negotiations for bus drivers are delayed by the capitalists, which is why a nationwide 4-week bus driver strike was called. Further wage strikes are planned this year for the civil service.

In South Africa, militant protests have been increasingly taking place in working-class cities, including those in greater Cape Town and Johannesburg. The workers struggle against catastrophic living conditions because the communities are not able to provide basic services to them.

In Ghana, the largest union of miners is planning protests and strikes in all factories in the country, if the government gives green light to the company "Gold Fields Ltd." to fire more than 2000 miners.

 

In Africa, healthcare is collapsing.

Now it is to be "rescued" by means of privatizations by foreign investors.

Healthcare strikes are spreading across the continent:

In Algeria, the police made witch hunts on the protesting doctors. Strikes have been banned since 2001. The doctors were treated like criminals. Security forces prevent Algerian doctors from attending a sit-in. Police officers indiscriminately arrest passers-by on bus or subway stations just because they are employed in health care. Outside the capital, they were released.
Declining oil and gas revenues, cuts in food and fuel subsidies and rising inflation continue to weigh on Algerians as they face an economic crisis that is now in its fourth year. As social tensions increase, workers' demonstrations, strikes and sit-ins have massively increased in recent months, peaking on 14 February 2018 in a nationwide general strike in public schools and hospitals.
Before the general strike, many demonstrators reported that they had been temporarily arrested or arbitrarily detained in several provinces and cities by security forces and plainclothes police. In addition to the civil unrest in the health and education sectors, airline flight attendants Air Algérie staged a surprise strike in late January 2018 that paralyzed local and international flights for days. Their demands for better wage were condemned by companies and government officials. Air Algérie imposed disciplinary action. Two days after the general strike, Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia threatened he would "not tolerate the continued existence of this anarchy" and promised to put an end to it. The workers' answer is clear: the Algerian working class will promise to put an end to capitalism in Algeria and to replace the bourgeois dictatorship through the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Algeria is not an isolated case.
Medical strikes in Sudan, in Togo and Mauritania.
In Zimbabwe the nurses striked. The strikers were dismissed and their pension rights were canceled. Above all, it was the 15,000 nurses who contributed to the fact that in 2016 fascist President Robert Mugabe had to abdicate. His former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa is now president (!). Of course, he is afraid of the same fate Mugabe suffered.

In Nigeria, hospitals have extended their strike nationally after the government occupied the medical facilities by means of the army. The government blackmailed the strikers with the threat: "Ebola epidemics from the Democratic Republic of the Congo could spread in Nigeria because of the strikes".

In Zimbabwe teachers are striking, namely despite strikebreaking of yellow union leaders, who want to negotiate a rotten compromise with the government. The teachers reject this lazy compromise. As a result, the government has threatened to dismiss striking teachers and to cancel their pension.

One by one, the old corrupt elites of national independence movements are under pressure from the public's protest. Under the rule of the African bourgeoisie, African democracy, which was still young 55 years ago, has long since become open fascism and social fascism. Even the social fascist Jacob Zuma, South Africa's president from the former anti-apartheid movement, had to abdicate. In TOGO, the opposition has been protesting almost weekly since August 2017. The scale of the protests is enormous: 800,000 demonstrators in a country of 6.6 million. The protests have already claimed 16 lives and the government has blocked the Internet nationwide to stop the protests.

The governments and "parliaments" in Africa are so corrupt that they will sooner or later fall one after the other. The way out is not the election of new corrupt governments, but overthrow of the bourgeois class, the abolition of capitalist parliamentarism and the establishment of socialist council power under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Growing protest movement in Africa

In 2018, the protest movement in Africa has continued to increase. It is our task as Stalinist-Hoxhaists to strengthen its militant character and to direct this protest movement towards the socialist revolution. We rely in particular on the protest movement of the youth.

Noteworthy is the hunger strike of the brave revolutionary students in Morocco.

The African Youth is the brightest flame of the African Revolution. This manifests on all streets in Africa. Africa offers no prospects for its young people. Most young people do not find work and have to fight for their existence on the ground or leave their homelands as refugees. We just cite one example of the growing African refugee waves: the conflict between Oromia and Somali, which has forced nearly 1 million people to flee.

In 2018 many protested Africans were killed or injured in the streets. Because they fight for their rights, they are imprisoned and fall victim to state terrorism, which prevails in all African countries.

