2014-12-15 14:17

To be an Economic Freedom Fighter, you have to subscribe to their constitution. A few tips on membership follow from the draft constitution, expected to be discussed and adopted at the National People’s Assembly in Bloemfontein today.

1. EFF is a Marxist, Leninist and Fanonist organisation concerned with the complete overthrow of the neoliberal anti-black state and the establishment of a dictatorship of the people.

2. EFF takes part in and promotes global and African struggles.

3. Members should know and endorse the seven non-negotiable cardinal principles for economic emancipation.

4. Any South African citizen older than 16 can join if recommended by two EFF members and “examined” by a branch.

5. Members of the EFF may not join or associate with organisations and activities that contradict EFF principles.

6. EFF members must continuously raise their level of political consciousness and not bring the EFF into disrepute.

7. The EFF acts as a collective and the sowing of disunity within its ranks and amongst the oppressed will “severely be dealt with”.

8. The paramount organisational principle of the EFF is democratic centralism, mandate, accountability and selflessness.
