Sasco: Freedom Day for the rich

2010-04-26 19:04
Johannesburg - Freedom Day marks the day economic freedom was surrendered in exchange for political freedom, the SA Students Congress said on Monday.

"We have secured a democracy that gives the rich the right to rule the roost in our political and economic terrain," said Sasco president Mbulelo Mandlana in a statement.

He said the democracy attained in 1994 had allowed "tenderpreneurs" to accumulate while failing to deliver even the goods and services they were contracted to deliver, resulting in collapsing RDP houses, roads and bridges, "to name a few".

He called on students and workers to use Freedom Day, as a day to strategise on how to expropriate the ill-gotten wealth of the black and white bourgeoisie.

"We call on all students and workers not to spare a moment but mobilise to defeat capitalism and neo-liberalism in the movement and in society."

He said students and workers would celebrate Freedom Day when education was free.

"For now, we will stay in our dilapidated houses and residences and watch the ululation go by."