The state terror in Africa is directed in first line against the protest movement, which is defamed as a "terrorist movement". For example, in Ethiopia hundreds of protesting people were killed on the streets.

We report on the unrest in Tunisia.
Protesters have taken to the streets in a number of Tunisian cities and demanded that the government delete new austerity measures involving an increase in fuel prices and taxes on goods.
At least one demonstrator died in the town of Tebourba, near the capital, Tunis.
The Tunisian Interior Ministry denied reports that the dead man was run over by a police car.
The police arrested 328 protesters. 2100 soldiers were deployed to protect vital facilities such as "banks, post offices and other government buildings in major cities in the country".
The new youth movement in Tunisia is protesting in the streets to put pressure on the government and overturn austerity measures.
What are the protests against?
These are above all the price increases. The Tunisian government has increased taxes under the Finance Act 2018. The new budget increased VAT on cars, alcohol, phone calls, the Internet, hotel accommodation and other items. The important tourism sector has not recovered yet after the deadly terrorist attacks in Sousse and Tunis in 2015. Tunisia's inflation is currently around 6% a year, which reduces people's incomes, and tax hikes hit the poorest of the poor - not the rich.
Who is behind the protests?
The protests seem to have spontaneously erupted among people at the local level.
A new, informal youth movement called Fech-Neustan - or "What are we waiting for?" - Created at the beginning of the year, now uses social media to resist price increases.
The group, which uses an alarm clock as a logo to symbolize the need for the population to wake up and act, estimates its own members at around 6,000 across the country, with hundreds of members in Tunis. Representatives say it is a loosely organized grassroots movement without a leader. Some of its members belong to opposition parties - such as the "Popular Front" neo-revisionists of the ICMLPO (Hamma Hammami). These leaders are trying to strangle the Tunisian revolution and turn it to a wrong (petty bourgeois) track instead of leading the Tunisian working class to the socialist revolution.

In Morocco, the protests over economic marginalization have continued since the end of December 2017 in the former mining town of Jerada (Oriental region). The miners demand better safety regulations in the mines. Tensions increased as the government arrested two key leaders of the protest movement and subsequently banned all protests. The residents of Jerada opposed the ban and went to the barricades.

In Guinea, the students protested in Conakry when the strikes - especially the teachers' strike - went into the third week. Since the elections on 4 February 2018, there have been continuing waves of protests in Guinea. 14 protesters died in the clashes.

Cameroon is still facing an escalating uprising in its south.

An increase in revolutionary violence has also been reported in the Central African Republic (CAR) and Mali.

In Madagascar, the students clashed with other protesters who called for the resignation of the president in recent weeks and aggravated the country's political crisis.
In Senegal, clashes erupted between students and the police in Saint Louis on May 15, resulting in the death of one student, and leading to further student protests the next day.

African farmers are protesting against the flooding of Africa with foreign agricultural goods. The domestic agricultural market is destroyed and thus the livelihood of the farmers. Responsible are not only the agricultural capitalists from Europe, but also increasingly from China.

 

Escalating fight for resources in Africa

 

