The Economic Freedom Fighters will liberate all the oppressed people of the world, leader Julius Malema has said.

“All the oppressed people in the world, we want them liberated,” he told supporters at Thokoza Park in Soweto today.

“We seek to liberate the world and Africa in particular.”

Malema addressed a large crowd that had gathered at the park to celebrate the organisation’s one year anniversary.

He said the party was an international organisation and more parties would emerge in other countries.

“Children of Africa, freedom is coming. We have not tasted freedom. Freedom will come with the coming revolution,” said Malema.

He said people of Western Sahara, Botswana and South Africa were still oppressed and needed to be freed.

He said white monopoly capital was still pulling the strings in South Africa and the people would never enjoy freedom as long as that continued.

“[The] ANC has given them that freedom. We want to return that freedom,” he said.

Malema said the EFF was going to be around for many years to come as he could not imagine a future without the organisation.

“The future looks very bright,” he said.

Malema also said the Democratic Alliance must be rejected at all costs as it is funded by people from Israel.

“All of us must reject the DA. The DA gets money from Israel,” he said.

Malema told supporters that his organisation was the only one in the country that supported the people of Palestine.

“The people who fight with the people of Palestine in South Africa is EFF. We are the only organisation that said the ambassador of Israel must leave the country.”

Malema said the world could never be free as long as the people of Palestine were still oppressed.

He called on South Africans to boycott Woolworths as it was allegedly importing products from Israel.

“We must take a stand, those of us who can afford to buy from Woolworths to say we are no longer buying,” he said.