The fight over water has got the character of class struggle in Africa. It is a struggle between the poor and the rich, a struggle to abolish private ownership of African water resources. The war over the water, the war over oil and other mineral resources will increase to the same extent as their scarcity.
Mining raw material extraction (including oil, diamonds, copper and cobalt) has tremendous economic potential for bourgeois governments in Africa. It is also a source of political power within the class society. It is both an economic source for the revolution and the counter revolution.
Corruption is the order of the day. Those who win the raw materials, the workers, remain poor. The profit goes into the pockets of the indigenous bourgeoisie, the labour aristocracy and the multinational corporations. This unequal distribution leads more and more to social conflicts. Rebel groups are using profits from conflict diamonds to fund civil wars in Angola, DR Congo and Sierra Leone. Oil workers are kidnapped and taken hostage. The incidence of conflicts is five times higher than it was ten years ago. While such riots and protests are occurring throughout Africa, resource-related struggles and cases of violence against workers are particularly evident in only a few countries: Nigeria, Sudan, South Sudan, DRC and Somalia. Nigeria consistently has a high direct conflict with resources. As the 12th largest oil producer in the world and the eighth largest exporter, the resource-related conflict in Nigeria revolves around oil. About 5% of violent conflicts in South Sudan since 2011 are explicitly resource related. The vast majority of this kind of conflict, which is being observed in South Sudan, consists of battles, primarily between government forces and rebel groups. Resource conflicts in South Sudan are also associated with oil. Sudan has also experienced a large number of these oil conflicts.
While oil creates resource-related conflicts in Nigeria, Sudan and South Sudan, the commodity-related conflict in DR Congo is fueled mainly by mining (eg diamonds, cobalt). It is estimated that DR Congo has approximately $ 24 trillion of unexploited crude mineral ore, including the world's largest cobalt reserves. Most of this type of conflict in the DR Congo takes place primarily between government forces and rebel groups. It's about control of the mines.
Somalia sees a high number of conflicts directly with resources, mainly caused by clan clashes over access to and control of land and water resources. In a region with year-round high temperatures and limited / irregular rainfall, these natural resources become even more valuable.
Riots and protests related to resources have increased in recent years. Nigeria and, most recently, Libya account for the largest share of these events. With Nigeria the largest oil producer on the continent and Libya home to Africa's largest oil reserves, food riots and protests in these countries are primarily targeted at the oil industry. For example, these riots and protests include the closure of the offices of local oil companies: emands for more transparency, higher wages and better working conditions.
Given the low enforcement of mining industries in Africa, corruption in these industries is high. Although the region has a number of extremely resource-rich countries, many are still extremely poor and underdeveloped.

Our answer is clear:

Fight the plundering of Africa's resources by the world imperialists!

Everything belongs in the hands of the African working class! Expropriation of the capitalists! Abolition of private ownership of resources! Resources in the hands of the working people!

Abolition of capitalism! Establishment of socialism!

Today's crises of world capitalism have devastating consequences for the impoverished population of Africa. The world crisis is being misused by the world imperialists to extract more wealth from Africa. This corresponds to the parasitic nature of world imperialism (the concentration and centralization of exploitation, the monopolization of financial and industrial capital, the business of hunger, water, resources, wage slavery, refugees, proxy wars, etc.) The blood of the African peoples continues to flow for the maximum profit of imperialists around the world.

The heroic history of the anti-imperialist wars and liberation struggles of Africans will one day be rewarded with the victory of the socialist revolution throughout Africa. In Africa, one day, the dictatorship of the proletariat will be established and an African Union of Socialist Republics founded, modeled on the Soviet Union of Lenin and Stalin, and on the model of socialism in Albania of comrade Enver Hoxha.

The African Liberation Day represents a socialist Africa in a socialist world!

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is

the teaching of the preparation, recruitment, centralized organization and mobilization of the international proletarian army, in general, and the transformation of the reserves of the imperialist hinterland into new proletarian detachments of the world socialist revolution, in particular.

The weakening of the chain of world imperialism requieres the strengthening of the anti-imperialist chain in Africa.

With the development of capitalism in the colonies, the global development of world imperialism is nearly mature and complete - thus ready for the transformation into world socialism - also in Africa.

The expansion of imperialism in Africa - coupled with so much misery and blood - prepares its own decline and consequently its replacement by socialism. Unavoidably, that will be a new kind of socialism with global features - in the course of the globalization on the African continent and the socialist world revolution.

Africa is on the road back to its roots - to the classless society - and thus on the road towards communism in a classless world !

 

Long live the 55th anniversary of the African Liberation Day!

Comrades of the African continent !

Build up your strong "African Section" of the Comintern (SH) !

Without a revolutionary organization, which is guided by the teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism, there will be no communism in Africa !

The conscious and active transformation of the interests of the revolution in Africa into the service of the interests of the socialist world revolution - only this is genuine internationalism of the African working class.

For a socialist Africa in a socialist world !

Establish the proletarian dictatorship in every African country !"

 

Long live the struggle of African and world workers for their liberation from exploitation and oppression!

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhaism!

Long live world socialist revolution and violent proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the African Sections of the Comintern (SH)!

Long live the Comintern (SH) – the only true Bolshevist world party!

MESSAGE OF THE COMINTERN (SH) ON OCCASION OF

AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY


MAY 25, 1963 - MAY 25, 2017

Today, we celebrate the 54th anniversary of the African Liberation Day. This is an occasion to greet all exploited and oppressed peoples who struggle for their liberation from imperialist-capitalist enslavement not only in African but all over the world.

The history of African class society is the story of his heroic class struggle against slavery, subjugation and plundering, the history of defeats and victories of his liberation. The peoples of Africa are rich in experience from which they can draw lessons for their total liberation and emancipation. And also the African proletariat is capable to draw lessons from the recent history of the workers movement in Africa. And that goes also for the lessons of the communist movement and, especially for the anti-revisionist struggle in Africa. 

African neo-revisionism is the restoration of African revisionism, is reconciliation with revisionism in general, and with Maoism, in particular. The socialist revolution will fail if the communist movement in Africa is not purified from neo-revisionism, as long as neo-revisionist influence is not defeated.

We appeal to those African revolutionaries who are militant fighters against revisionism, neo-revisionism, and especially against Maoism. Today, an African communist is characterized by the ideological demarcation-line between Stalinism-Hoxhaism and Neo-Revisionism. We need African comrades who are implacably against revisionism and social-fascism, and absolutely determined to fight against every revisionist influence among the revolutionary communist- and workers movement in Africa.

It is the core issue of the communist movement in Africa , not to unite with the reformist, revisionist or neo-revisionist elements in the struggle against imperialism, but to fight imperialism and its lackeys by the socialist revolution on the basis of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism.

The one colonial power replaced the other - but the colonies still remained. The history of imperialist wars in the period of the redivision of Africa is the heroic story of its anti-imperialist wars and liberation struggles of the Africans. Exploiting ruthlessly the world crisis for the purpose to extract ten times more riches from Africa - that is the essence of imperialist parasitism ( the business with starvation, with water, with resources, with weapons, with labor, etc).

Neo-colonialism is the highest stage of colonialism.

Neo-colonialism is a "molted" colonialism, is "decolonialization" in words and re-colonialization in deeds. Neo-colonialism is the highest stage of colonialism - is parasitic, decaying, dying colonialism. Imperialism, itself, destroys its own hinterland. And without its hinterland imperialism is doomed to die.

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the teaching of the preparation, recruitment, centralized organization and mobilization of the international proletarian army, in general, and the transformation of the reserves of the imperialist hinterland into new proletarian detachments of the world socialist revolution, in particular.

The October Revolution - exactly 100 years ago - was the first step towards the socialist world revolution. There will be no socialist Africa without applying to the experiences and teachings of the October Revolution. The October Revolution heralded the unification of anti-imperialist war of the world proletariat and the war of liberation of the oppressed peoples. The continuation of the October Revolution and the world socialist revolution is the only way to liberate Africa from imperialist exploitation and oppression.

The weakening of the chain of world imperialism requieres the strengthening of the anti-imperialist chain in Africa.

With the development of capitalism in the colonies, the global development of world imperialism is nearly mature and complete - thus ready for the transformation into world socialism - also in Africa.

The expansion of imperialism in Africa - coupled with so much misery and blood - prepares its own decline and consequently its replacement by socialism. Unavoidably, that will be a new kind of socialism with global features - in the course of the globalization on the African continent and the socialist world revolution.

MESSAGE OF THE COMINTERN (SH) ON OCCASION OF AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY


MAY 25, 1963 - MAY 25, 2015


Today, we celebrate the 52nd anniversary of the African Liberation Day. This is an occasion to greet all exploited and oppressed peoples who struggle for their liberation from imperialist-capitalist enslavement not only in African but all over the world.

However, we must pay particular tribute to the enormous combats waged by African workers against colonialism and neo-colonialism since several centuries ago. They put forward this anti-colonialist fight during the former times of European (British, French, German, Portuguese, Belgian, etc.) imperialism and posteriorly, when world bourgeois class understood that neo-colonialism could better serve its interests, also against American, Soviet and more recent Chinese imperialism.

Unfortunately, the struggle of African peoples could never accomplish complete emancipation, it could never be concluded through genuine socialist revolution and proletarian dictatorship under the vanguard leadership of authentic Bolshevist parties of Leninist-Stalinist type. In 1979, comrade Enver Hoxha made an affirmation that is still entirely suitable nowadays:

Africa is a mosaic of peoples with an ancient culture. Each African people has its own culture, customs, way of life, which, with some variations, are at a very backward stage, for well-known reasons. The awakening of the bulk of these peoples has only recently begun. De jure, the African peoples, in general, have won their freedom and independence. But there can be no talk of genuine freedom and independence, since most of them are still in a colonial or neo-colonial state. (…) The imperialists are ruling most of the African countries again through their concerns, their capital invested in industry, banks, etc. The overwhelming bulk of the wealth of these countries continues to flow to the metropolises. (…) The African population remained culturally and economically undeveloped (…)The policy pursued by the big landowners, the reactionary bourgeoisie, the imperialists and the neo-colonialists is intended to keep the African peoples in permanent bondage, in ignorance, to hinder their social, political and ideological development, and to obstruct their struggle to gain these rights.” (Enver Hoxha, Imperialism and the Revolution, Tirana, 1979, edition in English)

Thus, world bourgeois class continued to put its colonialist and neo-colonialist claws over Africa and its resources and workforce. We also take this opportunity to recall the indispensable role played by all kinds of bourgeois-reformist and revisionist movements to ensure that capitalist-imperialist system could keep African toilers under its dominance. From the Krushchevist, Maoist, etc. revisionisms to the so-called “African ways to socialism” and “Pan-African / Pan-Arabian” and “non-aligned” movements - all of them contributed to that.

But now, it is time for African proletariat to finish what it was left half-way through constructing a Section of the Comintern (SH) in each African country and through faithfully applying the invincible teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha.

Only in this manner will they manage to be part of the glorious global red proletarian army that will defeat world capitalism-imperialism once for all towards world socialism and world communism.


Long live the 52nd anniversary of the African Liberation Day!

Long live the struggle of African and world workers for their liberation from exploitation and oppression!

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhaism!

Long live world socialist revolution and violent proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the African Sections of the Comintern (SH)!

Long live the Comintern (SH) – the only true Bolshevist world party!

Zambia: Anti-Chinese protests. 

 

 

 

 

Some 11 Zambian miners were shot October 2010 while protesting conditions at the Collum Coal Mine in Southern Zambia; two of them critically. Workers were protesting low pay and horrendous conditions when shots were fired by two of the mines Chinese social-imperialists' supervisors. Locals responded with militant protests in support of the miners including blocking a mine entrance road. The increase in the Chinese presence throughout Africa (and indeed the world) is well known and there have been numerous complaints from workers and Union leaders about the low wages and unsafe conditions at Chinese owned mines in Africa. One issue in this case is the issuing of arms to supervisors and them carrying them at the mine says Rayford Mbulu, President of the Miners Union of Zambia. “We don’t care what investments the Chinese are bringing in to the country. We cannot allow them to shoot miners like that.” he says.In order to counter accusations of neo-colonialism and exploitation by a foreign giant, the Chinese bureaucracy repeatedly raises its credentials as a former victim of colonialism which makes it a kinder, gentler exploiter. But we don’t have to look any further than its own shores to see how it treats workers. There have been major clashes and anti-Chinese riots in Zambia and other parts of Africa in opposition to what many see as simply another colonial power stealing Africa's wealth. 

 

Zambian copper miners are fighting to improve labour conditions.

 

 

 

A Chinese copper firm is to invest $100 million in a mining project in Zambia in order to produce 600 tonnes of copper cathodes a year, further increasing China’s investment in Africa as it seeks raw materials.

A Zambian website which carried a report about our demonstrations soon had more than 80 comments – mainly supportive of our action. The Zambian Foreign Affairs and Tourism Minister, Given Lubinda, said that we should go home and “participate in various processes aimed at bringing harmony”. He ignored the reasons why an estimated 2 -3 million Zimbabweans out of a population of about 12 million have been forced into exile by Mugabe’s oppression and his destruction of the economy. Nor did Lubinda explain why Sata was supporting Mugabe in his less than ‘harmonious’ brutal suppression of dissent.

In einer Botschaft an die Nation zum Unabhängigkeitstag Sambias untertreicht der Generalsekretär der Vereinigten Nationalen Unabhängigkeitspartei, UNIP, unter Anderem:

"Heute im 12. Jahr der Unabhängigkeit unseres Landes hängt unsere Zukunft von der Einheit, von der gewaltigen Arbeit und von unseren eigenen Kräften ab. Die rassistischen Minderheits-Regimes halten weiterhin unsere Brüder und Schwestern in Südafrika, Zimbabwe und Namibia in Knechtschaft. Wir müssen den Unabhängigkeitskampf in diesen Ländern weiterhin unterstützen."

Ferner heißt es in der Botschaft:

"Die imperialistischen Kräfte unterdrücken nach wie vor andere Nationen. Wir müssen die unterdrückten Völke5r überall auf der Welt unterstützen, weil sie für eine gerechte Sache kämpfen."

Die afrikanischen Völker verurteilen weiter die ausländische Intervention in Angola. Überall werden Treffen und Versammlungen organisiert, bei denen die Intervention der beiden Supermächte, des US-Imperialismus und des sowjetischen Sozialimperialismus verurteilt wird, die in Rivalität miteinander unter jeder Bedingung versuchen, Angola ihrer Kontrolle zu unterstellen.

Dazu wurden in vielen Städten Sambias große Kundgebungen veranstaltet. Bei einer in Ndola, Provinz Kupende, organisierten Kundgebung nahmen hunderte Einwohner teil, die scharf die Einmischung der beiden Supermächte in die inneren Angelegenheiten Angolas verurteilten. Auf der Kundgebung wurde betont, dass das für das angolanische Volk noch schwerrere Folgen mit sich bringen wird. Weiter wurde die Notwendigkeit hervorgehoben, die Einheit gegenüber der Bedrohung durch die Großmächte zu verstärken, und die entschlossene Unterstützung des angolanischen Volkes in seiner gerechten Sache ausgedrückt.

Die militärischen Provokationen Südafrikas gegen Sambia

werden verurteilt

 

In einer Erklärung in den letzten Tagen wies der Präsident von Sambia, Kenneth Kaundajdar auf hin, daß das Regime von Pretoria in letzter Zeit die bewaffneten Provokationen gegen Sambia verstärkt 'hat, indem es Grenzdörfer mit Artillerie beschoß und aus der Luft bombardierte. Er betonte, daß das

Vorster-Regime trotz der Warnungen diese Aggressionsakte fortsetzt. "Sambia jedoch," unterstrich Kaunda , "ist entschlossen, alle niederträchtigen Provokationen der Rassisten zu zerschlagen." Er rief ebenfalls die übrigen unabhängigen afrikanischen Länder auf, die Einheit im Kampf gegen die Rassistenregime zu verstärken und die Hilfe für die Befreiungsbewegungen im Süden Afrikas zu erhöhen.

Die militärischen Provokationen Südafrikas gegenüber Sambia hat auch die Presse des Landes verurteilt. Dazu betont die Zeitung" Times of Zambia":

"Sambia wird niemals solche feindlichen Akte gegen das Land dulden."

"Diese Provokationen", hebt die Zeitung ebenfalls hervor, "zeigen erneut die Beunruhigung und große Panik, die das südafrikanische Rassistenregime durch den wachsenden Befreiungskampf erfaßt haben, der sich auf Azania und Namibia

erstreckt. "

Die andere sambische Zeitung" Daily MaH" verurteilt die verstärkten Provokationen des Vorster-Regimes gegen dieses unabhängige afrikanische Land.

"Niemals werden wir von unserem gerechten Kampf gegen die grausame Rassentrennung ablassen!" schreibt die Zeitung.

In einer neuesten Rede in Mufulira verurteilte der Präsident Sambias Kenneth Kaunda aufs schärfste die bewaffneten Angriffe des Pretoria-Regimes gegen sein Land, wobei 22 Personen getötet und weitere 45 verwundet wurden.

Er unterstrich, daß das Regime Südafrikas durch diese häßlichen Akte verzweifelte Versuche unternimmt, um die Aufmerksamkeit der Weltöffentlichkeit von seiner rassistischen Politik abzulenken. "Diese Politik jedoch," so Kaunda , "muß mit größtem Nachdruck gebrandmarkt werden." Außerdem betonte

der Präsident, daß sämtliche Bemühungen Pretorias gegen Sambia und andere afrikanische Länder Schiffbruch erleiden werden.

Die Streitkräfte von Sambia, Mosambik und Botswana erteilen
den rhodesischen Rassisten die verdiente Antwort
Die Truppen der aggressiven Armee des Salisbury-Regimes verübten dieser Tage eine neue Provokation gegen Sambia. Laut Agenturenmeldungen belegte die Artillerie der Rassisten die Grenzgebiete dieses afrikanischen Landes mit Beschuß. In der letzten Zeit haben die rhodestschen Rassistentruppen etliche bewaffnete Provokationen gegen Mosambik, Botswana und Sambia verübt.
Ferner haben sie weite Grenzgebiete dieser Länder unter Beschuß genommen, was viele Opfer forderte und großen Sachschaden verursachte. Die Streitkräfte dieser afrikanischen Länder haben den rhodesischen Rassisten die verdiente Antwort erteilt. Diese Aggressionstruppen wurden unter Verlusten an
Menschen und Heeresausrüstungen zurückgeschlagen.

 

Radio Tirana vom 5. 1. 1978


In einer Rede, die er vor einigen Tagen hielt, forderte der Präsident Sambias, Kenneth Kaunda, zur Verstärkung des bewaffneten Kampfes gegen den Rassismus auf. Der bewaffnete Kampf, betonte Kaunda, ist das wichtigste Mittel, um Simbabwe und Namibia zu befreien und der Apartheid in Südafrika ein Ende
zu setzen. Er unterstrich zugleich, daß die unabhängigen afrikanischen Länder ihre Hilfe und Unterstützung für die Befreiungsbewegung verstärken müssen.
Kaunda verurteilte die Rassistenregime im südlichen Afrika, die die Völker dieser Gegend unterdrücken und wiederholt Aggressionsakte gegen die unabhängigen Nachbarländer unter-nehmen. Angesichts der ständigen militärischen Drohungen der Rassisten, sagte Kaunda, müssen wir unsere Verteidigung stärken.
Er verwies auch auf die Bedeutung, die die Verstärkung der Einheit hat, um jede Aggression der Rassisten abzuwehren.

Wie bereits berichtet, unternahmen am 7. März die Rassistentruppen Rhodesiens eine bewaffnete Aggression gegen Sambia. Die Truppen überquerten den Sambesi-Fluß und rhodesische Kampfflugzeuge bombardierten brutal die
Grenzgebiete Sambias. Als Ergebnis dieses barbarischen Angriffs fanden zahlreiche Bauern, Frauen und Kinder sowie Greise den Tod.
Diese Aggression sowie die ständigen Provokationen der Rassisten von Salisbury gegen Botswana und Mosambik wurden von einer Reihe Länder des afrikanischen Kontinents entschieden verurteilt. In der Presse dieser Länder werden
alle Afrikaner zur Unterstützung der Länder aufgefordert, gegen die Provokationen ausgeübt werden, um dem Smith-Regime die gebührende Antwort zu erteilen.
Der Präsident Botswanas, Seretse Khama, unterstrich in einem Interview unter anderem, daß das Smith-Regime durch seine niederträchtigen Akte erneut beweist, daß es auf seine Aggressionspolitik nicht verzichtet hat.

Die Presse, die Staatsführer und die fortschrittlichen und revolutionären Menschen auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent verurteilen mit Empörung die fortwährenden aggressiven Akte der rhodesischen Rassisten gegen Sambia.
In einer Botschaft an den Präsidenten Sambias, Kaunda, drückt der tansanische Präsident Nyerere seine Bewunderung für die heldenhafte Verteidigung Sambias durch seine Nationalverteidigungskräfte gegen die bewaffneten Angriffe
der Rassisten aus. Der tansanische Präsident bringt ebenfalls erneut die entschlossene Unterstützung seines Landes für den bewaffneten Kampf der simbabwischen Patrioten gegen das Rassistenregime zum Ausdruck.
Die tansanische Zeitung "Uhuru" brandmarkt ihrerseits die ständigen Angriffe des Rassistenregimes von Salisbury und unterstreicht dazu, daß dieses Regime die Unabhängigkeit der Nachbarländer nicht respektiert. "Wie soll man glauben, daß dieses Regime dem Volk die Unabhängigkeit geben wird?" fragt die Zeitung.
In einer unlängst in der sambesischen Presse veröffentlichten Erklärung verurteilen die namibiachen Patrioten heftig die zahlreichen Akte der bewaffneten Aggression gegen Sambia. "Diese ständigen Versuche Smiths , den Kampf der simbabwischen Patrioten zu unterdrücken," heißt es in der Erklärung, "sind zum Scheitern verurteilt, und sie werden auch angestchts der Entschlossenheit der sambischen Nationalverteidigungskräfte scheitern." "Wir," so betonen
die namibischen Patrioten, "werden Seite an Seite mit den simbabwischen und azanischen Kämpfern gegen die beiden Rassistenregime Vorsters und Smiths noch entschlossener kämpfen. "
